Sensational filmmaker Shankar is known for his master storytelling and his films have massive scope for VFX work. His next outing 2.0 is made on a budget of 75 million USD revealed the makers and it is gearing up for November 29th release. Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumar played the lead roles in 2.0. Shankar during his recent interaction with a leading news portal revealed some exclusive updates about 2.0. Here are some of them in his words:

The total budget of 2.0 is in between 70 and 75 million USD which even includes the publicity costs. The final budget will be figured out later and the makers announced a round figure of 75 million USD as the budget.

We haven’t planned the film on such huge budget and it is because of the VFX work, the budget got heaped up.

About one third budget of 2.0 was spent for VFX work and the film has 2100 VFX shots.

With the budget limitations and commercial boundaries, we have restricted ourselves. Else 2.0 needs much more in terms of budget.

We allotted the VFX work to an American company which ended up bankrupt. It is because of this, the film’s release has been pushed several times.

We then allotted the work to another company which promised to deliver the complete output by January 2018. It is then we planned a grand audio launch in Dubai, but things got delayed again.

After a series of delays, 2.0 is releasing on November 29th. AR Rahman delivered some stunning background score for the film and I was completely satisfied with his work.

Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar turned Superstars because of their dedication and hardwork. They are never late to sets and they work everyday like it is their first film.
