Is Ajay Devgn part of Indian 2?

Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan, who is awaiting the release of his pet project Vishwaroopam 2, is busy promoting the film in multiple languages. The film, which was shot in Tamil, will also be released in Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi.

During the promotions, Haasan has also shed light on his upcoming film Indian 2, which will be directed by Shankar. It was rumoured that the film will have Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn playing the antagonist.

At a recent media interaction, Kamal was asked if Ajay Devgn is part of Indian 2. The Vishwaroopam actor revealed, "That's what I have been told. Ultimately, it is the director's call."

Indian 2 is a sequel to Shankar and Kamal Haasan's blockbuster film of the same name. The film, which released in 1996, had Kamal Haasan in dual roles - as that of a father and son. Indian focuses on father Kamal, who turns a vigilante to end corruption.

If all goes well, Indian 2 will go on floors by the end of this year. Director Shankar is busy with the post-production work on Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer 2.0.

Once Shankar and Haasan wrap up their present commitments, they'll concentrate on Indian 2.
