Shankar started the production of 2.0, last December. The film is the sequel to the highly successful Enthiran. The film shooting has been going on in Chennai,Delhi and the team even shot a couple of scenes in Morocco. With the announcement that the film’s first look will be out in November, there is a continual buzz about the release date. Earlier it was reported that the film will be out for Tamil New Year Day 2017. Now there are strong rumours that the film will release as a massive Diwali 2017 treat

There have been delays in production and the fact that Rajini had taken 2 months off post Kabali seems to have altered the schedule. The film also will need extensive VFX which need time. Official confirmation is awaited.

The film stars Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in lead roles.
