One of the most talked about films of 2019, 2.0 is finally gearing up towards its theatrical release on 29th November. Starring Rajinikanth and Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar in lead roles, the film boasts of some never-seen-before VFX and action sequences.
The makers had hired a team of international action choreographers and VFX artists to work on the two important aspects of that can make or break the film. Since the makers have spent like a sailor on the making of 2.0, the budget of the film has reportedly touched the figure of ₹ 400 crores, making it the costliest film ever produced in India.
“It is not all the ridiculous figures being thrown around by people who have no idea about such things. The actual overall budget of 2.0 is Rs 400 crores, and that too after the VFX was done all over again since the original VFX was of very poor quality. Also, the film is far more expensive than the usual 3D films in India. Most films in this country using that format are first shot in 2D and then converted to 3D. However, 2.0 was shot in 3D,” a source reveals.
2.0 will have to perform extremely well in domestic as well as international markets to recover its cost. We hope the star power of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar drives the audience to theatres in droves.
