Director Shankar is still basking in the success of his recently-released film 2.0, which grossed around Rs 800 crore worldwide. The film is expected to earn more as it will release in about 56000 screens in China in May.
Now, Shankar is busy with the pre-production work of Kamal Haasan-starrer Indian 2. The shooting is expected to begin on January 18 in Pollachi, according to sources.
Going by the latest rumors, it is said that the maverick director might get back to science fiction yet again. Speculations are rife that he has etched a sci-fi story, which might be his next film after Indian 2.
Sources reveal that the director is in talks with Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan to play the lead role. Since talks are in a nascent stage, nothing has been finalized regarding this movie.
Shankar is planning to wrap up Indian 2 by the end of this year.
