‘Enthiran 2’ to be Rajinikanth’s Last?
As Rajinikanth gave the nod to the highly anticipated sequel to S. Shankar’s ‘Enthiran’, it is said that the king of Tamil cinema also directed the filmmaker to give him a grand farewell. According to sources, Rajini has told Shankar that ‘Enthiran 2’ will be his last project and he wants it to be a huge hit. The Sivaji star was recently seen in ‘Kochadaiyaan’ and ‘Lingaa’, which tanked at the box office.
Thalaivar said that he did ‘Kochadaiyaan’ for the sake of his daughter. After its disappointing outcome, the superstar did ‘Lingaa’, which also couldn’t meet the expectations of the audience. ‘Enthiran 2’ is supposedly a three-year project, which involves a huge budget of Rs. 300 crore and a Bollywood celebrity as the villain. Rajini wants to leave a mark on Indian cinema with Enthiran 2 and the untitled Rajini-Ranjith film.
The sequel to the 2010 box office success will bring together 27 assistant directors and 10 executive producers. Director Shankar has been vigorously undertaking the pre-production work. The film is expected to go on the floors in 2016 and hit the theatres in 2017.
Rajinikanth entered the Indian film industry in 1975 with Apoorva Raagangal and has acted in several Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi projects. He wants to leave a prominent mark on Indian cinema with the last two films of his career. Ranjith, who is known for his realistic approach, will add another feather to the versatile actor’s cap with their upcoming yet-to-be-titled project. Also, Enthiran 2 is expected to be a major player at the box office. We wish that these films leave an unforgettable impression, and ensure the sustainability of Rajinikanth’s superhero legacy.
