Only a few days ago the title of Rajini’s next was announced and here’s the latest goss about the film
While Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan got delayed again recently, the actor’s next is going with a swift progress. That his film is called Lingaa and Sonakshi Sinha plays the leading lady opposite him in the film is old goss. The latest we heard is that Sonakshi and Rajinikanth have already wrapped the first schedule of Lingaa! Yes, you read that right! The first schedule which was shot in and around Mysore and Mandya in Karnataka was only a 6-day schedule, which included some key portions of Lingaa. Sonakshi took to Twitter to tell her fans that the first schedule of her first Tamil film has been completed. She tweeted, “A beautiful day as i wrap up the first sched for my first Tamil film #Lingaa with an amazing crew that made me feel right at home :)”
Sonakshi has won hearts in Bollywood and looks like the Dabangg babe is all set to do the same down South too. We hear that Sonakshi has already impressed the Thalaiva during the shooting of the first schedule of Lingaa. A source close to the team said, “It is Sonakshi’s debut in the South and we all are quite fascinated, including Rajnikanth Sir, with how she has adapted to the South Movies so quickly! Even though it is a completely foreign language for Sonakshi, she has been pretty quick with the shooting and all the scenes are coming out perfect in the 1st shot itself!”
Directed by KS Ravikumar, Lingaa was officially launched at Chamundi temple in Mysore on May 3 in the presence of its cast and crew and Kannada actor Ambareesh. Apart from Sonakshi Sinha, Anushka Shetty is also a part of Rajinikanth’s next Lingaa. Keep watching this space for more updates!
