It is reported that incessant monsoon rains, which have not only hugely affected people’s routine life along the coastal Districts of the State but also have resulted in loss of human life and properties, have forced makers of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Enthiran 2 from making a formal announcement about the launch of the film.
Shankar, who made blockbuster hits with Rajini in Sivaji: The Boss and Enthiran: The Robot, is planning to make a sequel to Enthiran and has already started the pre-production work in connection with the sequel.
Though the making of the sequel is confirmed now, fans of Rajini and movie-goers have been on the look-out for a formal announcement by the makers.
Rajini, who had been shooting for his upcoming film Kabali (directed by Pa. Ranjith) in Malaysia and Thailand, had taken a small break from the shoot of the film to leave for U.S. where he is presently undergoing make-up and other physical tests in Shankar’s presence to find out whether his body could withstand the physical requirements of the character he would be essaying in the sequel. Rajini and Shankar are in Los Angeles for these tests.
In the meantime, Rajini would be turning 66 on 12th December (Saturday) and his fans were hoping for a formal announcement about the sequel to be made on that day.
The non-stop rains and the suffering of the people of Chennai and other Districts is said to have forced the announcement which would now be made on 18th December. By a rough estimate, Enthiran 2 is likely to be produced at a cost of Rs.250-300 crores.
