Shankar to direct Kamal’s Thalaivan Irukkiran?
Kamal Haasan’s upcoming flick Thalaivan Irukkiran is going to be a star studded affair. The movie already has Thala Ajith, Katrina Kaif and even Jackie Chan expected to deliver some adrenaline pumping Kung fu stunts. With producer Aascar Ravichandran yet to come out with the official announcements, there are reports of Director Shankar stepping in to shoot this mega budget offering.
Shankar who is fresh from the success of his remake hit Nanban, has promised his fans that he won’t be attempting a remake in the future. The director, who scripted a success story for Kamal in his 1996 venture ‘Indian’, is more than willing to come out with a sequel of sorts starring Kamal in lead once again. Some time back when Kamal was quizzed, whether or not he had plans of doing a sequel to his hit ‘Nayagan’, his reply did surprise many present at the meet. The actor replied that he wasn’t sure about the sequel to ‘Nayagan’ but said that the possibility of him starring in a sequel to ‘Indian’ can’t be ruled out. Moreover it is already heard that Ajith will join Director Shankar as part of the Indian 2 sequel. The earlier released Indian which had Kamal in the lead was about a 70 year old man’s fight to weed out corruption from the Indian soil, that went on to become a blockbuster hit.
It will be a coming together of the Ulaganayagan, Shankar and Ajith for Indian 2.
