Bharateeyudu 2, a sequel to the iconic hit, Bharateeyudu was announced the last year with Kamal Haasan, Shankar, and Dil Raju. The Senior Telugu Producer was supposed to be bankrolling it in all the languages. But then, Dil Raju had decided to put off the project after unreasonable remuneration and royalty demands. Kamal and Shankar will take forward the project with Lyca Productions, the Production House of 2.0 and the film will go on floors after the release of 2.0.
Shankar has roped in Anirudh Ravichander to score music for the film. This will be Anirudh’s first film with Shankar. This film is likely to be shot in Hyderabad. A set might be erected in Ramoji Film City for the same. Bharateeyudu Starring Universal Hero Kamal Haasan and directed by Sensational Director Shankar released in 1996 and went on to become a blockbuster. It can be termed as one of the Classics of the 90s. Shankar has in mind a line with a contemporary touch for this project and will be developing the complete script after the release of 2.0. Jeyamohan, Kabilan Vairamuthu, and Lakshmi Saravanakumar are jointly penning the dialogues for this prestigious sequel project. More Details of this project are awaited.
