2.0 is a 2018 Indian 3D science fiction-action film directed by S. Shankar and co-written by Shankar with B. Jeyamohan. The film was produced by Subaskaran Allirajah under the banner Lyca Productions. A sequel to Enthiran (2010), it features Rajinikanth reprising the roles of Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti, alongside Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson. Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, Kalabhavan Shajohn, and K. Ganesh appear in supporting roles. In addition to its original language, the film was also released in Hindi and Telugu. The soundtrack is composed by A. R. Rahman, with lyrics written by Madhan Karky and Na. Muthukumar.
Produced on an estimated budget of ₹543 crore (US$76 million), 2.0 is the most expensive Indian film. Pre-production work for the film began in June 2015. Jackson joined the project the same year in October. After negotiations with numerous actors, including Aamir Khan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, failed to materialize, Kumar was signed on as a primary persona. Principal photography was launched at AVM Studios in December 2015; the first schedule was filmed at EVP World. Scenes were primarily shot in India, particularly in Chennai’s Madras Boat Club and Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Some were set in exotic locations by the use of visual effects. Filming was completed by August 2017. It was released worldwide on 29 November 2018.
India faces a threat from Pakshi Rajan (Akshay Kumar), a human who mutated into an avian creature and uses smartphones as weapons. Vaseegaran aka Vasee (Rajinikanth) decides to help the government by reviving the superpowered andro-humanoid robot Chitti (also Rajinikanth) along with his newly invented andro-humanoid robot Nila (Amy Jackson) to eliminate Pakshi Rajan.
