It was reported that director Shankar has roped in Priya Bhavani Shankar and Aishwarya Rajesh to play pivotal roles in the film. Now, it looks like there’s a new addition to the cast of Indian 2.

According to a report, Rakul has agreed to be part of Indian 2 but is yet to sign on the dotted lines. Also, she will be seen as Siddharth’s love interest in the film. It is indeed Rakul’s luck that she is cast in director Shankar’s film early in her career. She would be playing the love interest of Siddharth who is the grandson of the vigilante Senapathi and son of Chandru, both characters played by Kamal in the original version.
