“The world is not just for humans,” announces the teaser of Shankar’s 2.0, released today on YouTube. A mysterious evil force, belonging to the supervillain Dr Richard (Akshay Kumar), is bent on swooping up all the cellphones in the world. Making matters worse is a gigantic bird-like creation attacking cities. Seeking a solution, the world turns to scientist Dr Vaseegaran (Rajinikanth) who lets his robotic clone Chitti loose to bring Dr Richard’s evil plans to an end.
2.0 is the sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran, directed by Shankar, which first featured Rajinikanth as Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti. Akshay Kumar makes his Tamil debut in 2.0. The film also stars Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain, and Sudhanshu Pandey in supporting roles. AR Rahman has composed the music and the background score.
The 90-second teaser promises heavy-duty special effects, computer-generated graphics, and ambitious fight sequences. The film will hit screens in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on November 29.
