For a very long time, Indian 2 was being delayed due to various hurdles. The film, which went on floors a couple of years ago, hit a roadblock after a freak crane accident happened on the sets. Following this, the film also suffered legal obstacles after disagreements cropped up between Shankar and production house Lyca Productions.
However, recently, actor-politician Udhayanidhi Stalin confirmed that works for the film will be restarted by the banner. In a pleasant turn of events, the makers had also released a new poster of Indian 2, which confirms that Udhayanidhi will be also producing the film along with Lyca Productions.
