Director Shankar has decided to reshoot the scenes of Vivek with a new actor. Recently, Vivek passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest. It was his long-time dream to share the screen space with Kamal Haasan, which came to true with Indian 2 but unfortunately, the actor passed away before completing his work on the film.
Reshooting Vivek’s scenes will further complicate the production given that Shankar and Lyca Productions are already at loggerheads. The production of Indian 2 hit a snag following a freak accident in February last year which killed three of Shankar’s assistants on the spot. The outbreak of the coronavirus and subsequent lockdown further delayed the project.
In the meantime, Kamal is now preparing to shoot with director Lokesh Kanajaraj for an action movie, titled Vikram. Shankar has also announced two new projects — one with Tollywood star Ram Charan and the remake of Anniyan in Hindi with Bollywood star Ranveer Singh. The production company has moved the court to stop Shankar from taking new projects before completing Indian 2.
