Everything about the Rajinikanth starrer 2.0 is turning out to be impressive and is creating the right buzz. With the expectation meter running high as the filmâ€™s release date inches closer, the industry grapevine is that Akshay Kumar who will be seen as Dr Richard, will be having 12 different looks and will be having multiple shades in the film as an evil scientist. He will be dubbing in his own voice for the Hindi version of the film but he will sound completely different and for its Tamil and Telugu versions, where a professional dubbing artiste will be engaged.
Meanwhile, the makers have released a new poster to ramp up the expectation levels even further. The poster, with a scary set of fingers, appears really haunting, to say the least. The film will mark the return of Rajinikanth as Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti.
2.0, one of the costliest films to be ever made in the history of Indian cinema, is being produced by A Subhashkaran under the banner Lyca Productions. The production house is shelling out close to Rs 450 crores on this sci-fi thriller which has the Superstar Rajinikanth in the lead. The star cast also includes Akshay Kumar playing the baddie with Amy Jackson as the female lead.
The star cast also includes Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, Kalabhavan Shajohn and Riyaz Khan. Sequel to the 2010 blockbuster hit Endhiran, this film is being directed by S Shankar. The shooting of 2.0 has been wrapped up already with the post-production going on at a steady pace. The film is gearing up for release next year.
Oscar winner AR Rahman is composing the tunes for this flick with Nirav Shah handling the camera and Anthony editing it. The audio launch of this film happened in Dubai a few days ago and it was one of the most spectacular events that the film buffs got to see in recent times.
It is believed that the film's trailer will be released on December 12, to commemorate the birthday of Rajinikanth. The film has been made in Tamil and Hindi and plans are afoot to release it in about 15 languages across the globe.
