It is strongly rumoured that superstar Rajinikanth is playing triple roles in his upcoming Shankar-directed 2.0.
Produced by Lyka Productions and billed as the most expensive film ever to have been made in the country, 2.0 is the sequel to the super-hit 2010 film Enthiran: The Robot which was the second film under Rajini-Shankar combination after the colossal hit film Sivaji: The Boss. Amy Jackson, who played the heroine in Shankar’s I and Bollywood’s Akshay Kumar play prominent roles in the film.
Rajini had essayed dual roles of a scientist (Vaseegaran) and the ‘Robot’ (Chitti) in Enthiran: The Robot which had Bollywood’s Danny Denzongpa as an antagonist. Rajini doubled up as the main antagonist in the film in the form of ‘Chitti’.
In the sequel, Akshay Kumar reportedly plays an evil-minded scientist who is engaged in a duel with good scientist Rajini who uses his ‘good’ Robots to win over Akshay’s ‘evil’ Robots.
