For the past few days, the film was being shot at EVP Studios in Chennai.
However, it looks like there is a change in plans due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Shankar was set to shoot some important portions of the film in China. However, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the filmmakers are now contemplating the decision and are now on the lookout for a new location. It looks like Kamal Haasan has suggested Italy. Sources close to the team revealed that the filmmakers are planning to finalise Italy as the film’s shooting location.
Kamal Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet, Siddharth, and Priya Bhavani Shankar have shot their scenes in Chennai. Earlier, the team shot a couple of schedules in Hyderabad, Gwalior, and Rajasthan. More details regarding the film’s shooting schedule will be updated soon.
The film is produced by Lyca Productions. A year ago, Shankar had a major fallout with the members of Lyca Productions for spending more than the stipulated budget. After several rounds of meeting, Shankar decided to agree to Lyca’a condition and stick to the budget. If reports are to be believed, the shooting of Indian 2 will be wrapped up in a couple of months which will leave a few months for the film’s post-production. Indian 2 will hit the theatres in early 2021.
