During the event, actor Siddharth who is playing an important role in the political thriller came on stage to address the media and said, “Director Shankar trusted me with a role in Indian 2 where I'm starring opposite Kamal sir, and I'm very grateful for him.”

He went on to say, “I’m a Shankar sir's product and Kamal sir's student. Mark my words, ‘Thatha vararu Kadhara vida poraru’ (This loosely translates to ‘Grandfather is coming, and he is going to make you cry) that this will definitely create history.”

In the same event, Anirudh, the music director who helmed the background scores and music of the flick said, “The hard work by the legends will not fail for sure, and it is going to be a sure-shot blast.”


At the event, the captain of the ship Shankar Shanmugam who began the legacy of Senapathy spoke about the greatness of Kamal Haasan and his dedication as an actor.

Shankar said, “In the first film, we had barely put the prosthetics for about 20 days. Here it is for over 70 days here. We can keep talking about his dedication.”

Shankar concluded and said, “He's the last to leave the shooting spot everyday. We can see more of Kamal Haasan as an actor clearly in the sequel.”
