Rajinikanth’s last movie – Kaala – released in June and the film fared decently at the box-office. The actor played the role of a gangster in the film and his fans couldn’t stop raving about his exceptional act. Now the superstar’s next outing will be the much-awaited, 2.0. The movie, which is also referred to as Enthiran 2, has been in the making since years and the release date (November 29, 2019) was finally announced yesterday.

The director of 2.0 – Shankar – revealed the date of release on Twitter and stated that the VFX work is finally over. In fact, the main reason why 2.0 was pushed several times was that the company working on the special effects had failed to meet their deadline. Well, you can’t blame them as 2.0 is Shankar’s most ambitious project till date and is supposed to have the best VFX ever for an Indian film. Earlier this year, there were reports that 2.0 will only hit theatres in January 2019, so the sudden announcement of the release was a pleasant surprise for fans of Rajinikanth.
Besides Rajinikanth, 2.0 stars Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, and Kaizaad Kotwal. While Kumar plays the role of the antagonist, Jackson will be seen as Rajinikanth’s love interest. Akshay looks totally unrecognizable as he wears a lot of heavy makeup and prosthetics. The music is scored by none other than A. R. Rahman, who has collaborated with Shankar before. 2.0 has the word blockbuster written all over it. It only remains to be seen if the movie can break the box-office records set b S. S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion.
