The grand spectacle 2.0 is on its way to a massive release for 29th November, 2018. 2.0 ticket bookings opened last week and the public’s reaction on social media is proof enough of the grandness of this RajinikanthAkshay Kumar film. The film is considered as the most expensive Indian film to be ever made. It is a VFX wonder that will unveil on the big screen soon. There are quite a few interesting facts about the film everyone’s been waiting for this whole year but there is one fact that many may not have thought about.

The 2001 film Nayak is still remembered as one of the best Anil Kapoor films. His character Shivaji Rao is one of the most iconic Bollywood characters. An aam admi turned Chief Minister for a day, Shivaji Rao cleansed the government machinery in a day, something that seems impossible even today. A common man almost single-handedly took on the various state departments and gave to the public what was needed – accountability. While we all remember the brilliant performances delivered by Anil Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Rani Mukherjee, and Paresh Rawal we tend to forget the brain behind this movie. If you don’t remember then let us tell you that Nayak was directed by none other than the maverick director – Shankar. The same man behind the magnum opus – 2.0, Shankar directed and wrote the screenplay and story for Nayak. Did you know that?
