Sensational filmmaker Shankar is currently busy filming the movie Bharateeyudu 2. The film is apparently the sequel to the super hit movie Bharateeyudu. The makers initially considered Ajay Devgan as the villain for the movie but he is said to have walked away from the project citing his prior commitments. Later, they wanted Akshay Kumar on board but it is also said to be not happening because of certain reasons.
Now, the director is planning to rope in Abhishek Bachchan to play the particular character. Abhishek is planning to venture in South India with a solid character and he believes that the Kamal Haasan's movie might give him the right attention in South cinema.
The film also has Kajal Aggarwal, Delhi Ganesh and others in the key roles. Anirudh Ravichander is composing the music. The film is produced under Lyca Productions banner.
