Filmmaker Shankar says that about 25 percent of his upcoming Tamil magnum opus I, which features Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead roles, was shot in China.
"About 25 percent of the film was shot in China. We shot some action sequences and a song under very extreme climatic conditions," Shankar said in the making video of I.
"For the stunt sequences, we hired the best in the business from China. The action you see is the combination of Chinese martial arts and international style fighting," he said.
The film, which has been on floors for over two years, is slated to release Diwali.
Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman has scored tunes for I, which is reportedly made on a budget of Rs 150 crore, and produced by Aascar Films.
