Superstar Rajinikanth’s Lingaa shoot started in Mysore early May.
The shoot continued for a few days in and around Mysore, Mandya, Srirangapatnam and few others places in Karnataka.
His leading lady from Mumbai Sonkakshi Sinha joined the first schedule. The scenes involving pre-independence era Rajinikanth was shot by director KS Ravikumar.
Few small Kannada outfits protested the shoot citing Superstar’s speech years ago supporting TN during Cauvery water issue. Now, we are hearing a huge set is being erected in Hyderabad’s Ramoji Film City and the second schedule will start from there on May 26.
As with any big projects in Tamil, huge secrecy surrounds Lingaa and we need to wait for the plans of team Lingaa for subsequent schedules and when the other leading lady Anushka will join etc.
Meanwhile the buzz is that AR Rahman will start composing for the film once he comes back to India, after Million Dollar Arm promotions. Vairamuthu is writing the lyrics for the film.
