Director Shankar is neck deep with the post-production work of Rajinikanth’s 2.0. He has however already announced his next project with Kamal Haasan. The duo will work on the sequel to their previous hit Indian. Earlier the film was supposed to be made by Telugu producer Dil Raju but he backed out due to the high production costs and remuneration.

Indian 2 will now be backed by 2.0 makers Lyca productions. The technical team will include Cinematographer Ravi Varman of Anniyan fame and 2.0 production manager Muthuraj.

Reports also say that for the first time Shankar will work with Anirudh for Indian 2. He will not collaborate with hi usual staple A R Rahman. This will be a huge opportunity for Anirudh who is branching into Tollywood currently. Official announcement awaited.
