The much-awaited teaser of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer 2.0 dropped online today morning. The most expensive Indian film ever, it marks Akshay’s debut in the Tamil film industry.
In the teaser, it appears that Chitti, the robot who was dismantled in the first part, is put together again by Vaseegaran to fight the evil. The VFX work looks mind-blowing and Akshay Kumar looks like a menacing villain. This VFX extravaganza had over 15 studios from across the globe simultaneously working on different portions.
In March this year, the film’s teaser was leaked online by someone who had filmed it at a special screening in London and released it online. The teaser immediately went viral online. Later in June, two pictures from the film were leaked and were widely circulated online.
Akshay Kumar treated his fans with the sci-fi thriller’s teaser on the pious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Sharing the news on Twitter, he wrote, “On the auspicious occasion of #GaneshChaturthi, doing Shree Ganesh of India’s Grandest Film: #2Point0! Here’s a glimpse of the biggest rivalry, Good or Evil…Who decides? #2Point0Teaser.”

Akshay Kumar will be seen playing the antagonist, Dr Richard/Crowman, while Rajini will reprise the roles of Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti from the first instalment, Robot.
Directed by Shankar, 2.0 also features Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Amy Jackson in important roles. AR Rahman has composed the music for the film.
The film was earlier slated to release on October 18 last year, but in trying to better incorporate visual effects, it has been postponed several times. After much delay, it is now scheduled to release on November 29.
