Actor Siddharth, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming Tamil film ‘Takkar’, is also part of Kamal Haasan’s ‘Indian 2’. The Shankar directorial project marks Siddharth’s reunion with the filmmaker and the actor says he considers himself blessed to be part of the project.

Reportedly, Siddharth will be seen playing Kamal Haasan character’s grandson. Interestingly, Shankar only launched him in the Tamil film ‘Boys’ in 2003.

In a promotional interview with Sakshi TV, Siddharth said, “I consider it a once-in-a-lifetime film. In whatever language the film gets released in, it’s going to be a blockbuster. To even get a call for this project, I consider myself extremely blessed. To get to work with a director who launched me after all these years and make me act alongside him (Kamal Haasan), it’s something else. I’ll always be thankful to Shankar sir for calling me again.”

He further added, “It is my love for Kamal sir that made me an actor. Every time I get to meet him, I consider myself extremely lucky. Now, to get to work with him means so much to me,."

In ‘Indian’, Kamal Haasan was seen as a freedom fighter turned vigilante called Senapathy, who wants to root out corruption. 

Last year, writer Jeyamohan talked about Kamal Haasan’s commitment on the sets, and said, “Kamal is almost starving himself on the sets of Indian 2. On days when he’s acting, he doesn’t eat anything because if he chews something, it would affect the prosthetic makeup. He was only on a juice diet while acting. I feel bad for him.”

The sequel will reportedly star Kamal Haasan in dual roles, along with Aggarwal and Rakul Preet Singh in crucial roles.
