Actor Kamal Haasan was set to begin shoot for Indian 2 last December. However due to various reasons, it was announced that the shoot is postponed. Meanwhile reports said Kamal Haasan had been on a vacation to Dubai by the end of December. Now that the actor-politician is back, sources say the shoot would begin 18 January. Sources close to the Indian 2 unit say, 'Set works are being taken up. It involves mammoth effort and once the works are over, Kamal would begin shoot'.
Produced by Lyca International and directed by Shankar, Indian 2 is a sequel to Kamal Haasan's earlier hit. Kajal Agarwal has been assigned to play the heroine while music is by Anirudh.
Kamal Haasan will shed his weight for the role and Kajal Agarwal is learning kalaripayattu for the film.
