2.0 2 point zero teaser

Chennai, Nov 3: The trailer of superstar Rajinikanth’s forthcoming multilingual science-fiction action drama “2.0” was unveiled on Saturday at a grand event here.

A sequel to Shankar’s 2010 blockbuster “Enthiran”, the film has been produced by Lyca Productions and is gearing for release on November 29.

“2.0” also stars Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey in important roles.

Speaking at the trailer launch, Rajinikanth said the film has been made on a lavish budget of nearly Rs. 600 crore.

“Mark my words, the film will be a super hit. Advance wishes to Shankar and Lyca Productions. Nearly Rs. 600 crore has been spent on the film. The film wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Lyca,” Rajinikanth said.

He said that the makers spent lavishly on the film for the vision of Shankar.

“This is not a Rajinikanth film. The money has been spent on one man Shankar, who has never failed to entertain audiences. This is his vision and I laud Lyca Productions for backing him,” he added.

In the film, Rajinikanth plays a scientist and a robot.

Speaking on the occasion, Shankar said audience will see Rajinikanth in multiple avatars and it’ll be a treat to watch.

“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,” he said.

Shankar raved about Rajinikanth’s commitment.

“When we were all set to shoot the climax in a stadium in Delhi, Rajini sir fell ill. Six months of planning had gone into the preparation of the climax which was supposed to be shot in 40 days. Despite his bad health, Rajini sir insisted that we go ahead with the shoot,” Shankar said.

“We shot in extremely hot temperature. Rajini sir had to shoot wearing 12 kilo robotic suit. We were stunned by his commitment,” he added.

“2.0”, which will release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, has music by AR Rahman.

Kavita Kaushik

Bigg Boss 14 saw a massive showdown between Kavita Kaushik and Aly Goni after the actor lost his cool when she takes away his personal items as a punishment for breaking house rules.

In a fit of rage, Aly kicked a trash bin which hurt Kavita, who was standing close to it and the house erupted in chaos.

Now talking about his wife’s struggle Kavita’s husband Ronnit Biswas said, “Physical violence was never a thing which we had signed up for whether it happened directly or indirectly it doesn’t matter.”

“I had seen the promo first, a day before yesterday and I was very disturbed. But once I saw the way Kavita was putting up to it and how she was behaving I felt extremely proud of her. My sadness disappeared and I got happy thinking that no matter how much you try to target this girl, she will not bow down to anyone. She will come out shining and strong,” said a proud Ronnit in a conversation with ETimes TV.

He also went on to say that what Kavita said to Aly was not a big deal. Stating that Aly also said the same line to Kavita thrice, Ronnit revealed, “He has also said this to her thrice after that. So, I think the topic should have ended then and there itself. But I understand most of the housemates know that Kavita is quite strong and if they fight with her or corner her, they will get some footage. It is very sad that in a country where we keep talking about women are equal to men, we worship Goddess, we celebrate women and talk about women empowerment, there is a man who is threatening a woman on national television that he will make her life a living hell or won’t let her sleep.

Few of Ronnit’s relatives, who are in law enforcement, have approached him asking him if he wants to file a complaint against Aly Goni. “I have been getting a lot of calls from our well-wishers and relatives who are into the Police force, Government officials and they are asking me If I want to take action against Aly Goni or register a complaint. Although, I have told them that it is not needed, but I was expecting from the channel and the production house a stricter punishment. One week’s nomination doesn’t make any sense,” concluded Ronnit.

Let’s see if Aly and Kavita bury the hatches in weeks to come or not.
