Super Star Rajinikanth’s upcoming entertainer 2.0 directed by Shankar is attracting the attention of all as it turned out to be the Asia’s most expensive film. Since the film is a sequel for Rajini-Aishwarya Rai’s blockbuster film Robot,expectations are skyhigh on the project. Even as movie lovers are waiting eagerly for the release of the film, reports are coming out that the project landed in huge complications.
A source reveals “ Originally,20’s budget was Rs 65crs. But keeping the special effects in mind,they increased it to Rs 90crs. But the film is now costing Rs 160cr, an amount that would be impossible to recover”
Source revealed “ They simply shot with expensive camera and crew without doing their homework. Then they sent the film for post production to an American FX company,which messed it up completely. Precious resources and time was lost. It had to be done all over again, pushing the budget to Rs 160crs’
The source went on to add” Rajinikanth is God like in the south. But he doesn’t have a market in the North. The producers are hoping to get Akshay Kumar to promote the film in the Hindi belt. But as Akshay plays the antagonist in the film, It may not go down too well with his fans. But for all of this to be considered, the film first needs to be completed,and that doesn’t seem to be a possibility”
