I am not the hero in 2.0 : Rajinikanth
The first look poster of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar from Shankar’s magnum opus 2.0 was launched in Mumbai today.
There were separate posters for both Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar. Akshay Kumar was seen in an evil get up with a bird like make up. Rajinikanth’s look was same as the Chitti get up in Enthiran. Another poster had both Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar face to face.
2.0 is the sequel to the all time blockbuster Enthiran released in 2010. Enthiran is said to be the most expensive project ever in Indian cinema beating SS Rajamoul’s epic war drama Baahubali. 2.0 is said to be made at a massive budget of Rs. 350 crore.
The event was held in Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai and was attended by stalwarts from many film industries. Salman Khan who came for the launch, said he was not invited but he came because he knew Rajinikanth was attending the launch.
The film stars Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson playing the lead roles and Akshay Kumar playing the antagonist as a crazy doctor. Oscar-winning music director A R Rahman is composing music for the movie.
Hollywood stunt choreographer Kenny Bates known for his works in action-oriented movies like Pearl Harbour, Transformers and Die Hard is also working in 2.0
Amy Jackson has ealier worked with Shankar in the Vikram starrer I which was released last year. This is the first time she is working with Rajinikanth and she was all excited about the project.
AR Rahman, during the launch said 2.0 is the toughest film he has ever done. Director Shankar was not happy with his scores, so Rahaman said he is striving hard to create something unique for India and the world.
Rajinikanth also funnily said that it is very hard to work with Shankar who is a perfectionist. That is why he is one of the biggest directors in the country, whose every new movie is eagerly awaited by the audience. Rajinikanth added that the real hero is Akshay Kumar.
The event hosted by Karan Johar which was also streamed live in Youtube through the Lyca Productions official channel.
2.0 is written by Shankar and Jeyamohan. Lyca Productions are finding this big budget movie.
