Actress Amy Jackson, who has rejoined the sets of superstar Rajinikanth’s Tamil science-fiction action drama 2.o after a brief hiatus, will be shooting for some action sequences from Monday here.
“She joined the sets back on Saturday. In the latest schedule, the makers will shoot some action scenes featuring Amy Jackson and Rajinikanth. One of the most important portions of the film will be shot in the following weeks,” a source told IANS.
An elated Amy shared the news on her twitter page, “Landed up in Chennai! Shooting my action packed scenes for @shankarshanmugh Robot 2.0.” Being helmed by S. Shankar, the film also stars Akshay Kumar as the antagonist, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain.
Tipped to be produced on a budget of Rs 350 crore, the film which is being bankrolled by Lyca Productions, will hit the screens in the summer of 2017. Double Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman is composing the film’s tunes.
It was earlier reported that Dhanush’s next production venture featuring superstar Rajinikanth will reportedly be a sequel to Tamil action-drama Kabali, according to a well-placed source.
Dhanush shared on his Twitter page that he will be collaborating with Kabali director Pa Ranjith and Rajinikanth on a new project. “It’s going to be Kabali 2. Dhanush has taken permission from producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu to continue ‘Kabali’ franchise with the second part. The project, however, will only materialise next year, after the release of ‘2.o’ in the summer,” a source close to Dhanush told.
Dhanush, known for producing films such as Kaaka Muttai and Visaaranai, will bankroll the project under Wunderbar Films.
