About Indian and Indian 2

Indian saw Kamal play dual roles as Senapathy and his son Chandrabose. While Senapathy is a freedom fighter and army veteran turned vigilante who is out to curb corruption, his son doesn’t seem to hold the same ideals. The film ends with Senapathy not sparing even his child for the betterment of the country and a promise that he will be back whenever he’s needed.

Indian 2 sees Kamal reprise his role with Kajal Aggarwal, Siddharth, and Rakul Preet Singh roped in to play new characters. While it is rumoured that Kajal plays Senapathy’s wife Amrithavalli, played by Sukanya in the first film, the film’s team hasn’t addressed the same. The film is expected to see Senapathy return to India from Hong Kong to help someone in need.

Apart from Indian 2, Kamal will also soon be seen in Nag Ashwin's Telugu film Kalki 2898 AD and Mani Ratnam's Thug Life.
