Rajinikanth is all set to head to Dubai on October 27 for the grand music launch of his next film 2.0 at the Burj Park. Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson are expected to be present as well.

This star-studded music launch of the blockbuster doesn’t end with just on-screen star appearances. Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman, who has also composed the music for 2.0, is all set to bring in the drum rolls with a 20-minute concert. Latest reports suggest Amy Jackson will put up a song-dance spectacle to conclude the event. Director Shankar, who has directed the 2010 sequel, will also join this entourage.

Expected to be India’s most expensive film, with a rumoured budget of over Rs 4.5 billion, 2.0 has been filmed both in Hindi and Tamil and will hit the screen on January 25 next year.

While Akshay Kumar will be seen as a villain in this mega-budget film, Rajinikanth will portray the double role of Chitti and Dr Vaseegara.

Interestingly, this is Akshay Kumar’s debut film in south. On the other hand, it will be one of biggest projects Amy Jackson has ever been part of. She was last seen in the Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer Freaky Ali (2016).

Amy on Sunday confirmed on Twitter that the shoot for 2.0 has all been completed. She wrote, “Aaaand that’s a wrap for 2.0. The past 2 and a half years have been an absolute rollercoaster… but the outcome will knock ya socks offf!”

Her look for the sci-fi film was released few weeks ago. Wearing a black and silver outfit, it seemed like Amy Jackson will be represented as a futuristic robot in the film.
