Kamal Haasan is revisiting one of the biggest hits of his career for his next big move. He is all set to begin the shoot of Indian 2, the sequel to his 2016 blockbuster, Indian (released as Hindustani in Bollywood). S Shankar, who made the headlines last year directing India's biggest film in 2.0, is returning as the director for the sequel. Kajal Aggarwal is the female lead in the movie, that will continue from where the first film ended. Indian 2 First Look: Kamal Haasan’s Senapathy Is Back With His Paralysing Two-Finger Trick!
On the occasion of Pongal, Shankar had shared the first look of the film that had Kamal Haasan's character Senapathi, the former freedom fighter turned vigilante. While the character is kept out of focus, his famous two-finger kalaripayattu attack to paralyse his enemies gets prominence.

Kamal Haasan fans have been complaining on social media that they wanted a proper look of his character. Perhaps to appease them, the makers have revealed a new poster that has an almost proper glimpse of wizened Senapathi in his INA (Indian National Army) uniform with the tagline 'Older, Wiser, Deadlier'.

The poster also confirms that the shoot for the film will begin from tomorrow. Let's hope that Indian 2 will give Kamal Haasan, one of the finest actors Indian cinema has ever seen, that much-needed box office success.
The first Indian film had Kamal Haasan in a double role. One role had him as Senapathi, and the other role had him play his son, a corrupt government employee who is killed by his own father at the end of the film. Manisha Koirala and Urmila Matondkar were the female leads in the film. Indian gave Kamal Haasan his fourth and final (yet) National Award for the Best Actor.
