There have been lots of rumours about Simbu acting in Kamal Haasan's next movie Indian 2. Now, the speculations have gone to the next level as there are bits and pieces of information about the role that he is going to play in Shankar's next movie.

Going by the reports, Simbu is not playing the negative role as believed by many, but a top cop in Indian 2. He will have many rounds of clashes with Senapati, the anti-corruption crusader, in the flick.

One might be tempted to believe that the Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa star would be the one who is looking out for an opportunity to nab Senapati in Indian 2 as he had taken the law into his hands to end the corruption in Tamil Nadu.

Nonetheless, Simbu, although has given his nod, is yet to sign the project on the dotted lines.

So far, Nayanthara and Kajal Aggarwal have been reportedly signed to play the female leads. One among the two is likely to pair up with Simbu in the multilingual movie.

The first instalment in the Indian franchise was produced by AM Rathnam, who was interested to fund the sequel initially before dropping the project. Later, Telugu producer Dil Raju came forward to fund the project but backed out of the film for some reasons.

Now, Lyca Productions has taken over the movie.
