Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar will be seen in upcoming Tamil movie 2.0. The movie is directed by S.Shankar under the Lyca production house, with a historical benchmark in Indian history by coming up with a budget of 400 crores. Ramesh Bala, Indian movie industry tracker, and social media strategist posted today on Twitter about the 3D Digital meet of 2.0 held on 5th July in Chennai. The makers of the film talk about the importance of 3D screens. Also, they compare it with China who has 3000 screens, where in India we have only 1500. Because of the GST issue, Lyca Headquarters have asked us not to sign any films in India for the time being.

The first look of Rajnikanth and the antagonist in the sci-fi action thriller Akshay Kumar was revealed in November on its poster launch in Mumbai.  All the members of the film, Amy are very excited for this project. Music of the film is given by great A. R. Rahman music director. The film is said big budget animated film ever made in India. The first look of Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar was revealed in 3D and it has been reportedly pumped that the producer will invest around Rs.40 crores for its promotions.

Raju Mahalingam, the creative head of Lyca production house said, ‘We are making 2.0 keeping  the global audience in mind.”  VFX designer of 2.0 V Srinivas Mohan, who worked on both Baahubali and Enthiran, says that 2.0 will have the best VFX effects ever.  The makers of the film had said that the events will be done in various parts of the country including teaser, trailer and audio launch in mid of 2017.  However, 2.0 is still not the costliest film in Asia as it was touted to be. China’s forthcoming epic fantasy film, Asura tops the rank with a budget of $100 million that is close to Rs 600 crore.
