The much awaited film 2.0 starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles is finally releasing tomorrow, i.e. November 29, 2018. Directed by Shankar, the big budget film is a sequel to 2010 film Enthiran. The craze around the film’s release is immense with advance ticket booking already breaking the record at the box office. While the makers of 2.0 have geared up for the release, reportedly, the Cellular Operators Association of India, COAI, has filed a complaint against the film. Yes, the film has landed into trouble just a day ahead of its release.
The makers of 2.0 are accused of promoting “obscurantist and anti-scientific attitude toward mobile phone, towers and mobile services” in the film. COAI in the complaint states that the film is wrongly depicting mobile phones and mobile towers as harmful. The complaint has been sent to the CBFC and Ministry of Information and technology. The complaint demands a review of the film before the release as the trailer and teaser of 2.0 have depicted mobile phones and mobile towers as harmful with no evidence. Meanwhile, the makers of the film have not spoken up on the matter yet.
In the film, Rajinikanth plays a scientist and a robot. 2.0 is the sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran (Robot) which also featured Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Lyca Productions has produced 2.0 starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles. The film marks Akshay Kumar’s Tamil debut. Amy Jackson is the female lead in this Shankar-directorial movie.
