The movie 2.0 serves as a spiritual successor to Enthiran (2010) and S Shankar has co-written the script with B Jeyamohan for the movie, which has been produced by A Subaskaran under the banner Lyca Productions. The flick has been made with an estimated budget of Rs 543 crore and it is the most expensive Indian film made to date.

The makers of 2.0 have kept the details about its story under wrap. But if we are to go by the reports, Dr Vaseegaran is settled in a foreign country after dismantling robot Chitti. But he reassembles his robot Chitti, when a deadly evil poses a huge threat. How he fights the monster to save the world forms the crux of the world.

Rajinikanth is playing the roles of Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti, which he reprised in the first instalment. Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar is seen as a deadly evil, while Amy Jackson plays the female lead in 2.0. Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, Kalabhavan Shajohn and Riyaz Khan are seen in the supporting cast of the movie, which has AR Rahman's music and Nirav Shah's cinematography.
