Director Shankar is busy wielding the megaphone for the magnum opus, 2.0. Being a sequel to Endhiran, expectations are high over this project, which is being made on a huge budget, financed by Lyca Productions.
Here are some interesting details about 2.0 that movie buffs will be amazed to know! Yes, it is evident that a lot of effort and homework has gone into this project.
Even before going on to the floors, Shankar had pre-visualised the entire film in 3D animation. This has been done so perfectly that it was edited with the final run-time locked at 135 minutes.
Also, at the manufacturing division of Legacy Effects, the ace filmmaker had animatronic robots assembled by experts. This is the place where his vision was conceived and brought to reality.
Apart from his busy shooting schedules for 2.0, the director also had regular video conferencing sessions with the computer graphics team. This enabled Shankar to see the work that has gone into the project, comment and make improvements.
All this proves that Shankar is a thorough perfectionist and is sure to come up with the best output to satisfy movie buffs!
2.0 stars Rajinikanth in the lead role with Amy Jackson playing his love-interest. Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is the main villain in the movie. Shankarâ€™s most favoured music director, AR Rahman is composing music for this venture.
