Indian is a vigilante film directed by Shankar, that had Kamal Haasan in the lead role alongside Manisha Koirala. The film had Kamal playing a dual role, as Chandru and Senapathi. It was a AR Rahman musical while Jeeva did the cinematography. The Sri Surya Movies production released way back in 1996, and is considered to be one of Shankar's best films.
Last year, Kamal and Shankar had announced that the second part of the film will happen. Shankar has now gone to Andhra and Telengana for location scouting, and the pre-production work has started. The latest addition to the cast is Nedumuni Venu, who was a part of the first installment as well. He will reprise his role of Krishnaswamy, the CBI Officer.
Indian 2 is produced by Lyca Productions, and has Nayanthara as the female lead. Further announcements will be made soon.
