Madras High Court asks Lyca Production and Shankar to sort out their issues
Lyca Productions filed a petition seeking a ban on Shankar from directing other films before completing Indian 2
Madras High Court asked director Shankar and Lyca Productions to sort out their issues themselves and has adjourned the hearing to April 28.
Lyca Productions filed a petition at Madras High Court seeking a ban on Shankar from directing other films before completing their production venture Indian 2.
Indian 2 is the sequel to Shankar and Kamal Haasan's 1996 blockbuster. The film went on floors in 2020 and was stalled after a crane accident on the sets killed three people. Later, due to the coronavirus lockdown, the film's shooting has been further delayed.
Meanwhile, the director has signed two new projects - a Telugu film with Ram Charna and the Anniyan Hindi remake with Ranveer Singh. Lyca Production, however, wants the director to finish Indian 2 before moving on to his next project.
Shankar has said that he is not abandoning the project but will resume the shooting. He also said he would re-shoot the portions involving actor Vivekh, who recently passed away due to cardiac arrest.
Indian 2 will bring back Kamal Haasan as the vigilante Senapathy who fights against corruption. The film also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Nedumudu Venu, Siddharth, and Rakul Preet Singh in prominent roles.
