A couple of days ago, superstar Rajinikanth was spotted in an international airport when he was on his way to Los Angeles, along with an important member from Lyca Productions, Raju Mahalingam.
It is said that the star actor will undergo a costume trial there in America and might probably meet Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger in order to confirm his participation in Enthiran 2.
Since the official press meet, pertaining to the mega budget project, is expected to happen on December 12th which also marks Rajinikanth's 65th birthday, director Shankar might zero in on his final cast and crew for the movie.
Without a doubt, Enthiran 2 will be India's costliest movie at the time of its release. But how costly will it get is something we have to wait and watch out for.
If Arnold decides to be a part of the movie, the overall budget might easily escalate to new heights. Interestingly, it was recently reported that Lyca Productions is ready to shell out even 300 Crores for the project.
But knowing Shankar and his attachment towards grandiose, it shouldn't come across as a surprise if the final budget of Enthiran 2 falls under the 400 to 450 Crore rupees category.
In fact, Raju Mahalingam had confirmed that Enthiran 2 will be India's biggest film ever. "On the way to Los Angeles with the one and only Superstar for the India's biggest and LYCA's Prestigious film.....", he had posted on his social networking page.
With production company like Lyca joining hands with a film-maker like Shankar, it is only fair to expect the unexpected.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth and the entire team of Kabali will head to Goa once the Sivaji star comes back from the United States of America. The final schedule of shooting will happen in and around Goa, post which Kabali will quickly move into the post production zone.
