Much to the excitement of Rajinikanth and Enthiran fans, Shankar’s 2.0 team has made the announcement that the film’s 3D teaser will be out on September 13. A new poster featuring a giant bird’s claw shattering glass has also been released along with this announcement.
The makers had announced in July that the long delayed film with the Superstar and Akshay Kumar in the lead would hit the screens on November 29 this year. While the shooting had reportedly concluded in October last year, there was a delay on account of post production work. Over 15 studios from across the globe are simultaneously working on different portions of the film.

Directed by Shankar, 2.0 stars Rajinikanth in the lead role with Amy Jackson playing his pair. Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is playing the main villain in this sci-fi thriller. Being the sequel to the 2010 hit film, Enthiran, 2.0 will have the Superstar in dual roles – Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti – the Robot. Others in the cast include Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain and Kalabhavan Shajohn.
Speaking at a press even earlier this year, Rajinikanth had praised director Shankar, saying, “2.0 would be a talked-about film in Indian cinema. How the SS Vasan directed Chandralekha, which was released in 1944, turned out to be a blockbuster, 2.0 will have the same kind of reach and talk. It is all because of the content.”
Director Shankar is currently on the pre-production work for his next with Kamal Haasan. Indian 2, which is the sequel to his 1996 hit movie Indian will commence soon after Kamal Haasan is done with the hosting of the television reality show, Bigg Boss season two. The director had been hunting for locations for shooting the film and was recently in Proddatur in Kadapa, Andhra for the purpose.
