Shankar, the Tamil film director, popularly known as the James Cameron of Indian cinema among his fans, is now awaiting the release of his new mega-budget movie '2.0' which is all set to grace the big screens on November 29.
Amid huge expectations, '2.0' which stars Superstar Rajinikanth in the lead role, will have its release in a record number of theatres, and in all probabilities, it may break all the current records prevailing in Indian cinema.
In a recent interaction with media, director Shankar has hinted that he has plans to a make a sequel to '2.0'. The director revealed that he has plans to make '3.0', which will be another movie shot on a grand scale. However, Shankar made it clear that he could not think about the robot franchise without the presence of Rajinikanth as Chitti, a robot loved by all.
Shankar also added that he will not make a sequel just to make another movie on the same franchise. As per Shankar, works of this movie will begin only if a right script knocks on his doorstep.
It should be noted that '2.0' is a sequel to the 2010 blockbuster 'Enthiran' that featured Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles. When it comes to '2.0', Aishwarya Rai is missing in the cast, and the director has replaced Amy Jackson in the role of female lead.
Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar will play the lead antagonist in '2.0', and his onscreen chemistry with Rajinikanth will be undoubtedly the main highlight of this movie.
Apart from Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy, this upcoming movie also stars Kalabhavan Shajon, Sudhanshu Pandey, Riyaz Khan and Adil Hussain in other prominent roles. Music of '2.0' is composed by Academy Award winning musician A R Rahman, while the camera is cranked by Nirav Shah.
The trailer of the film was released recently, and it clearly indicated that the makers have put a lot of efforts to craft the VFX scenes just like any big-budget Hollywood sci-fi flicks. Even though '2.0' is primarily shot in Tamil, it will also have its dubbed releases in Hindi and Telugu along with some foreign languages.
