The 1996 released film, Indian is one of the most important films for both Kamalhaasan and Shankar. The movie was the biggest blockbuster at the time of its release in both box office as well as critics. When the makers made an announcement about its sequel, both actor and director fans of the movie were ecstatic as this marks their reunion after 24 years after the release of the first part.
The principal photography of this film went on floors from late 2019 at a brisk pace. It was further interrupted following a major accident on sets and the Covid-19 pandemic. After multiple plans and discussions, the film resumed shooting from August 2022. But however, due to the sudden demise of the actors; Vivek and Nedumudi Venu (did a pivotal role in the first part), Shankar decided to use VFX to complete their remaining scenes.
During this phase, there was a rumuour that Indian 3 is on the cards and Udhayanidhi Stalin, one of the producers revealed it at a promotional event. However, it also raised so many questions about when it will go on floors as both Kamalhaasan and Shankar are also working subsequently for their other projects.
As per the latest buzz about this project, it is almost confirmed that Indian 3 is on cards and it will take lead from the climax of Indian 2. It is also noted that the footage that is on the edit table is already more than 6-7 hours which is the sum of 2 movies’ runtime. So, Director Shankar may decide to release it in 2 parts like Ponniyin Selvan and Bahubali. The official confirmation about this is yet to be released from the makers.
On the other side, currently, the team is in Lola VFX at Los Angeles, USA for the movie’s primary VFX portions. In addition, Lola VFX is very well-known for its de-aging VFX technology that has been used in Hollywood films such as Captain America, Avengers and many more. With this collaboration, we can also expect the look of the younger version of Kamalhaasan in this film.
