The shooting of the final portions of Shankar's 2.0 is currently going on at a brisk pace. Produced by Lyca Prodctions, the sequel to 2010 blockbuster, Enthiran stars Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson in lead roles. The film also marks the Tamil debut of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar as main antagonist.In a recent interview, Amy Jackson was quoted as saying;
"Rajinikanth Sir is an absolute legend. Sharing screen space with him was a lifetime experience for me. Akshay and I will shoot for our portions together now. We didn't have anything together in the earlier schedules. We have done Sing Is Bliing together and it's so much fun to reunite with him on screen. He's an excellent co-star and this is my second film with him and it only gets better as you go along. It's true that makers were considering Arnold for the part that Akshay is playing, but I think Akki is better than Arnold. He's brilliant, he's got that Bollywood pull and it works very well for the film. Also, he's pulled off his part so well".
2.0 also stars Adil Hussain and Kalabhavan Shajon. The music of the film has been composed by AR Rahman. The sci-fi thriller is scheduled to release on Diwali 2017.
