Meanwhile, the Hollywood actor who was originally scheduled to play the antagonist has opted out of the film due to remuneration issues. The team is now looking for a suitable actor for the role. Actor Hrithik Roshan, Jackie Chan and Neil Nitin Mukesh’s names are currently being considered, according to sources. Even as the production team scouts for a leading heroine, reports suggest that Amy Jackson could play a robot in Enthiran 2.
Jointly produced by Lyca Productions and Ayngaran International, Enthiran 2‘s technical crew includes cinematographer Nirav Shah and editor Anthony. The script of the film was drafted by Shankar and writer Jeyamohan.
