Rahman has composed for this mega-budget film, which is produced at a whopping Rs 450 crore.

The team had announced that the audio launch of 2.0 will be held today evening at Burj Park in Dubai! To make it more grand, the poster of the film was projected on the massive Burj Khalifa tower! At the press meet that was held before the audio launch, director Shankar revealed, “2.0 is not a continuation to Enthiran. It has a new premise, which has a global message.” On the other hand, speaking about sharing the screen space with Superstar, Akshay emphatically remarked, “I have to do five more films with Rajini sir to learn a lot more from him!”
