The Madurai District Court has adjourned the case seeking to ban the release of the much-anticipated film Indian 2, starring superstar Kamal Haasan in the lead role. The sequel to the legendary movie Indian, directed by Shankar, is set to feature an ensemble cast including Haasan, Samuthirakani, Bobby Simha, Kajal Aggarwal, Siddharth, Rakul Preet Singh, and Priya Bhavani Shankar. Aasan Rajendran, the head teacher of Varmakalai, Martial Arts, and Research Academy in Madurai's HMS Colony, has filed a petition against the film. Rajendran claims that Kamal Haasan consulted him for Varmakalai techniques during the making of the original Indian and his contributions were duly credited.

However, he alleges that Indian 2 employs these techniques without his permission, prompting his request to ban the movie's release both in theatres and on OTT platforms. The case was heard on Monday before a judge in the Madurai District Court. The court has ordered the hearing to be adjourned to July 11 after the Indian 2 film crew requested additional time to file a response to Rajendran's petition. Indian 2 is the sequel to the 1996 film Indian that starred Kamal as Veerasekaran Senapathy.
