"We are working on it. After struggling for weeks, Shankar and I have discovered a method. We are not fully satisfied with the voice quality yet. In a while, we will get the perfect voice and pitch for Akshay," said Resul Pookutty, according to an India Today report.


Later this month, the 2.0 team will host a grand audio launch at the Burj Park in Dubai. The makers have reportedly spent Rs 12 crore to host the lavish event.

Academy Award winner AR Rahman is expected to croon live at the audio launch apart from a host of other exciting performances and stage shows. 2.0  is said to be the costliest Asian movie to ever get made, with a budget of a whopping Rs 400 crore. The movie stars Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain alongside Kumar and Rajinikanth. The movie is expected to release in 8000-9000 screens across India.
