- "It was mesmerising," Rajinikanth said of his experience
- There's also a glimpse of Amy Jackson in the making video
- This is the second 2.0 making video shared by the film's team
"The first 3D shot I saw on a small screen. Repeatedly I was watching it... don't know how many times I watched because it was mesmerising," the 66-year-old megastar says in the video. "Working in 3D is a lot harder than I imagined from the set up to the extent of how perfect things really need to be in every single shot," adds Akshay, who shares screen space with Rajinikanth for the first time. "As for India, it is such an experience that the excitement is 10 fold," he adds.
Shankar wraps the video with an assurance we all are going to love: The 2.0 experience will be "no less than any Hollywood 3D movie."
Watch the fun unfold here:
Akshay plays the antagonist - Dr Richards - who turns into a birdman like creature after an experiment goes wrong. Amy Jackson is also part of 2.0, which is a sequel to Rajinikanth's 2010 film Enthiran. In the movie, Rajinikanth will reprise his roles as scientist Vaseegaran and also his creation Chitti just like the first part. Actors Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain are also part of the 2.0 cast.
2.0 was earlier expected to hit screens on Diwali but has been rescheduled twice with the release date being shifted to the Republic Day weekend in 2018.
