The wait for director Shankar’s magnum opus, 2.0, is finally over. The film, starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, is one of the most awaited movies of the year, and is all set to hit the theatres today. The film is a sequel to the 2010 sci-fi hit Robot, which had Rajinikanth playing the title character, and is said to be the most expensive Indian film till date. The trailer of 2.0 has got immense appreciation from the industry and the audiences. With this film, viewers will get to witness a face-off between Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar. This is the first time that these two stars will share the screen. While Rajini will be seen as Chitti again, Akshay will be seen in a new avatar. Oscar-winning maestro AR Rahman has scored the film soundtrack and he has teamed up with Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty — that’s a combination to look out for. The film is high on VFX, with some never-seen-before action. The Hindi version will be presented by Karan Johar. 2.0, produced by Subaskaran and Lyca Productions, will release across India today in 3D and 2D.
