In the world of entertainment and more so the Indian entertainment industry,nothing succeeds like success. Now that Kamal Haasan’ Vikram made substantial profits in Tamil pockets(it was a washout in Hindi) Kamal is once again looking at his film career with keen interest , having temporarily sidelined cinema for politics.
One of the first projects to get the immediate go-ahead from Kamal Haasan is Shankar’s Indian 2, the sequel to the very successful 1996 vigilante Tamil film,and a rare example of a Kamal Haasan film that did well in its Hindi version(Hindustani) as well.
Sources from Chennai tell me Shankar will now focus “completely” on Indian 2 , while his other underproduction directorial starring Ram Charan Teja in Telugu is for now being put on the backburner.
“Kamal Haasan personally requested Shankar to give all his undivided attention to the Indian sequel.Ram Charan’s film will have to wait,” says the source.
