The makers of the highly anticipated movie 2.0, staring Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, has unveiled the first look of actress Amy Jackson on Twitter. Although the release of the sequel to Enthiraan has been pushed to next year, the entire world was eagerly waiting to get a glimpse of the film by ace director Shankar Shanmugham.
Amy Jackson is playing the female lead in the multilingual film 2.0. The film-goers were quite excited to know the details of her role and look in the movie. On Wednesday, Shankar took to his Twitter account to give a glance of how the actress is going to look in Rajinikanth's much-awaited movie 2.0. He also posted that he was going to start the shooting of the movie song.
Made on a budget of Rs 450 crore, the film has already created buzz among the audience. After 'Baahubali' series, Rajinikanth's '2.0' is being touted as the costliest project in the South Indian film industry. According to reports, Lyca Productions, which is bank-rolling the project, has already spent a whopping Rs 40 crore just for the film's promotion.
However, reports have also said that the makers have already recovered almost Rs 200 crore by selling the satellite rights of the film. Zee TV Network has purchased the satellite rights of the film's Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions paying an astronomical price of Rs. 110 crore. Meanwhile, the Hindi version of the trilingual project has been bought by AA Films for around Rs 80 crore.
Rajinikanth's 2.0 is being shot in the 3D format. On October 7, the producers released the making video of 2.0 - 3D featurette. As expected, the clip got massive response with its view count reaching 4,453,482 in four days.
"This film has been shot in 3D not for the sake of it, but the script demanded the technology. Lot of Hollywood films are shot in 2D and later they convert it to 3D formats in the post production. But this film has shot in 3D directly," director Shankar said regarding 3D shooting.
2.0 has become a much-awaited project not only because of Rajinikanth, but also Akshay Kumar, who is going to make his debut in the Tamil film industry with this film. 2.0 also stars Adil Hussain, Riyaz Khan and Sudhanshu Pandey. It is slated to release on 25 January, 2018, on the eve of Republic Day next year.
