Dubai's Burj Park is a 11,300 square meter lawn located at the base of Burj Khalifa Tower and a budget of Rs 12 crore has been reportedly allotted for the launch event alone. The lead star cast and crew will now be heading to Dubai, where the audio release function has been planned.

Amy shared that they have been shooting for the film for the past two and a half years. The film has been made on a huge scale that is quite bigger than the first one too. S. Shankar is known for making larger-than-life films and 2.0 will be another feather in his hat.
Amy’s look for the film was released earlier this month. With a black and silver outfit, it looks like Amy Jackson will play a futuristic robot in the film.
The mega-budget project is the sequel to the super hit 2010 film, Enthiran and it is slated to release during the Republic Day weekend next year. It will be released in special 3D format.
