The first part of the climax portion was shot at the Siruseri IT Expressway last week and Rajinikanth attended the shoot. Some scenes have been shot at the SIPCOT industrial estate in Sirucheri. A Volvo bus hired from Parveen travels has been used as a satellite remote sensing lab.
The set which has been put up by art director Sabu Cyril at a cost of nearly 50 lakhs is smashed to smithereens as the Robot takes on the impostors. Coming weeks Shankar and his crew will be moving to Prasad Studio where a huge set has been put up where a fight scene will be picturised as the whole place will go up in flames.
It will be for the first time in Indian cinema where advanced fire fighting technique methods will be used. After this schedule, Shankar may take 6 -7 months to complete the CG works. The director has also planned a mini schedule to shoot the patch up scenes with the lead pair.
