Shankar’s 2. 0 was a mega blockbuster last year. Though the film didn’t have much in terms of promotion the Rajini factor along with Vfx and 3D effect ensured that the film enjoyed a dream run at the box office. Superstar Rajinikanth thrilled us in a triple role. The third role was the mini sized 3.0. That role was a pleasant surprise and had Rajini going all out. The kids loved it. The lack of songs was another major plus. Akshay Kumar was a big draw internationally. This was one of the good sequels in the last few years. Everyone was eager to know Shankar’s next.
Then came the announcement for Indian 2. This was supposed to be Kamal Hassan’s last film. Senapathy returns with Siddharth as his grandson. The first part was a huge hit as Kamal won us over as the lone crusader against corruption. Everyone was eager for Part 2. Now the part 2 comes as Ulaga Nayagan’s last film. Kajal Agarwal plays the heroine. It is supposed to be a commentary on Tamil Nadu’s current political climate. If the film scores at the box office it will be another good sequel.
The shooting of the film was stopped due to production issues much to the disappointment of Kamal Hassan fans even as Kamal Hassan got busy with his political career. There was also news that Shankar had moved onto his next film. But we have a good news now all the production and budget issues have been sorted out and the film moves forward with Lycaa as the producers. The shooting of the film will begin in June. Mean while Kamal Hassan is all set to return to Big Boss as well. The promo of the show released recently even as fans of the show are eagerly waiting to know the contestants of this show.
