Kamal Haasan's 'Indian 2,' Suriya-starrer 'Suriya 42' go on floors
Two of the highly-anticipated Tamil films—Indian 2 and Suriya 42 went on floors on Wednesday (August 24)! While Indian 2 had commenced filming back in February 2020, its shooting is now back on track after a two-year long delay. On the other hand, after the mahurat pooja for Suriya 24 was held a few days ago, the makers have now begun filming. Read on.
Indian 2 will mark Kamal Haasan's return to the role of the veteran vigilante—Senathypathy. The film's shoot had arrived at a standstill back in February 2020 after a crane with heavy-duty light collapsed killing three persons on the set and injuring 10 others. The freak accident left people assuming that the film was shelved but now, filmmaker Shankar has confirmed otherwise.
Sharing the new poster for the film, the filmmaker took to his social media handles to make the announcement. He wrote, "Good morning Indians, we are glad to announce that the remaining shoot for Indian 2 is commencing today! Need all of your support and wishes (sic)." The film also stars Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, Bobby Simhaa, and Priya Bhavani Shankar.
