Since the time of Chandramukhi, superstar Rajinikanth has always started shooting for his films in Ramoji Film City.
While the film's shooting begins in Hyderabad, it is then shifted to Chennai and other parts of India depending on the script. However, this time, Rajinikanth will no longer go by his sentiments.
Sources close to the unit say director Pa Ranjith is planning a long schedule in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, where 50 per cent of the movie will be completed as the movie is set in the backdrop of the mafia world.
Rajnikanth will play the role of a mafia don, that has been inspired by the character played by Jack Nicholson in Departed.
Though the unit was in Hyderabad, they shot here for a very brief period and no major schedule has been been planned here.
However, Rajinikanth will be shooting in Hyderabad for Shanker's magnum opus Robot 2 next year. News is that he will return to spend almost an year shooting for Robot 2 in the city.
