Indian 2 had its own share of difficulties and nothing came in so easy for the director. There were reports of how Lyca Productions didn't want to invest so much in Shankar's directorial, especially after the failure of 2.0 at the box office. They wanted him to cut down on his budget and he was against the idea. Indian 2 is special for him and Haasan fans on so many levels. The movie is touted as Kamal Haasan's final release in the movie industry before he enters politics and diverts his entire focus on it. Indian 2 also stars Siddharth, Rakul Preet Singh, Vidyut Jammwal, Kajal Aggarwal, Priya Bhavani Shankar and Aishwarya Rajesh in key roles.
