The audio from Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer 2.0 was launched on Friday evening at Burj Park in Dubai. Two songs from the movie were unveiled after they were allegedly leaked online hours before the album's formal release.
Two-time Oscar Award winner AR Rahman has composed the music for 2.0, while Madhan Karky has penned the songs. The interesting part of the story is that the album has just three songs.
Normally, there are at least five songs and they are always one of the attractions. Hence, it has come as a surprise to the Tamil audience.
According to The Indian Express, the two songs have been composed keeping the core theme of the movie in mind. Endhira Logathu is about the romance between two robots. The lyrics reportedly indicate that it is being shot on Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson.
The second track -- Raajali Nee Gaali -- has some similarities to the first song and it is about the victory of good over evil.
Coming to the audio launch function, Karan Johar hosted the Hindi segment, while Rana Daggubati and RJ Balaji were responsible for the Telugu and Tamil versions, respectively.
The songs have been released on Saavn.com. Click Here to listen to 2.0 songs.
