Vijay’s forthcoming Diwali release Mersal is the first south Indian film to get an emoji on Twitter. The idea was a hit among fans and the trend has caught on. The latest buzz is that the makers of superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.o and Pawan Kalyan’s next yet-untitled film are also planning to have emoji for promotional activities. While reports from 2.o indicate that the makers are really serious about the idea, the team of Pawan Kalyan’s next project is still contemplating the plan. Official announcement is awaited from both the camps.

Meanwhile, it has also confirmed that the audio launch of Shankar’s Rs 350 crore (now rumoured to have gone up to Rs 400 crore) 2.o will take place on October 27 in Dubai’s Burj park -- a sprawling 11,300 sq meter lawn, located right next to the 160-storeyed Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Apparently, the makers have set aside a whopping budget of Rs 12 crore for the audio launch which will witness a live performance from AR Rahman. The teaser of the film will be unveiled on November 12 in a grand event in Hyderabad. The trailer will be released on the occasion of Rajinikanth’s birthday on December 12 at a special event in Chennai. The last song of the film will be shot from today and the team is hopeful of wrapping the full talkie portion by October 22.

Pawan Kalyan’s film with Trivikram has confirmed to hit the screens for Sankranti festival. The team will soon leave to Europe for a month-long schedule. They were supposed to leave last week but Pawan had to postpone the shoot as his wife Anna was due for delivery and on Tuesday, she gave birth to a baby boy.
