Disappointing hordes of fans, 2.0, which was supposed to release on Diwali this year, has been pushed to January 2018. While the film is currently in its post-production stage, the makers have released a making video of the film. Going by the video, it looks like the team has worked extra hard for the sequel, which appears to be grandeur than the first part.
The video shows some candid shots of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar on the sets of the film. From the making video, it’s quite clear that the audiences are in for a big surprise. As part of promotions, a 100-foot hot-air balloon adorned with life-sized images of Rajinikanth and actor Akshay Kumar will travel around the world. Earlier in June, the balloon was clicked at Hollywood signage in Los Angeles.
Made on a lavish budget of Rs 400 crore, 2.0 is touted as the costliest Asian film to be ever made. Directed by Shankar, the film stars Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain in important roles. Directed by Shankar, 2.0 is likely to release in over 7000 screens worldwide. Academy Award-winning composer AR Rahman is in charge of the music department.
In the making video, we also get a glimpse of Rajinikanth as Chitti, Akshay Kumar as the evil character, complete with his interesting looks, and AR Rahman on the sets of the film. We see Amy Jackson looking beautiful in front of the camera too, and no, she doesn’t look anything close to a robot. So is she going to be playing two roles as well? We will have to keep the questions in check for now.
