Nearly Rs 600 crore spent on ‘2.0’ says Rajinikanth

Vastavam web: The trailer of superstar Rajinikanth’s forthcoming multilingual science-fiction action drama “2.0” was unveiled on Saturday at a grand event here.
“2.0” also stars Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey in important roles. Speaking at the trailer launch, Rajinikanth said the film has been made on a lavish budget of nearly Rs. 600 crore.

“Mark my words, the film will be a super hit. Advance wishes to Shankar and Lyca Productions. Nearly Rs. 600 crore has been spent on the film. The film wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Lyca,” Rajinikanth said. “This is not a Rajinikanth film. The money has been spent on one man Shankar, who has never failed to entertain audiences. This is his vision and I laud Lyca Productions for backing him,” he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Shankar said audience will see Rajinikanth in multiple avatars and it’ll be a treat to watch. “Audiences will see him as scientist Vaseegaran, robot Chitti and 2.0 version of Chitti. There will also be a giant version of Chitti in the climax. We also have another version but we’d like to keep that as a surprise,” he said. “We shot in extremely hot temperature. Rajini sir had to shoot wearing 12 kilo robotic suit. We were stunned by his commitment,” he added.
