Shankar-Kamal Haasan's Indian 2 was facing non-stop hassles ever since the shoot began with the last hurdle being the fatal deaths of 3 crew members in a crane accident on the sets. Further, there were also reports about Shankar's deciding to leave midway as there were no updates from the producers regarding the shoot plans. Also, Kamal Haasan got busy with his political party's activities and wanted to involve in a full-fledged campaign for TN Assembly elections. All these had put Indian 2's shoot in the backseat. Now, we hear that Kamal will start the shoot in January 2021. Kamal Haasan will play the role of Senapathi, the deadly old man who is out preying for corrupt officers.
