Rajinikanth’s Lingaa climax to be shot in Shimoga?

Rumour has it that the makers are erecting a huge Shiva statue for the film’s pivotal scene

Where there is Rajinikanth, there has to be a fan frenzy. It’s no brainer that a superstar Rajinikanth is busy shooting for KS Ravikumar’s Lingaa along with Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty at Hyderabad. While the producers are trying to keep the film’s schedule in tight wraps, a little birdie has chirped to us that Lingaa‘s climax would be shot at Shimoga in Karnataka.

A source revealed that film’s climax would be  shot at Shimoga where a giant statue of Lord Shiva would be erected along with sets of the dam. Rumours are rife that Thalaiva will be playing the chief engineer of controversial Mullaiperiyar dam. Producer Rockline Venkatesh has been tight lipped about the shooting schedules in order to avoid unexpected fan frenzy at the sets as it happened in Mysore.

With the shooting in full swing, the music release of Lingaa is slated for this Diwali and the film will release on Kochadaiiyaan star’s birthday. Like in Mysore, will Rajini mania catch the residents of Shimoga too? We bet the makers are going to have tough time fending off crazy fans who would throng to catch the glimpse of their favourite star in action.
