S Shankar's 2.0, reportedly made on a budget of Rs 500 crore, is the sequel to 2010's Enthiran, where Rajinikanth played the double roles of Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti the robot. Rajinikanth will be reprising both roles in 2.0. Akshay Kumar plays the prime antagonist Dr Richard, who transforms into a bird-like creature after a failed experiment. 2.0 is Akshay's debut in the Tamil industry. The film also stars Amy Jackson.
