In a recent media interaction, Kamal Haasan said that director Shankar pitched the script of Indian 2 only after the actor’s political entry.
Kamal said he had asked Shankar long back to think about a sequel to Indian, but the director decided not to touch the blockbuster. But after Kamal Haasan’s recent political entry and his angst against the system, Shankar got an interesting one liner and he is developing it as a feature film.
Shankar is simultaneously supervising the post production work of '2.0' and concentrating on the pre-production of Indian 2.
Kamal Haasan had earlier said that his next after Vishwaroopam 2 will be Indian 2 and he will join the sets as soon as Shankar gets ready for the shoot. If all goes well, Indian 2 will go on floors by the end of this year.
