Famed director AR Murugadoss had in an interview in December last expressed his wish to direct Superstar Rajinikanth in a movie. It looks like his wish is coming true as shooting for the new project with Rajinikanth which is untitled, will begin in March.
It is rumoured that Rajini is taking a pay cut in this movie of Lyca Productions. The reason being given is the box office business of 2.0.
Director Shankar’s 2.0 also produced by Lyca Productions did well to break many records but did not make money for the producers who had shelled out a mammoth amount of Rs 543Cr. Hearing of this Rajini has decided on a pay cut so that Lyca Productions can take a better shot at reaping profits with this flick. Speculations point to Rajini having got Rs 60Cr for 2.0.
The new movie is still in pre production stage and the full cast is just getting finalised. AR Murugadoss has made it clear that the movie is not a political drama as it was rumoured to be.
Rajinikanth is currently busy with his second daughter Soundarya’s wedding, after which he will be free to begin shooting with Murugadoss.
