en Bollywood News SCOOP: Kamal Haasan called producers of Indian 2 and Kalki 2898 AD; ensured that both films didn’t clash or release a week apart

Kamal Haasan fans are in for a treat as his much-awaited film Indian 2 will arrive in cinemas on July 12. The excitement for the film is tremendous as the earlier part, released in 1996, was a huge success and has strong recall value. It was one of the first South films to be dubbed in Hindi, which was titled Hindustani. This Hindi version, too, found a lot of takers. As a result, both Indian 2 and its Hindi dubbed version Hindustani 2 have chances to work big time. But this is not the only Kamal Haasan film to be released in this period. Kalki 2898 AD, which releases on June 28, also sees the veteran star in a crucial role. It has come to light that Kamal Haasan ensured that there was a significant gap between the two films.

A source told Bollywood Hungama, “Kamal Haasan is aware that both Indian 2 and Kalki 2898 AD are huge films and he was clear that both films shouldn’t come on the same day or a week apart. He got the producers of both the films together and asked them to make sure that there’s a window between the two films.”

The source continued, “Kalki 2898 AD was earlier supposed to hit screens on May 9. Due to the elections, the makers decided to push the release ahead. After toying with the idea of putting out the film on May 31, they finally settled for June 28. Indian 2 makers, meanwhile, were eying the June 14 slot initially and on May 19, they put all the speculations to rest by announcing that the sequel will release on July 12.”

Kalki 2898 AD also stars Prabhas, Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan. Directed by Nag Ashwin, it is an action entertainer set in the future. Last month, the makers held a grand event in Hyderabad where they introduced the fifth important character of the film – a robotic car named Bujji. On May 31, they released a two-episode animated series on Amazon Prime Video named Bujji & Bhairava, which serves as a prelude to Kalki 2898 AD.
