Last year saw many memorable announcements in the Tamil film industry and one among them was Indian 2 finally flagging off.

Indian 2 will see Kamal Haasan joining hands with director Shankar after a gap of 22 years and fans are quite excited about the prospects of the sequel, which will have these two industry stalwarts bringing in more experience to the project.

Last week saw Shankar kickstarting work on the film in Taiwan, which was revealed on his Twitter page.

That said, reports have now surfaced stating actor Nayanthara is being eyed to play the female lead in Indian 2. If the 'Lady Superstar' does go on to sign up for the highly anticipated film, it will mark the first time that she would be paired with Kamal Haasan.

Although no casting announcements have been made so far, we wonder whether Manisha Koirala, who starred in the 1996 blockbuster Indian would make an appearance in the upcoming sequel.

It must be noted that another Bollywood actor Urmila Matondkar too played an important role in the original f.

Veteran actor Sukanya too had a prominent role in the 1996 film and her appearance in the sequel also makes us ponder.

Not much is known regarding the plot of Indian 2 at this point, but akin to the first film, we can expect it to shed light on the present day scenario of corruption across the country.
