The movie is fast becoming the most expensive film till date
Director Shankar is a director who believes in making his movies grand. All his movies like Anniyan, Sivaji, Robot, I all had huge budgets. He is not called as the Indian James Cameroon without a reason! Shankar's last Rajini starrer, Robot or Enthiran, was a big movie in every sense of the word. Now, it looks like Robot 2 is going to be bigger and better, not to mention more expensive!
There are reports that there will be long action sequence where the Superstar will face off against the antagonist, Akshay Kumar which will be a major part of the climax. For this scene, a futuristic city like set has been designed where the fight will be shot. But do you know what is the cost of that set? According to DNA, a mind numbing 20 crores! Now that's what is called grand. To give you a little more idea of the extravagance, let us tell you that this set will also be destroyed at the end of the movie to depict a scene of mass destruction. That's 20 crores literally turned to dust!
As for the film itself, the first sequence has been successfully completed and Thalaivar is now busy in Malaysia with Kabali. The next schedule will begin in March and Akshay will finally join the Superstar on the sets.
With such lavish spending and an even more lavish budget, Robot 2 is fast becoming the most expensive Indian film till date.
