Though Anirudh Ravichander is the music composer for Shankar’s Indian-2, the director’s good friend AR Rahman has introduced him to key officials of Reliance to resume the shoot of the film.
Sources say that Lyca Productions is no longer associated with the film and hence, Shankar is holding talks with two leading corporate production houses.
Buzz in the industry is that Reliance wanted to know the exact budget of Indian-2 so Shankar sent them a bounded script, budget break-down and looks of the actors. Reports also say that Shankar has also approached his Enthiran producers Sun Pictures to bankroll Indian 2.
If these corporate biggies opt out, Shankar has no other option left but to drop the film. But the latest update is that all issues between Lyca and Shankar have been amicably resolved.
