A sequel to Shankar's 2010 blockbuster "Enthiran", "2.0" has been produced by Lyca Productions and was released in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi on November 29. The film, which features Rajinikanth in three different 'avatars', also stars Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey.
The film revolves around a murder mystery starring Akshay Kumar, as an ornithologist in the film. '2.0' starts with Kumar being found hanging from a telephone tower. However, the film soon becomes a full-fledged action flick. One can say that Akshay Kumar is good as Pakshirajan, the ornithologist who has a beef against humans for killing. '2.0' has been made on a budget of Rs 600 crore. Rajinikanth plays a scientist and a robot. He also appears as a microbot, dubbed 3.0, which was one of the major surprise elements.
