The upcoming iconic film, 2.0 starring ‘Thalaivar’ Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy had its audio launch function in Burj Khalifa, Dubai on the evening of 27th October . The audio launch event reportedly cost 15 Crores. The production cost of the film is expected to be around 450 Crore when added with promotion and other costs would surely be double the budge of Baahubali series films together.
Adding glare to the event, the whole show was hosted by RJ Balaji, Rana Daggubati and Karan Johar who took turns and spoke in three languages to keep the audiences hooked and entertained through the evening. The event was nothing short of a lifetime spectacle.
As guests graced the evening, the film’s technicians from all the 24 crafts shared their experiences while working on the film. Editor Antony surprised everyone by stating that, the film would be the ‘shortest’ ever cut made by Shankar. ‘Usually, Shankar sir’s film crosses the 3-hour mark, but this film is cut at 2 hours 20 mins’.
While the film’s unit already released two songs on various streaming platforms on Friday night, AR Rahman sang the 3rd song on the evening.
Shankar specially thanked Rajinikanth and the whole team who has made this movie possible. The ace director reiterated that ‘2.0 is not a continuation of Robot. We have incorporated a global message in the film, and the film features few characters from Robot’.
