Earlier today, the makers of Rajinikanth’s 2.0 were left in a state of shock when the teaser of the film was leaked online. The unfinished/raw teaser was apparently recorded using a mobile phone and featured Thalaiva as well as Akshay Kumar. Reacting to the leak, Shankar’s assistant had urged fans to refrain from sharing it and said that the leak was unacceptable.
“Friends please do not share this leaked trailer of 2.0. It is our Director’s long term dream forte. We won’t know how much hard work went into it and is going into it. If u make this unfinished cut viral, then you cannot enjoy the proper finished cut and it will definitely sadden him and all the technicians of the team. Thank you. The reason I’m posting this is because I’ve also worked very hard like a squirrel on this. #Donotshare #RequestToMemepages #fbpages
Ps: Real #Rajini fans and #DirectorShankar fans will not share it. They will wait for the light of the day,” he had posted on FB.
Now, the Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya has commented on the incident. In a heartfelt tweet, the VIP 2 director said that piracy is unacceptable and must not be encouraged.
“Leaking content online before the official release should not be TOLERATED or ENCOURAGED ! This is a heartless act ignoring hard work, efforts and sentiments of the makers for few seconds of excitement !!! #BeAshamed #StopPiracy #StopMisusingDigitalMedium,” she added.
We sincerely hope that the makers of 2.0 do not face any problems because of the leak.
In case you were not aware, 2.0 is a sci-fi thriller and has been directed by Shankar. A sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran, it will see Rajini reprise his Chitti character from the first part. The film also features Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead. Akki is playing the antagonist in what is the first Tamil film of his career. His horrifying ‘crow’ avatar has already created a buzz amongst fans and could be one of the biggest highlights of 2.0.
