Actor Rajinikanth’s Lingaa began today with a simple pooja at a temple in Mysore today. Clad in a traditional white dhoti, the Superstar looked incredibly young despite his sixty odd years. Also present were Producer Rockline Venkatesh, Director KS Ravikumar, Actors Ambareesh, Sumalatha and selected crew members. Actresses Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty were conspicuous by their absence but it is expected that they will be joining the shooting soon. Oscar winner AR Rahman is composing the music for this mega budget movie while Ratnavelu handles the camera.
