Would Ajith do Indian – 2?
The Tamil film industry has been abuzz with rumors that producer AM Rathinam, who had produced the one of the biggest ever hits in Tamil, ‘Indian’, is interested in making a sequel. ‘Indian’ was released in 1996, and was also the country’s official entry that year at the Academy Awards.
The Tamil version of the film grossed over $10 million at the box office marking a new career peak for the Tamil cinema industry. Shankar, who had directed the massive hit that starred Kamal Hassan, would be approved to direct the sequel as well. And instead of Kamal Hassan, the sequel, in all probability would have Ajith playing the lead role.
It should be remembered that Shankar and Ajith would have worked together for ‘ Jeans’. Sadly this didn’t work out, and Ajith’s loss had turned out to be Prasanth’s gain.
Unconfirmed reports also suggest that the preliminary discussions regarding the film would start soon. Ajith who is riding high on the success of his latest release ‘Mankatha’ would indeed have another film to be proud of, if ‘Indian – 2′ materializes beyond the discussion stage.
