You cannot imagine less than a grand event to unveil the first look of superstars Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar for India’s costliest film, and this is going to happen soon. Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer ‘2.0’ will have its first look unveiled in Mumbai on 20 November. The producer wants to make it one of the biggest events in Indian cinema.
According to the reports, the production cost of science-fiction film will be Rs 350 crore.
Rajinikanth, who had gone to the US for medical tests, has now joined the final schedule of the film, after a break of four months. Shankar, in a recent tweet, has said that 2.0 is two-thirds complete, in a 150-day shoot schedule.
Directed by Shankar, ‘2.0’ is a sequel to the 2010 blockbuster “Robot”. The sci-fi action-drama features massive action sequences of international standards and set to be released on Diwali 2017.
According to the sound designer of ‘2.0’ Resul Pookutty, “Technically, the action in ‘2.0’ is a high level of achievement. I went to the set and what I saw was amazing. I’ve gone through the narration and the previews. Next year most of my time will be invested in creating ‘2.0’.” He said. “The movie will consolidate the position of Indian films at a time when most of the Hollywood biggies are raking in huge money at the domestic box office.
