Now that the official announcement on the shoot of Bharateeyudu 2 is going to happen very soon, the makers are finalizing the key cast and crew for the movie. Already Kajal Aggarwal is on board to play the female lead role in the movie. The buzz is that Siddarth is also going to be a part of the project and Simbhu was earlier considered for the role.
Now, we have an update that the director Shankar has opted for Akshay Kumar again for playing the negative role in the movie. Akshay Kumar earlier played the villain in the film 2.O. Shankar initially wanted Ajay Devgan to be seen as the villain in Bharateeyudu 2 but due to several reasons, Ajay Devgan backed out of the project even though he liked the script.
As a result, Shankar approached Akshay Kumar again who readily came on board to be the baddie for Kamal Haasan.
