The audio launch of Rajinikanth-Shankar film 2.0 is probably the grandest film event this year with the makers going all out to promote and market the film. In a reflection of how big the show is, the makers have revealed a poster that looks equally opulent. Painted in gold, the poster has Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson amid blazing fire with a watchful Akshay Kumar on the top.

The music album of the much-awaited project is being unveiled today in Dubai’s Burj Park. Composed by maestro AR Rahman, the album is said to have three songs out of which two will be unveiled today. The Mozart of Madras will also be performing the songs live with 125 symphony artists. The event will be hosted by RJ Balaji in Tamil, Rana Daggubati in Telugu and the ace director Karan Johar in Hindi.

At the press meet on Thursday, Shankar had also revealed that 2.0 will be set in the same universe as Enthiran but the story is completely new. Terming it a film with a global message, the director had said that Akshay’s character will have several layers. Rajinikanth had also earned several cheers when he explained as to why he is so simple. “Nobody pays me to act in my real life, so I’m simple,” the Superstar said.

Days ahead of the event, Dubai’s most famous building Burj Khalifa was lit up with the faces of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar in preparation for the event. The cost of the audio launch is said to be more than Rs 12 crore, which is more than the budget of several Kollywood films.
