The first look of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar's 2.o surprised one and all. And while the film has been in complete and is in the post-production phase, the makers have decided to add another special song shoot. And what better place to shoot the song than Lucknow. The city has emerged as a favourite destination for movie shoots these days coz of the culturally rich background and the government's shoot-friendly policies. The team of 2.o including Akshay and Amy Jackson will shoot for the song in Lucknow during the first week of February. However, it isn't clear whether Rajinikanth will be a part of the song or not.
Confirming the news that a song will be shot in Lucknow, Gaurav Dwivedi (Vice President of Uttar Pradesh Film Development Council) said, "We are delighted that legendary superstar Rajinikanth's film will be shot in Lucknow. We will extend full support and provide all necessary logistics to his team. We take pride in the fact that the visionary film policy of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has attracted even South Indian filmmakers." ALSO READ - Rajinikanth's 2.O set damaged by cyclone Vardah
