It’s now confirmed the film will have a grand audio launch in Dubai, followed by a teaser launch in Hyderabad in November. That’s not all though.

Post that we will have the movie finally releasing on 25th January 2018.
2.0, directed by Shankar is the spiritual successor to Enthiran – The Robot. ThaT means while a few characters will return the movie will be based on a brand new plot. Rajinikanth will return as DR Vaseegaran and Robot Chitti but this time joining him is Bollywood star – Akshay Kumar. The film is set to release on Jan 25, 2018. The film is expected to pull off another Bahaubali considering the buzz around this sci-fo actioner.
The 2011 film was titled Enthiran in Tamil and here too, Rajinikanth is going to reprise his role as Chitti and Dr Vaseegaran in 2.0. But this time, Akshay Kumar will be seen in the negative role of Dr. Richard. It has been long time since we saw Akshay in a negative role. And 2017 has already been a wonderful year for him, his two releases, Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha were blockbusters.
