The trailer of Shankar's magnum opus, 2.0, starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, is likely to be released on November 3. The teaser of this film, that released a few weeks ago, has upped the expectation levels for the trailer.

Director Shankar had completed the shooting of this film several months ago and the post-production has been happening for nearly a year now. With a huge amount of graphics work to be included in 2.0, its release was postponed on several occasions in the past. The film is getting ready to hit the marquee on November 29 and the team is working towards meeting this deadline.
