2018 is going to be a great year for superstar Rajinikanth as the most eagerly awaited 2.0 is releasing in April, 2018. The actor has been lately meeting his fans and friends to promote his movie as he did not have a 2017 release, despite being in the spotlight for his political plunge. Made on a budget of Rs 450 crore, Rajinikanth’s 2.0 is said to be India’s most expensive film. The sci-fi entertainer has been directed by S Shankar and has Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar as the antagonist. The Rajinikanth flick will be released in three languages — Tamil, Hindi and Telugu. Besides these three languages, the film will be released in 12 other languages too.
On his interaction with the fans, the Tamil superstar told Firstpost, “ I don’t think there will be another big budget movie like 2.0. It is going to be the ultimate and will be a fresh and interesting subject. Of course there will be even more expensive films in the future but I’m sure this one will be remembered for its grandeur and treatment as much as SS Vasan’s Chandralekha (1948) was for the older generation. The release of the film got delayed because of the CG work and (AR) Rahman can do the re-recording only after the final mix is ready.”
