If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan will preside over the audio launch of superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.0, slated to take place this Friday in Dubai, as its chief guest.
Apparently, Shankar and Lyca Productions, the makers of 2.0, want Kamal to attend the event and they’re awaiting his final nod. The event is all set to be organised on a never before seen scale. Rumour has it that a VIP table at the event costs a whopping Rs. 6 lakh and the organizers have already sold out all the tickets.
Tickets for the event were sold out in a few hours as audiences are looking forward to the live performance of A.R Rahman with bated breath. Rahman will perform songs from the album on the occasion for half an hour.
While the film has just one song, a duet featuring Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson, the album is rumoured to have five songs and Rahman will perform all the tracks on Friday at Burj Khalifa where the highly anticipated event will take place.
Rumoured to be made on a budget of over INR 400 crore, 2.0 unites 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 in January 2018.
