At last, the countdown is all set to end and ‘2.0’ will witness bumper openings across the country on Thursday (November 29). The film’s protagonist superstar Rajinikanth, director Shankar and antagonist Akshay Kumar are all excited about the movie.
In an event to promote the film in Hyderabad, Rajini said, “After my debut film, ‘Apoorva Raagangal’, I am excited and nervous about ‘2.0’ because, in this film, almost 40-45% is filled with visual effects and being an actor, I’m eagerly looking forward to watching my own work”.
2.0 will be a pride of Indian cinema. The film has a strong storyline and technically, we have created a new standard, he added.
In his address, Shankar said: “In the hot climatic conditions, Rajinikanth sir had to wear the bodysuit and despite his health condition, he pulled it off only to help the producer who would have lost a lot of money if the shoot got postponed”.
“Akshay Kumar is a very disciplined and dedicated actor. Every day, it would take minimum three hours for his makeup but he never worried about it. Similarly, AR Rahman took six months for the background score of the film and the re-recording output looks as amazing as Batman and Spiderman,” he added.
Akshay said, “Acting in ‘2.0’ was going to a school and I learned new things. If ‘2.0’ sets is a school, Shankar sir is my principal. Trust me, I have been in the industry for 28 years, but things which I learned in ‘2.0’ was never taught to me before.”
