South superstar Kamal Haasan is all set to win the hearts of the audience once again as the Senapathy from Indian in Shankar’s Indian 2. The film is creating quite a buzz, since its announcement. Earlier, there were reports that Ajay Devgn had been approached for a negative role in Indian 2 by Shankar. However, things didn’t work and Ajay turned down Indian 2. Now, Ajay explained the reason behind for opting out of Shankar’s Indian 2.
Singham actor told Mid-day that Shankar wanted to shoot the film immediately, but he had already started working onTaanaji: The Unsung Warrior and due to lack of dates he opted out from the project. Actor also tried to clarify the rumours that suggested that he didn’t do Indian 2 due to a negative role. He said, “For an artiste, there are no shades of grey, black or white - the more layers you have in a role, the better it is. I loved doing movies like Khakee (2004) and Company (2002) where my negative characters were appreciated. I would love to play such roles again. I cannot say if it was grey or not because I am not doing it now; it's somebody else's role."
Indian had starred Kamal Haasan, Manisha Koirala and Urmila Matondkar in the lead roles.
