Rajinikanth’s 2.0 is shot entirely in India after PM Modi’s ‘Make in India’
Make in India is one of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s key policy initiatives that seeks to encourage manufacturing in India. PM Modi had a word with Rajinikanth a few months back when the work on Robot had just begun and had suggested that the much-anticipated film will promote the Make in India theme.
Rajinikanth’s Robot 2.0‘, sequel to the blockbuster ‘Robot,’ is a big-budget film (Rs 350-crore movie) and is truly a “Make In India” themed movie. The movie is shot entirely in India, all technical heads are Indians and also most of the VFX technology used in the film.
Slated to be the most expensive Indian film ever made, the movie will release in seven languages (including Japanese, Korean and Mandarin). Director of the movie Shankar is known for his scale and grandness. In fact, most of his films have artists featuring in exotic foreign locations. However, superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.0 is unique in that way. Robot 2.0 is touted as the costliest Asian film, which is shot using 3D technology. The highlight of the film is going to be the face-off between Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth.
The climax of the movie was shot in Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi and the rest in EVP film city in Chennai. The movie also stars Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain, 2.0 has music by Academy Award winner AR Rahman and will hit the screens this Diwali.
