In the prequel, Indian, Kamal Haasan played dual roles in the story – one a patriotic older man and other a corrupt cop. The story of India revolved around eradicating corruption from the system in India which falls in line with Kamal Haasan’s political agenda. It is also being reported that Indian 2 will also have Kamal Haasan playing dual roles and the story might have a similar premise.
