Rajinikanth is done with the shooting of the magnum opus 2.0 which is being directed by Shankar and it has gone into the post-production mode. The film will be hitting the marquee in January next year. Meanwhile, the Superstar is getting ready to hop on to the sets of his upcoming film to be directed by Pa Ranjith. In fact, Ranjith and Rajini collaborated for Kabali and this will be their second film together.
According to latest reports, Pa Ranjith will be hiring the VFX team Makuta headed by Peter Draper for the graphics work in the movie. This team had worked on Baahubali’s VFX. Apparently, the director wants to portray the slums of Dharavi in Mumbai very realistically and add grandeur to the project for which he decided to opt for the VFX team.
Baahubali is one of the most extravagant films to be made in the history of Indian cinema and the graphic works in the movie turned out to be the talk of the town. The makers of several big budget movies now want to rope in this particular VFX team to bring their project to life, say sources.
Rajinkanth’s film with Ranjith hasn’t been titled yet but reports say that it is a gangster flick. Recently, gangster Haji Mastan’s son threatened to initiate legal action against the makers of the film if his father was shown in bad light and the producers came out with an explanation that their venture has nothing to do with the gangster.
Starring Rajinikanth in the titular role, the film is being produced by his son-in-law Dhanush under their home banner Wunderbar Films. Santhosh Narayanan will be composing music for this film. Reports have it that the team will go in for shooting later this month and the pre-production work is happening in full swing.
