In 2010, Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai starred opposite Tamil superstar Rajinikanth in the blockbuster Enthiran. And, not surprisingly, the lady received rave reviews for her performance while impressing us courtesy her chemistry with Rajinikanth.
Nearly eight years later Enthiran’s sequel 2.0 is gearing up for release but Aish is not a part of it. Amy Jackson is playing the female lead while Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar is essaying a negative role.
According to the latest reports, 2.0 will feature some references to the first part and Aishwarya’s character too will appear on the big screen. However, it is not known if the makers will use old footage or shoot a few scenes with the diva. This is a wait and watch situation and it will be worth watching what happens next.
2.0—which is a Shankar directorial—was slated to release this month but got delayed because of post-production work. Its new release date has not been finalised yet. Interestingly, the 2.0 audio launch was held last October and it proved to be a grand event. At the event, Akki had said that working on 2.0 was a good leaning expedience for him.
“I have done 130 films (in Bollywood). 2.0 was my 131st film. I can only say that during the making of those 130 films, I got to learn little from every film, but I was learning throughout the shooting of this film. There’s a lot that we have to learn from South because the way they work, we have to understand a lot now. They work in unity and respect each other’s talent, we have to learn that,” he had added.
He had also praised Rajini and called him a ‘real superstar’.
“Rajini sir is the real superstar. I would like to thank Shankar sir for giving me the opportunity of working with a legend like Rajinikanth. I could’ve never imagined that I will get a chance to work in such a big and costly film like 2.0,” Akki had added.
So, do you think 2.0 will live up to expectations? Comments, please!
