Since the two (Shankar and Kamal) subsequently became busy with their own respective projects, the idea of creating Indian 2 was stalled momentarily.
It was only stalled momentarily alright, for producer AM Ratnam has come up with a news that will bring smile to the faces of countless Kamal Haasan fans.
The Andhra based producer who ventured into Tamil cinema through Indian has confirmed that Indian 2 is definitely on and that he has already spoken about it with Shankar, according to a report.
Currently, since both Kamal and Shankar are busy, the pre production works for Indian 2 will begin next year and the film will be made in Tamil and Telugu, AM Ratnam has assured.
Indian, at the time of its release, had become the highest grossing Tamil film ever until it was surpassed by Padayappa, three years later. It was also nominated by India as its entry for the Best Foreign Language Film for the 1996 Academy Awards.
If the talks on Indian 2 materializes, Shankar will be joining hands with Kamal after almost two decades. Stay tuned for further updates on the project.
