Universal star Kamal Hassan is reuniting with director Shankar after two decades for the sequel to his blockbuster vigilante drama Bharateeyudu. The film has been tentatively titled as Indian 2 and Kajal Aggarwal has been roped in as the film’s leading lady.
Announcing the start of this much awaited sequel, Shankar revealed a striking poster of Kamal Hassan’s look as Senapathi. The image is captioned ‘Older, Wiser , Deadlier’ which hints that the lead character will be more intense in the sequel compared to the first part. Kamal Hassan played dual roles in the first part and Senapathi turned out to be one of the iconic characters ever. Senapathi fights vigorously against corruption and corrupt officials in the government.
Once again, Shankar is going to deal corruption in the present day scenario with this sequel. The regular shooting will commence from tomorrow and the film is slated for release next year. Anirudh Ravichander is going to compose the soundtrack.
