With Superstar Rajinikanth fans still hitting the replay button of the making video launched on Saturday, they have some more exciting news in store for them. The latest is that 2.0’s audio launch will happen in Dubai at an extravagant event on October 27. A reliable source confirmed the date, also adding that the budget for the event would be more than Rs 15 crores. The sequel of the 2014 film Endhiran will have music scored by AR Rahman again. One of the most opulent projects in Indian cinema right now, 2.0 is helmed by master of grandeur Shankar. It will see Thalaivar reprise his role of Dr.Vaseegaran and the robot Chitti.
2.0 will mark the Kollywood debut of Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who by the looks of it is playing an alien in the film. The project also has Amy Jackson on board. The project is, reportedly, made at a cost of Rs 400 crores, making it one of Asia’s costliest ventures. 2.0 is also being filmed using 3D cameras directly to ensure that the film provides a grand visual experience. What 2.0 aspires to do is try to inspire more creators to engage with the medium, said Shankar in the making video released by the makers.
