Yo Superstar Fans out there! If the progress of Kabali was what was exciting you all these days, brace yourselves! Chitti is back!!! Yes! Director Shankar has officially announced that the shooting of Enthiran 2.0 will commence today. Staring our very own Thalaivar, Super Star Rajnikanth as the lead, this movie has been posted as the most expensive Indian film. Lyca productions have taken up the responsibility of producing this film (Phewwww! A huuuugggge responsibility indeed! ). While Thalaivar is going to reprise the role of Professor Vaseegaran and of course, the robot Chitti (#ExcitedAboutTheWayTheDismantledChittiIsGoingToBeBroughtBack!!!); Amy Jackson has been roped in to play a robot, paired opposite Chitti. Reports say that another heroine is to be casted as the lead and the crew is on the lookout for a top-notch actress.

The first schedule has been planned to complete the parts not including Thalaivar. A set has been put on the now-obsolete EVP theme park in Chennai for this purpose and Thalaivar will join the rest of the crew in the month of February, after completing the dubbing work of Kabali, which is supposedly on its penultimate step (yayyyyyy!!!).

Cinematographer Nirav Shah will man the camera, while award winning VFX expert Srinivas Mohan, known for his works in Bahubali, will take control of the visual effects. Sean Foot, who did a fantabulous job by converting Vikram from Stud to Savage in the movie I, is said to be a part of the crew.  Maestro A.R.Rahman will join hands with Director Shankar (yet again!) in this movie. Much assertion is out on the move regarding the actor to be cast against Superstar Rajnikanth. The team was scouting for a sought-after Bollywood face, to be cast as the villain, after Arnold Schwarzenegger turned down the role due to some disagreements on the script and also due to the difficulties in paperwork for bringing the Californian Governor here. The latest news is that India’s Jackie Chan, Akshay Kumar has been roped in to play the “baddie”.

As of now, details regarding the commencement only have been let out. We all have to wait “patiently” for the completion of the film. Till then, Happy New Year Folks (Chitti Style)!
