NVR Cinemas to distribute Rajini’s '2.0'...

 

NV Prasad’s NVR Cinemas will be distributing the much-awaited magnum opus 2.0 in the two Telugu-speaking states - Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. While the rights of the film will remain with Lyca Productions, NVR Cinemas will be distributing it on a commission basis, we hear from trade sources.

The Hindi version of the film will be distributed by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and AA Films.

The film, which is the sequel to the hit 2010 film Endhiran/Robo, is gearing up for a massive release on November 29. 2.0 will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Directed by S Shankar, the film is produced by A Subashkaran’s Lyca Productions on a budget of over Rs 400 crores.

The trailer launch of the movie happened in a grand manner in Chennai recently where the entire cast and crew participated. The event was the cynosure of all eyes for fans across the country.

The film marks the southern debut of Akshay Kumar, who will be seen playing the antagonist. Akshay’s look in the film was highly spoken about when audiences got a glimpse a few months ago.

Talking about his role at the trailer launch, Akshay said that it’d take him five-six hours to get ready to play his character. Akshay shared a picture of himself in his 2.0 avatar as the villain, who is now being called as 'crow man', with heavy makeup on his face, red lenses on his eyes and feathers covering him from head to toe.

He had also joked that it was the only film in his life where he had to spend time for makeup much longer than the lead actress.

Amy Jackson plays the female lead in this sci-fi thriller. The others in the star cast are Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, Kalabhavan Shajohn, and Riyaz Khan. The film’s technical crew comprises AR Rahman for songs with the background score done by him and Qutub-E-Kripa, Nirav Shah for camera and Anthony for editing.

Director Shankar had completed the shooting of this film several months ago and the post-production has been happening for nearly a year now. With a huge amount of graphics work to be included in 2.0, its release was postponed on several occasions in the past.
While the rights of the film will remain with Lyca Productions, NVR Cinemas will be distributing it on a commission basis.
