Maverick director Shankar’s sequel to Robo is gearing up for Diwali release. Titled 2.0, the sequel features Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson in the lead roles. Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar plays the antagonist in it.
The high budget VFX extravaganza is one of the most awaited movies of the year. With so much craze around it, all the popular channels vied for its satellite rights.
Zee Network offered Rs. 110 crore for Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam satellite rights of 2.0 and the deal was reportedly sealed.
If the movie made so much from satellite rights, then imagine how huge its theatrical business is going to be.
Robo Hindi version didn’t live up to expectations but Shankar made sure to have National wide appeal by roping in Akshay Kumar. 2.0 will have rich VFX that is touted to be the best ever graphics work in an Indian film.
