The shooting of Lingaa which has Rajinikanth in the lead role is going on in top gear in Andhra Pradesh. The pooja for the film was performed in Mysore.
Rajini had planned to shoot the entire film in and around Mysore. Rajini’s friend and Kannada actor Ambareesh had made the necessary arrangements.
Within a couple days some Kannada organizations started protesting against Rajini. Hence the shooting was cancelled and the venue was changed to Andhra Pradesh.
Now the shooting of the Lingaa is going in rapid pace in Andhra Pradesh without any hurdles. Within few days, the cast and crew will be giving a break to the shooting and return to Chennai.
Back in Chennai, the crew will be editing the portions that have already been shot. After viewing the rushes, Rajini will decide about the next schedule shooting. Rajini is firm in releasing the film on his 12th December which happens to be his birthday.
