Amid huge fanfare and a cine extravaganza, the first look poster of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar from Shankar’s 2.0 was launched on Sunday in Mumbai.
Bollywood top star Salman Khan made a surprise visit at the venue. Speaking at the event, Salman Khan said, “I wasn’t invited. I heard they were doing this and I decided to come to meet Rajni Garu.”
The tag-line of the film says “World is not only for humans” and Akshay Kumar looks are quite ‘out of this world’, so is he an alien in the film? Only the trailer could answer that. Meanwhile, the teaser shot entirely in 3D features Chitti and his action antics.
Bankrolled by Lyca Productions, the film is being made on a lavish budget of Rs 350 crore and will be simultaneously released in Hindi and Telugu, apart from Tamil. Music is by A R Rahman.
Akshay will be playing the main antagonist in the Shankar-directed movie.
“Evil has a new face! #2Point0 #3Diwali2017 #2Point0FLLaunch,” the actor captioned his character poster.
