Indian 2 is one of the movies that fans of Kamal Hassan have been waiting for with bated breath. The Tamil feature is the follow-up to the 1996 vigilante action thriller Indian, which also starred Haasan in a double role. The film had been begun production some years ago and was facing delays over several issues. Earlier, in August this year, the shooting kickstarted again with Haasan joining in. Now, a fresh schedule of the upcoming film has begun in Chennai and the team has welcomed a new cast member on board.

Indian 2 back on track
Last year, Indian 2 raised many speculations and it was believed that the film has been shelved. Lyca Productions, the banner backing Indian 2, had moved to Madras High Court seeking to stop director Shankar from working on his other upcoming films and focus on completing Indian 2 first. In August, the film finally resumed shooting at a set in Vadapalani, Chennai. Shankar and Haasan were snapped on set with the actor sporting his signature moustache and clean-shaven look.
