Enthiran 2.0: Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar to fight it out at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium
Some important portions of superstar Rajinikanth-starrer Tamil actioner 2.0, a sequel to the blockbuster Enthiran, will be shot at the popular Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in Chennai from Thursday.
“Some high-octane action sequences will be shot in this schedule, which will last for over a month. Some key portions will be shot at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium and the rest will be shot in and around the city,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
These action sequences will feature Rajinikanth and the film’s antagonist Akshay Kumar, and will be shot at a section of the stadium, which is also hosting the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2016.
“The team has erected massive and expensive sets to shoot this action portion,” the source added.
Directed by Shankar, the film also stars Amy Jackson. While double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman is composing tunes, popular cinematographer Nirav Shah is cranking the camera.
The project, which is being shot in 3D, is bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
