Rajinikanth’s much awaited ‘2.0’, the sequel to his 2010 film ‘Enthiran’, is reportedly being delayed, as the company in charge of the VFX has not completed it, and has lead the film’s VFX scenes to be sent to ten different VFX companies.
Asian Age reports an source saying, “The VFX delivery has been gravely defaulted by a U.S. company that took on the task of doing the entire special effects of our film. So, we had to pull out 1,000 shots from the film and send them off to 10 different VFX companies, a 100 shots each! This meant a great deal of criminal delay. In fact, I’ll tell the truth, they’ve cheated us, and we’re now planning to take legal action against them. It’s fraud pulled on us deliberately. Our producers Lyca, are considering serious legal actions. It’s shocking that such a huge VFX company in the U.S., which has won Oscars for its work, pulled such an swindle on a relatively small Indian production house like ours, trying to excel in VFX. It feels like a sabotage. When we worked on the rushes, we realized they hadn’t even done 50 percent of our work. Now, we’re all working overtime to meet our new release deadline.”
‘2.0’ also stars Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson.
