Superstar Rajinikanth and Sensational Director Shankar’s 2.0 which was earlier planned for Diwali release is pushed to 25th, January 2018 as Republic Day weekend Special. The movie shooting is nearing completion but then, the post- production works will go on till completion. On the other side, the team is planning the promotions in a big way.
The audio launch event of the movie will happen in Dubai and the guests’ list will be stunning, to say the least. The event is likely to happen in October, our sources say. This is the first time British beauty Amy Jackson is romancing the Superstar. Oscar Awardee AR Rahman is composing music for the film. He scored music for Robot as well.
We all know that Robot back then created a sensation of sort bringing huge profits to the Telugu Version buyer and so the race for the Telugu Rights of 2.0 is very intense. Offers as much as Rs.50 Crore are there. Bollywood Star Hero Akshay Kumar is playing a baddie in the film and the film marks his Southern debut. Buzz is that Rajinikanth will be seen in a Triple role in the film even though it is not officially confirmed.
Given the massive success of Baahubali 2, the makers of 2.0 have a lot of expectations to meet in terms of VFX output and box office records. 2.0 is being made at the budget of more than Rs 400 crore, which is twice the cost of Baahubali 2. It is also said to have far more sophisticated visual effects than the mythological blockbuster. Usually, films are shot using 2D cameras and converted into 3D in the studios. But, the filmmakers of 2.0 have used 3D cameras, which is a first in India. 2.0 is expected to be a game changer.
