Popular Tamil actor Arya just took to Twitter and confirmed that he will be promoting director S Shankar’s magnum opus ‘2.0’ at the world’s largest cycling event in Britain over the next few days. He will be cycling in an outfit with the posters of ‘2.0’ on it. In return for this, Lyca will sponsor his participation in the tournament.
Interestingly, Arya has trained quite hard for the event. While speaking to silverscreen, he said that he considers cycling to be serious business and not a part time gig.
“This event happens only every four years. So, I have been riding for 100 kms a day for the past few years, aiming to participate in this challenge. I have done rigorous weight training and core exercises, too. Cycling is just not part time, I take it seriously,” he added.
In case you did not know, ‘2.0’ is touted to be a sci-fi thriller and will be released in 2018. A sequel to the 2010 release ‘Enthiran’, the film will see superstar Rajkinikanth reprise his much-loved Chitti character from the first part. Besides him. ‘2.0’ also features Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead. Bollywood’s ‘Khiladi’ will be playing a negative role here. This will be the first Tamil film of his career. Interestingly, 2.0 is not the only eagerly-awaited film in Rajini’s kitty. At present, he is shooting for ‘Kaala’ which features him in the role of a gangster.
