Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.O nears completion

Megastar Rajinikanth and Superstar Akshay Kumar`s upcoming Tamil magnum opus 2.O is inching closer to completion. Director Shankar on Friday revealed that a song and some patchwork are the only pending portions. "With my team after finishing a major scene of 2.o. One song and some patch work still left," Shankar tweeted on Friday and shared a photograph. The remaining song, according to a source, will be shot on Rajinikanth and actress Amy Jackson next month. A sequel to 2010 Tamil blockbuster, 2.o features Rajinikanth in dual roles - a scientist and a robot. Also starring Akshay Kumar as the antagonist, apart from Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain, the film has been bankrolled by Lyca Productions on a budget of Rs 450 crore. The film will have a simultaneous release in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi this Diwali. “We have nearly completed 90% of the shoot, one song with Amy Jackson and Rajinikanth will be canned next month and then it will be a wrap,” a source close to the team informed us. 2.o is the sequel to Rajinikanth and Shankar’s 2010 blockbuster film, Robot. In the sequel, Rajinikanth will be seen playing a dual role -- scientist Vasee and advanced robot Chitti. Akshay Kumar’s role will be on par with Rajinikanth; he plays a deadly villain. “Akshay plans to destruct the entire world with the help of birds and how Vasee-Chitti duo tackles him forms the major crux of 2.o. The film will be a major milestone in terms of VFX and the core story also has a global theme,” added the source. Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain also play pivotal roles in the film, which will simultaneously release in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi this Diwali.
