It has already been reported that superstar Rajinikanth starrer magnum opus 2.0 will have only one song and the makers are currently filming it in AR Rahman's studio in Chennai. It's said to be a duet number with Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson, who will be seen playing robots.
Apparently, the makers are spending a whopping Rs 18 crore on the song to give audiences a never-before seen experience. Since it's a duet involving two robots, a special world has been created to make the overall experience believable. This will be the lone song in the film.
The film is being rumoured to be made on a budget of over Rs 400 crore, and it reunited Shankar and Rajinikanth for the third time. Although most of the talkie portion has already been completed, the makers postponed the release to ensure high-quality VFX output. Over 15 studios from across the globe are simultaneously working on different portions of the film. Also starring Akshay Kumar as the antagonist, apart from Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey, the film will be released in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
Slated to hit the screens on January 26, the team is working round the clock to ensure there's no further delay in the release. The film has already fetched pre-release business worth Rs 200 crore from satellite rights, which was bagged by Zee Network for Rs 110 crore and the rest from audio rights across the languages. The highly anticipated audio launch will take place on October 27 in Dubai and the makers are planning to spend around Rs 8 crore on the occasion.
