One of the most anticipated films of the South, Indian 2 went on the floors in Chennai on the festive occasion of Pongal last week. The pictures from the sets went viral instantly on social media, thus proving the craze of the movie buffs around the Film. Kamal Haasan will play the role of Senapathi and Kajal Aggarwal will essay the role of the leading lady. And if latest buzz is anything to go by, Abhishek Bachchan is roped in to play a very powerful role in the film. There has been no confirmation from the actor or the makers as yet. But if this turns out to be true, Indian 2 will mark Abhishek's debut in Tamil cinema.
Few days ago, reports suggested that Indian 2 will also star another Tamil star, STR aka Simbu, in an important role. However, according to latest reports, Simbu has opted out of the film. We hear STR opted out of the film due to unsettled dues from producers Lyca Productions who have also bankrolled Simbu s other film Vantha Rajathan Varuven. Could Abhishek be playing the same role in the film? Watch this space as we will get you updates on the same.
Abhishek was last seen in Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyaan. He gave the voiceover for Bagheera in the Hindi dubbed version of Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle. Recently, while talking to Karan Johar about his two year long absence from cinema after Housefull 3, he had said, "I don't think it was the pressure of what was happening. Rather it was more about my approach towards my work which I thought was incorrect. I was becoming very complacent and comfortable. To call a spade a spade, I was part of huge films, huge budgets, huge stars, huge collections, everything was hunky dory. I had no pressure on me because I was standing behind somebody else who takes all the pressure. I was making lots of money and so were those films...it became very easy. I didn't come to industry to stand behind anyone."
