Lyca Productions has announced that the Hindi version of their upcoming film, 2.O will be distributed by AA Films. Incidentally, AA Films had distributed the magnum opus Baahubali: The Conclusion.

The shooting of the Rajinikanth starrer was wrapped up last month and the film has gone into the post production mode.

Touted to be a visual extravaganza, the film will have loads of VFX included. Inclusion of graphics will take a lot of time due to which the film’s release is slated for early next year.

Directed by maverick director S Shankar, the magnum opus is produced by Lyca Productions under the banner Lyca Productions.

While ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth plays the lead star in the film, Amy Jackson is paired opposite him for the first time. Bollywood star Akshay Kumar plays the main antagonist in it.

Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, Kalabhavan Shajohn and Riyaz Khan are also included in the cast of this magnum opus.

The sci-fi thriller will be released simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. 2.O has a strong technical crew that includes the Oscar winner AR Rahman composing music, cinematographer Nirav Shah and editor Anthony.

The prequel to 2.O, Endhiran was released on October 1st, 2010. The film turned out to be a huge hit breaking some box office records.

While Shankar had directed the prequel as well, it had Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai sharing the screen space. Danny Denzongpa, Santhanam and Karunas were seen in important roles. AR Rahman had scored the music for this flick as well.

With Rajinikanth, Shankar and AR Rahman teaming up for the sequel and Lyca Productions pumping in a lot of money, expectations on the film are skyrocketing. Reports are that 2.O’s pre-release business could break quite a few records!
