After a reported fallout between Lyca productions and director Shankar Shanmugham, it looks like all's well and the filming of Indian 2 is all set to begin soon. While the film was earlier almost on the verge of getting shelved, we now hear Indian 2 will be going on the floors soon. Director Shankar and Kamal Haasan are all set to team up after nearly two decades and as per reports, the shooting of the film is all set to begin from August 19. While there have been several speculations about Rakul Preet Singh replacing Kajal Agarwal in the film, we finally have some news about the final cast of the film. While we knew that Kamal Haasan will be starring in the film along with Siddharth, there was no clarity over the female leads.

Now, we hear, both Rakul Preet Singh and Kajal Agarwal will be a part of the film. We earlier had confirmation about Priya Bhavani Shankar and Aishwarya Rajesh who will be playing key roles in the film. Buzz is that Rakul Preet will be playing the love interest of Siddharth's character, who is a grandson of the vigilante Senapathi and son of Chandru, both roles played by Kamal Haasan in the original film. A confirmation on Bollywood actor Vidyut Jamwal's casting as the lead antagonist in the film is yet to come. In case Jamwal does comes on board, it looks like Indian 2 will pack a punch for sure with this stellar cast.
