Sensational director Shankar has been criticized for his work in 'I' and 2.0. Both the films have been made on huge budgets and ended up as cost failures. 2.0 received a decent response and registered decent box-office numbers but it is because of the budget, the film ended up as a dud. Shankar is all set for his next project titled Indian 2 and Kamal Haasan is on board to reprise his role from the original. The first schedule of the film completed recently and Lyca Productions who bankrolled 2.0 are the producers of Indian 2.
The makers wanted a detailed budget of the film but Shankar was not in a mood to quote the budget after which Lyca Productions decided to walk out of the film. The shoot of the film has been kept on hold and it will start once Shankar finds a new producer for Indian 2. Kajal Agarwal is the heroine and Anirudh is the music composer. An update on this is awaited.
