Chitti 2.0 and 3.0 might have been dismantled after the film got over, but the makers have now made it possible for fans to have a look at the models and props used in the making of Rajinikanthâ€™s 2.0 in real life.
You can now see the original statues, mannequins, costumes, suits, masks, robot models and prosthetic used in the making of the movie at a special hall set up inside the Chennai Trade Fair on Island Grounds.
While the ground remains a favourite haunt for many in the city and from outside, the exhibit sure is bound to receive a number of visitors, especially since itâ€™s the holiday season.
2.0, directed by Shankar, was a sequel to his hit film Enthiran. The film starred Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in lead roles and was appreciated for its special effects.
The film released after several delays owing to high-level graphics. The film made over 150 crores in just two days.
2.0, which was released in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu, had the widest release for an Indian film in 10,500 screens. The movie marked the return of Rajinikanth as scientist Vaseegaran and Chitti robot. He was also seen playing the titular character 2.0, the reloaded version of Chitti.
Akshay Kumar, who debuted in the role of an antagonist in southern cinema, was seen playing an ornithologist who loses his fight to telecom companies while trying to save birds from the emission of mobile towers. He then uses the "fifth force" to wreak havoc and take revenge. The film also features Amy Jackson as Nila, a humanoid robot who works as an assistant to Vaseegaran.
During an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, when Shankar was asked if fans can expect 3.0, he had said, â€śWe definitely plan to make 3.0 but I canâ€™t think of this franchise without Rajini sir. Heâ€™s the only name that comes to my mind when I think of Chitti.â€ť
