Lyca Productions, which is producing Super Star Rajinikanth’s film with Shankar Robo 2.0, is one of the top production houses in South Indian cinema. Lyca Productions has some top films in the pipeline which will be rolled out soon.
Raju Mahalingam, the creative head of Lyca Productions, recently met Baahubali director SS Rajamouli and seems to have been floored looking at his modesty and humble nature. Raju Mahalingam posted a picture with Rajamouli and wrote a message about the director. “Met Rajamouli. Realised his humility is bigger than mega success of ‘Baahubali’. Respect sir,” Raju Mahalingam posted on his Twitter page.
Meanwhile, the post-production works on 2.0 is are currently in progress and is slated to be released in January 2018. Raju Mahalingam had recently confirmed this and said, “The film has been shot in 3D, and on a budget of Rs. 400 crore. As of now we have only 1500 3D screens in India as opposed to over 10000 in China. We hope to have more screens converted into 3D and ready for the release of ‘2.0’.”
2.0 will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi simultaneously in January 2018 and will be a worldwide release. With an ensemble cast of Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain, 2.0 is the most watched out for film in Tamil cinema. This will be third time that director Shankar will be teaming up with Super Star Rajinikanth after Shivaji The Boss and the first part of Robo.
