Ever since Shankar started Bharateeyudu sequel with Kamal Haasan, he has been facing some hurdle. Shankar had created a sensation with the announcement that he will make Bharateeyudu 2 with Kamal Haasan and Telugu producer Dil Raju. However, scared of Shankar’s huge budget, Dil Raju opted out of the project. Lyca Productions joined the project in place of Dil Raju. There was long delay than expected but at last Bharateeyudu was launched.
After completion of the first schedule, it was realized that it has crossed the budget limit and that’s why the shooting was stopped for some days.
Subsequently somehow the shooting started. However, a ghastly accident during the shooting of Bharatyeeudu killed three people. After this accident, producer, director Shankar and Kamal Haasan announced huge compensation for the families of the deceased. Everyday somebody from Lyca producers, Shankar and Kamal Haasan appeared before police. Meanwhile, there is also a cold war between Kamal Haasan and Lyca Productions as there has been a exchange of letters between the two. Kamal’s open letter and Lyca’s reply to this all happened in the presence of media. In the latest development, out of his anger towards Lyca, Kamal Haasan said he will not take part in Baharteeyudu shooting. Because of the open letter, Kamal and Lyca distanced from each other and a cold war started. Speculations have begun in Kollywood media that Kamal Haasan may quit Indian 2.
