It’s been disappointment after disappointment for superstar Rajinikanth’s fans as the highly anticipated magnum opus Shankar’s 2.0, the sequel to Enthiran, has been postponed multiple times.

The latest on the film is that Bollywood singer Kailash Kher has crooned a song in A.R.Rahman's music. Called the 'Bird' song for the Hindi version of the film, it has lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

The singer took to his social networking page and posted a picture with composer AR Rahman: "Recorded a beautiful bird song. Composed by one and only @arrahman for movie #robot2 #chennai #panchathan #musictemple in another super talented #singer #lyricist #amitabhbhattacharya Jadugaro Ka Adda."

The release of the magnum opus rumoured to be made on a lavish budget of Rs. 450 crore has been deferred multiple times owing to high VFX work. Going by the reports doing rounds, the Rajinikanth starrer 2.0 may not release this year and it could hit the screens for Pongal 2019. 2.0 has a bevy of stars including Akshay Kumar playing the baddie with Amy Jackson as the female lead. It also stars Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, Kalabhavan Shajohn and Riyaz Khan. The film will mark the return of Rajinikanth as Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti.

According to the industry grapevine, Akshay Kumar who will be seen as Dr. Richard, will have 12 different looks. He will have multiple shades in the film as an evil scientist. He will be dubbing in his own voice for the Hindi version but he will sound completely different for the Tamil and Telugu versions as a professional dubbing artiste will be engaged. The film’s audio was launched in a grand manner last year in Dubai.

Meanwhile, Rajinikanth has commenced work on his next film with Karthik Subbaraj in Dehradun. Sun Pictures is bankrolling the project on a lavish budget. Anirudh Ravichander has been finalised to compose music for the film.
