Kamal Haasan's Indian 2 have clarified that the film will not release in two parts
Kamal Haasan's much-anticipated film, Indian 2, has been in the news for various reasons. A few days ago, there were reports that the makers of the film have decided to drop the project as they have incurred a huge loss. However, the team denied it as a rumour.
Now, the latest buzz in the industry is that, Lyca Productions, who is bankrolling the film have decided to release it in two parts. Though the team had completed only 60 percent of the film, reports suggest that they have six-hours of footage on the editing table. This had apparently forced the makers to contemplate releasing the film in two parts, similar to the Baahubali series.
However, when IndiaToday.in contacted Lyca Productions, the spokesperson of the production house, clarified that the project will not be released in two parts. "For the past few days, there are a lot of rumours around the film, and we are quite upset about it. The film will not be released in two parts as widely speculated. The editing works are progressing at a brisk pace and hopefully, the shoot will resume post lockdown."
An official announcement regarding the progress of the project is likely to be made in the coming days.
The film's shoot got stalled after a crane crashed on people on February 19 at EVP Film City, Chennai. Three technicians were killed and more than 10 people were injured in the horrific accident.
Directed by Shankar, Indian 2 is the sequel to his blockbuster film Indian, which released in 1996. Touted to be a political thriller, the film also features Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, Priya Bhavani Shankar and Vivekh in pivotal roles.
