About Indian

Shankar’s 1996 Indian, also starring Manisha Koirala, Urmila Matondkar and Kasthuri Shankar, saw Kamal in dual roles as Senapathy and Chandru, a righteous father and a corrupt son. The film tells the story of an Army veteran who turns vigilante to teach corrupt officials a lesson to ensure they don’t take bribes. AR Rahman’s music for the film was a massive hit. The film was released in Telugu as Bharateeyudu and in Hindi as Hindustani.

Indian 2: Zero Tolerance

Indian 2, which comes with the tagline Zero Tolerance, has been in production since 2019, will see Kamal reprise his role as Senapathy. The sequel will also feature Kajal Aggarwal, Siddharth, and Rakul Preet Singh in lead roles. The film was temporarily put on hold after an accident injured the crew on sets in 2020. Shooting was also delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming resumed in 2022, with Shankar juggling shooting between this and Ram Charan, Kiara Advani-starrer Game Changer. Initially supposed to release in June, the producers pushed release to July.
