Sources say that the actress’ demanded a very high remuneration and did not agree to certain terms and conditions from the production house
Indian 2, the sequel to 1996 blockbuster Indian has been making the headlines almost every day ever since it was announced by Shankar and Kamal Haasan on Bigg Boss last year. It was also said that Nayanthara will be playing one of the female leads in the film. Kajal Aggarwal also confirmed that she will be playing another female lead in the film.
The latest is that Nayanthara is yet to sign up after disagreement over terms and conditions with the producers. Source in the know of things told DTNext, “Yes, all is not well between the makers and Nayanthara. She has demanded a remuneration of over Rs 6 crore. Moreover, there were also a few disagreements over movie promotions and rest of the movie cast. This has made Shankar unhappy as the movie is all set to begin soon.” Reacting to this, an official source from the film unit told us, “The producers aren’t aware of who is being cast and who isn’t. It is Shankar, who has to take a call whether Nayanthara is part of the film.”
Recently, director Shankar and the cinematographer of the film Ravi Varman, were scouting locations. Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan is expected to shed weight for the titular role and a special trainer will be flown down from the US to help him achieve the goal. We hear that the actor-filmmaker has already begun the preparation. “An official announcement of this will be made soon. Till then the makers have requested not to speculate about anything on the project,” added the source. Indian 2 is also expected to feature Simbu in a pivotal role and will have Anirudh Ravichander composing the music.
