Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson and AR Rahman along with director S Shankar are in Dubai for the audio launch of the much-awaited 2.0. The cast and crew met the media there today and teased about what fans can expect.

As the 2.0 fever begins, here’s a peek at what the stars are up to:

At the press meet, according to PTI, Rajinikanth promised 2.0 would be a film to watch out for.

2.0 is going to be India’s most prestigious film. It will appeal to both the global and Indian audiences.

Akshay Kumar on the other hand said he had his work etched out with Shankar having a very clear idea about what he wanted.

It took me about three-and-a-half hours to apply makeup and one and a half hours to remove the same.

According to director Shankar, 2.0 would be very different from the original.

2.0 has a new format, a unique premise and a new message. The film has made in international standards. It will not look like an ordinary Indian action movie. It’s a socio-fantasy, sci-fi action film.
S Shankar, Filmmaker

And on making the film in the 3D format, he said:

3D makes the movie-watching experience very exciting. And the movie required the 3D technology. It’s not a technological gimmick to invite audiences. After experiencing 2.0 in 3D, Indian viewers would like to watch more 3D films in theatres in future.

Akshay Kumar is not just an antagonist in the film. There’s a lot of shades to his character. He has performed very well, and you can see a very different Akshay Kumar in the film.

Music director AR Rahman said there are three songs in the film.

There’re three songs in the album. Two tracks will be released tomorrow and the remaining one, later. As we approach the background score, we may have more bit tracks added to the OST.
