“Akshay landed in the city earlier today. He’s expected to start filming from Monday, and will shoot non-stop for the next few weeks,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
The film, in which Akshay will be seen as the antagonist, marks his debut in Tamil filmdom.
“In this schedule, a high-octane action sequence between Akshay and Rajinikanth will be shot. For the first two days, director Shankar is going to shoot dummy video footage with local stuntmen and once the VFX team delivers the rough output, the action sequence will be shot with Rajinikanth and Akshay,” the source added.
Produced Lyca Productions, the film also stars Amy Jackson.
“2.o” is the sequel to Rajinikanth’s smash blockbuster “Enthiran”. It has music by double Oscar-winning composer A.R Rahman.
