Legendary South Indian director Shankar is a name that needs no introduction. His filmography speaks volumes about his brilliance and the influence he had on the film industry through his stories and usage of visionary technology. He is going through a rough patch at the moment since movies like 'Snehitudu', 'I' and '2.0' failed to reach the expectations.

He started 'Indian 2' before the lockdown but it came to a halt due to various reasons. Shankar had a few issues with the producers and the unfortunate accident which caused the death of a few people on the sets forced the makers to put this film on hold.

In the meanwhile, Shankar moved on and started a pan-Indian film with Ram Charan as the lead. The shooting commenced long back and insiders claim that over 50% of the shooting has been wrapped up. The latest we hear is that Shankar decided to put #RC15 on hold and restart working on 'Indian 2'. Fans of Ram Charan are quite surprised by this.

Going into the details, the shootings of all Telugu films were kept on hold due to the decision taken by the Producers' Guild. While no one knows when the strike is going to be lifted, the star director is reportedly planning to get back onto the work of 'Indian 2' with Kamal Hassan and shoot it for 10 - 12 days. Once the shootings get resumed in Telugu, Shankar will be handling the megaphone for #RC15 once again.

Many are wondering about the reason behind jumping in between the shoots for such a short period of time as 'Indian 2' is not a film that gets done in 10 or 12 days. Only Shankar knows the answer to this.

Shankar's project is Charan's 15th project and Dil Raju's 50th movie under their banner. Kiara Advani is the heroine in this project while Thaman is the music composer. Prominent actors like Sunil, Srikanth, Anjali and others are playing crucial roles in this political thriller. This movie is expected to hit the screens in 2023.
