The much-hyped Rajinikanth starrer film has been titled as "2.0" and also it is referred as "Enthiran 2" or "Endhiran 2". The film took off on Wednesday, 16 December, in a simple function. And, one of the looks of the Tamil superstar has also been revealed at the occasion.
The makers have revealed a few photos of the cast and crew in which people can get a glimpse of Rajinikanth's look. The superstar, who had sported an Oakley beard for the role of scientist Vaseegaran in the first instalment, seems to be continuing the same look inn "2.0".
Rajini looks stylish and as young as ever in the photos that are being circulated on internet. It also confirms that the latest film is the continuation of "Enthiran"
However, the other interesting development that has taken place is that Arnold Schwarzenegger has opted out of "2.0" and Bollywood star actor Akshay Kumar has been roped in to replace him. He is reportedly playing the role of an antagonist.
Amy Jackson, who worked with Shankar's previous movie "I", is playing the female lead role in the film. She is also playing the role of a villain in the multilingual project.
