Rajinikanth, Akshay pair up for the first time on screen
Director Shankar’s magnum opus, 2.0, is all set to hit theatres in less than a week. The film which has garnered much appreciation and buzz, will witness the union of actors Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar for the first time. After the success of Baahubali series, this would be Karan Johar’s second presentation of a South film in Hindi. While Rajinikanth brings back his character from Shankar’s Robot (2010) back, Akshay Kumar will be seen in a never-seen-before avatar in this film. 2.0 is also being touted to be one of the most expensive films in the history of Indian cinema owing to its extensive VFX and action scenes. The Hindi version of the film will be presented by Karan Johar. 2.0, produced by Subaskaran and Lyca Productions, will release across India in 3D and 2D on November 29.
