Despite several delays, 2.0 is constantly in the news for one reason or the other. The film is expected to release on November 29 and has a huge star cast, including Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson, and Akshay Kumar.
Now, footage from a BBC video on the behind-the-scenes of the film is doing the rounds on social media. The video is focused on Amy Jackson and shows how the actor learnt her dance moves for the film. One can also see Shankar and Rajinikanth on the sets.
Calling 2.0 one of the first Indian films to be shot using 3D cameras, the video captures the shoot of a song interspersed with brief interviews with Hollywood technicians. Ray Hannisian, a 3D stereographer, can be heard saying, "I don't want to disparage Hollywood, but I'm having more fun over here than I ever did there." He also goes on to add that this was a dream come true after 50 years, noting that these cameras were the most precise he'd worked with.
Choreographer Bosco and Amy share a light moment as the actor credits him for her performance on the dance floor. Amy is all praise for Indian cinema in the video. "Here, everything is possible," she says. Though Rajinikanth doesn't speak in the video, one can see him in costume, doing his trademark walk.
What has also thrilled fans is the brief VFX towards the end of the video, which shows something like a whale's tail forming in the air. 2.0 has been delayed several times because of the heavy VFX work involved but the footage revealed so far promises that the film will be well worth the wait. Previously, the teaser of the film was leaked during a screening at the birthday celebrations of Lyca's chairperson K Subaskaran.
