Star director Shankar is presently working on his latest project ‘Indian 2′(Bharateeyudu 2 in Telugu) which is a sequel to the 90s superhit ‘Indian’. Kamal Haasan who has mesmerized the audience with his mindblowing performance as Senapathy is playing the lead role in the sequel as well.
Director Shankar has replaced AR Rahaman with Anirudh Ravichander for the sequel. As the music of ‘Indian’ is considered one of the best works of AR Rahman till date, there are some mixed reactions on Shankar’s choice. Some AR Rahaman fans were upset as well. Responding to these reactions, Anirudh tried to clarify the issue in his recent interview. He said that “Indian is a cult album and it is one of my most favorite Rahman sir’s albums. I know that comparisons are bound to happen whenever there is a sequel. But Rahman sir is Rahaman sir. No one can match him. I can’t recreate the magic Indian created in the 90s. But I will try to give my best to the film. My sincere request to the audience is please don’t compare the two films.”
Kajal Aggarwal is the heroine of this movie. Ravi Varman is the cinematographer. Subhaskaran is bankrolling the project under Lyca Productions banner.
