- Indian 2 may be Kamal Haasan's last film
- The filmmakers have reportedly approached Ajay Devgn for the film
- Kajal Aggarwal has been signed as the film's heroine
And the first posters of Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan, are out. Director S Shankar announced that he'll start filming the sequel to his 1996 hit film today and he also revealed that in Indian 2, Kamal Haasan's Senapathy will be "older, wiser and deadlier." Kamal Haasan played the role of Senapathy, a former freedom fighter, who rechristened himself as Indian, a vigilante who vowed to eliminate all corrupt officers from government offices. At the end of Indian, Senapathy escaped a deadly blast and told the officer in charge of arresting him that he'll return when his services will be required. After two decades, it appears that Senapathy has decided to return.

In Indian, Senapathy also killed his own son Chandru (also Kamal Haasan) for taking a bribe which resulted in the death of several innocent children. Senapathy will tackle new enemies in this film. Earlier, it was reported that actor Ajay Devgn has been approached to play a pivotal role in the film. Actress Kajal Aggarwal's casting as the female lead has been confirmed.
Last year, speaking to media persons Kamal Haasan hinted that Indian 2might be his last film as he wants to explore his potential as a politician. "I will have to wind up to be effective as a politician... you have to dedicate time totally (for politics). But I will have my production company continuing in the field. Somebody else will run it," PTI quoted him as saying.
Kamal Haasan was last seen in Vishwaroopam 2.
