Cyclone Vardah, which recently hit Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh has created havoc and affected people from all walks of life. This cyclone has even created havoc on sets of Rajinikanth’s film 2.0.
Reportedly, the sets of this highest budgeted movie of the Indian cinema have been destroyed. A source says that the crew’s plan to film a sequence at an IT park in the city was thwarted owing to the strong winds.
The source further added that, “The team had erected a set at a popular IT park in Ambattur where several films have been shot before. An office of the Artificial Intelligence Research Centre was created there. Even a military vehicle was seen nearby. The shooting happened as per schedule on Sunday, but the crew had to quickly wrap up and evacuate the set on Monday when the wind picked up speed. The storm hit the location, leaving the set partially destroyed. This has forced the team to halt the shooting midway.”
Now, the shoot is expected to resume only after re-erecting these lavish sets. This will affect the movie in terms of the money and time as well.
This movie, which is the sequel to the blockbuster, Endhiran, has the budget of whopping Rs. 400 crores and is being directed by Shankar. It also stars Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain in important roles.
