Kamal Haasan, the versatile actor and producer, has reportedly taken up another role for his upcoming film, the S Shankar-directed Indian 2. According to sources, Kamal Haasan is helping out with the editing of the film, which is a sequel to the 1996 blockbuster Indian. The film, which earned Kamal his fourth National Film Award, was also India’s official entry to the Academy Awards that year.
Indian 2, which has been in the making for a long time, is said to have a runtime of approximately five hours. Therefore, the film’s makers reportedly made the decision to turn the film into two parts. However, Kamal Haasan does not agree with this idea and believes that the film can be trimmed down to a single part. He is said to have taken on the mantle of editor for Indian 2 and is working closely with the director to reduce the length of the film.
In June, Kamal Haasan had gifted a high-end watch to Shankar as a token of appreciation, having been greatly impressed by a few scenes from Indian 2 that he watched.
He had also praised Shankar on Twitter and advised him to not consider this as his peak and seek many new heights.
Shankar had thanked Kamal for his kind words and gesture and said that his performance and presence brought an essential essence to the film.
Kamal Haasan’s look in Indian 2
On the occasion of Independence Day, Shankar had unveiled another still from the film that showcases Kamal Haasan in an entirely unrecognisable avatar.
The fresh image portrays Senapathy aka Indian (Kamal) donning a khaki outfit as he stands adjacent to a platform and rests against it.
The background is adorned with a cluster of tricoloured balloons, and he can be seen proudly wearing a tricoloured badge on his chest. With a resolute gaze focused in one direction, Senapathy conveys that he is embarking on yet another mission.
Kamal Haasan’s political views in Indian 2
Kamal Haasan, who is also the founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party, had previously revealed that Indian 2 would talk about the present political situation.
He had said that he would express his views regarding the current political scenario through S Shankar. The actor had also mentioned in an interview that he had signed Indian 2, keeping in mind his political career.
However, ever since the release of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Vikram, Kamal Haasan has been actively signing back-to-back films in multiple languages.
