Superstar Rajinikanth has started shooting for the last schedule of his upcoming magnum opus 2.0, being directed by Shankar.
According to sources, the final schedule of the shooting started from Sunday at ECR and Rajinikanth participated in the shooting from Sunday itself.
2.0 is co-written by B. Jeyamohan and produced by Subaskaran Allirajah, founder of Lyca Productions. A spiritual successor to the 2010 Tamil film Enthiran, the film will feature Rajinikanth reprising the roles of Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti, alongside Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson.
The film will have a simultaneous release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. With an estimated budget of ₹ 360 crore (3.6 billion), it’s the most expensive Indian film till date.
The commercial success of Enthiran (2010) prompted the makers of the film to immediately consider making a sequel and by March 2011, the original film’s cinematographer, Rathnavelu revealed that initial pre-production work on a second part had begun with the same technical team.
While finishing the production of I, Shankar drafted the scripts of three more feature films, including that of a sequel to Enthiran. The shoot started last year.
