The film is produced by S.Sashikanth’s “Y NOT Studios”. Talks are going on to rope a as of yet unnamed Hollywood actor to play a role in this film. Earlier, the makers of ‘2.0’ tried to rope in Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the villain but issues with the trade agreements made it difficult, leading to Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.
