Shankar has revealed the look of Rajinikanth's Chitti, the name of the character played by the superstar in their upcoming movie "2.0" aka "Enthiran 2." The director has also announced that 50 percent of the shooting has been completed.
Along with Rajinikanth's photo, he tweeted, "100th day of 2.o shoot. Ufff...finishd 2 major action sequncs including d climax with Superstar n Akshay.Loading 50%, [sic]"
Rajinikanth is seen having a conversation with Shankar in the photo and the superstar looks young in the snap. Rajini will reportedly be seen in two roles of robot Chitti and its creator Dr. Vaseegaran in the forthcoming movie.
Currently, the "2.0" unit is busy shooting key portions in Chennai. Shankar has wrapped up some important sequences of Akshay Kumar in different get ups at Forum Mall in Vadapalani and Pantheon road in Egmore recently. Akki plays the role of Dr. Richard, a gifted scientist, who turns into a crow after a lab experiment goes wrong.
Rajinikanth will be joining the shooting once he returns from his holiday in the U.S.
The movie was launched on Dec. 7 last year with a simple pooja and the shooting was kick-started on Dec. 16. The first schedule was shot at a set erected in the outskirts of Chennai. Since then, it has been filmed in many places, including the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.
The shooting has been completed as per plan and hence, there is a possibility of the movie hitting the screens in April 2017.
Meanwhile, the buzz is that the teaser of "2.0" is likely to be released on Rajinikanth's birthday (Dec. 12). The first look posters might be released for Diwali.
"2.0," which has Amy Jackson in the female lead, is a sequel to 2010 blockbuster "Endhiran â€“ The Robot." The upcoming movie is written and directed by Shankar. Lyca Productions is bankrolling the project, which is being simultaneously made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
