Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar scenes 2.0
It was slated to start shooting in early December, but finally filmmaker Shankar’s next, 2.0, starring Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson has gone on floors. The sci-fi thriller, which is a sequel to his 2010 film, Enthiran (Robot), which starred Rajiniknath and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, was postponed several times due to the death of TN Chief Minister J Jayalalitha and the heavy rains which caused havoc on the sets.
The film’s executive producer, Pappu Shankar, told a tabloid, “The delay was primarily because of the December rains that destroyed the sets. Then came Christmas and New Year. The film’s crew, which comprises Western technicians for special effects, had to leave for the holidays.”
Pappu adds since shooting for a film with special effects is time consuming, the team decided to postpone the schedule to January 17. However, that too didn’t work as there were protests in the city for Jalikattu, which found support from Tamil celebs, including Rajinikanth. 2.0 finally rolled on Tuesday with Rajinikanth and Amy.
