And the first posters of Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan, are out. Director S Shankar announced that he’ll start filming the sequel to his 1996 hit film and he also revealed that in Indian 2, Kamal Haasan’s Senapathy will be “older, wiser and deadlier.” Kamal Haasan played the role of Senapathy, a former freedom fighter, who rechristened himself as Indian, a vigilante who vowed to eliminate all corrupt officers from government offices.
At the end of Indian, Senapathy escaped a deadly blast and told the officer in charge of arresting him that he’ll return when his services will be required. After two decades, it appears that Senapathy has decided to return.
Composer Anirudh Ravichander is riding high on the success of his recently-released album Petta starring Rajinikanth. It looks like the composer’s career is soaring high as he has been scoring tunes for the bigwigs in the Tamil and Telugu film industries.
For several months, rumours about Anirudh composing for Indian 2 have been doing the rounds. Recently, the music director confirmed that he is indeed a part of Indian 2’s technical crew, in an interview to a radio channel. The posters also implied the composer’s part in the movie.
The first part of the film had A.R Rahman as composer. Songs and background music of the film were well received by the audience as well as critics. On knowing about Aniruth’s arrival in the sequel of ot many fans felt disappointed and expressed their emotions in social media.

Now the music director, in an interview with Indiaglitz, has opened on Shankar’s choice of Aniruth. In the interview, the maestro said that Kamal Haasan kept on insisting A.R Rahman to do the composition for the movie. “Sometimes when you work with the same person you will get bored. That does not challenge us. Meanwhile the work we done for 2.0 was just exhausting and he always thought that I overworked. And another reason is Shankar has done this in the past. He worked Anniyan with Harris and Nanban with him as well and always came back to me” said A.R Rahman in the interview.
Wish this combo works out for another film
