The much awaited magnum opus 2.0 is finally nearing its release after a lot of delays. Now, the sci-fi venture recently got the clearance of the CBFC (Censor Board of Film Certification) with a UA certificate. And in comparison to Shankar’s Enthiran (Robot) and other films, 2.0 is the shortest film of his career with a running time of 148 minutes (2 hours 28 minutes).
The movie will see Akshay Kumar in the role of the lead antagonist and talking about Rajinikanth’s role, Shankar was quoted saying, “Audiences will see him as scientist Vaseegaran, robot Chitti and 2.0 version of Chitti. There will also be a giant version of Chitti in the climax. We also have another version but we’d like to keep that as a surprise.”
Talking about the movie, he said, “Except for main characters, 2.0 is a completely different film from Enthiran. Major Hollywood studios adjusted their prior commitments to work on this project as they were so impressed with the subject of the film.”
2.0 will hit the screens on 29th November and will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions. The Hindi one will be presented by Karan Johar under his banner Dharma Productions.
