After almost two decades, Kamal Haasan is all set to entertain the audiences once again as the Senapathy from Indian in Shankar’s Indian 2. Ever since the movie was announced, fans have been looking forward to seeing Kamal Haasan in the same old white-haired man’s avatar who fights the bad guys. His impeccable makeup and brilliant acting in Indian had won him the National Award as well in 1996. Now, almost two decades later, he is all set to portray Senapathy all over again.
During the last year, there were reports that Ajay Devgn had been approached for a negative role in Indian 2 by Shankar.
However, things didn’t work and Ajay turned down Indian 2. The actor recently spoke to Midday and explained the reason behind for opting out of Shankar’s Indian 2. Ajay explained that Shankar wanted to shoot the film immediately, but he had already started working onTaanaji: The Unsung Warrior. Thus, he mentioned that due to lack of dates he opted out from the project.
Ajay also tried to clarify the rumours that suggested that he didn’t do Indian 2 due to a negative role.
Ajay said, “For an artiste, there are no shades of grey, black or white – the more layers you have in a role, the better it is. I loved doing movies like Khakee (2004) and Company (2002) where my negative characters were appreciated. I would love to play such roles again. I cannot say if it was grey or not because I am not doing it now; it’s somebody else’s role.”
