Superstar Rajinikanth is known to rake up records at box-office like no Indian star has ever done it before; the ‘man of the masses’ was at it again yesterday as the teaser of the ‘making of 2.0’ vide has been registering likes and views at an unbelievable rate!
Director Shankar, who recently wrapped up the shoot of 2.0 (sequel to his 2010 super-duper hit film Enthiran: The Robot) and had announced earlier that there would be a ‘surprise’ for Rajini’s fans on ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ (Friday). Shankar didn’t disappoint and went ahead and released a 107-second long teaser of video of ‘making of 2.0 which has now become a rage on social networking sites.
Within 10 hours of its release, the video had registered 1 lakh likes and 2 million views/downloads. Produced by Lyka Productions at a huge cost of Rs.400 crores, 2.0 stars Rajinikanth, Akahay Kumar, Amy Jackson and Sudanshu Pandey in lead roles. A.R. Rahman scores the music of the film which is cinematographed by Nirav Shah.
The film has been in the making for the past 2 years and the post-production work including many computer-generated graphic sequences is said to be taking more time than expected, forcing the makers to announce that the film would be released only during January (Pongal) next year.
The unbelievable response to a teaser which only contains a video of making of the film is proof enough of the fact that Rajini, despite his 67 years of age, is still the undisputed ‘emperor’ of Kollywood!
