The iconic Rajinikanth is beyond any doubt one of the most decorated and celebrated names in Indian cinema today. Fondly called ‘Thalaivaa’, the living legend has established himself as a source of inspiration for fans thanks to his charismatic personality, stylish onscreen image and of course his humble nature. Moreover, he has earned the respect of fans as he is a self-made man in the purest sense.
Now, there is some big news for her fans. According to the latest reports, the superstar’s eagerly-awaited 2.0 may hit screens either on Independence Day or on Deepavali 2018. However, an official confirmation on this is still awaited. In case you did not know, 2.0 was slated to hit screens in April but got delayed because of extensive post-production work. A sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran, it has been directed by S Shankar and will see Rajini reprise his role from the first part. Besides Rajinikanth, it also features Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumar in the lead. At the 2.0 music launch, Akki had said that working on the film was a solid learning experience for him.
“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, 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,” he had said.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Rajinikanth. Besides 2.0, he also Kaala in his kitty. It is a crime-thriller and also has the lovely Bollywood star Huma Qureshi in the lead.
