Check Out: Rajinikanth, Akshay starrer ‘2.0’ poster unveiled
For the first time in the history of Indian cinema, two big names from the South and the North are coming together. The poster of the most awaited film of 2017, a sequel to ‘Enthiran', titled '2.0' starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar is out and the poster features Akshay Kumar in the villainous role. The poster was released ahead of the first look which is scheduled to release on Sunday.
Earlier a poster of Akshay Kumar in the antagonist avatar with big eyebrows was released. The poster is quite enticing and justifies the sci-fi movie. The first look will be released in a grand ceremony at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai. The star-studded event will be hosting filmmaker Karan Johar and it will be graced by the entire star cast of the film and other film fraternities. The event will be also be shown live on YouTube channel.
A whopping amount of 6 crore is expected to shell on the event. “This is a global film, which is being produced with a huge budget of Rs. 350 crore. We wanted to leave no stone unturned and wanted to reveal the first look in all grandiose. So, we roped in Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar to host the hour-long event. Characters played by Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar will be revealed in 3-D,” said Raju Mahalingam, creative head, Lyca Productions.
Raju Mahalingam said that Tamil fans need not have to feel dissapointed as in the coming days big launch event will be hosted in different cities.
“This is just the first-look launch. We are hoping to organise much bigger events in the coming months for launch of the teaser, trailer and the audio of the film, across the cosmopolitan cities in India,” he said.
Ironically, the banning of big currency notes would not play spoil sport and here’s the reason. “We had absolutely no issues. Let me state very clearly: we deal in cheques and every penny is accounted for,” said Mr. Mahalingam.
