Shankar took to Twitter to post a picture of his crew with the caption stating that they just shot a major scene from 2.0. He also added that they are just one song and some patch works away from the completion of the film. The Indian Express reports that Shankar confirmed that majorly, only a song remains to be shot that will be shot next month, featuring Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson.

Jackson finished shooting for the film earlier this week and and will return to the sets next month to shoot for the song with Rajinikanth. International Business Times reports that the trailer of the film might be launched on 14 April on the occasion of the Tamil New Year. However, there is no official word of confirmation from the makers yet.

2.0 is the sequel to Shankar's blockbuster film Enthiraan or Robot, as it was named in Hindi. Rajnikanth will reprise his double role as scientist, Dr Vaseegaran, and robot Chitti. While that film starred Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opposite the megastar, the sequel will see him romance with Jackson.

Also, Hindi actor Akshay Kumar will play the negative role in the film. Hindustan Times reports that Kumar will play a dark character who plans to destroy the entire world with the help of birds. This is the first time that he has collaborated with Rajinikanth. The Tamil superstar has collaborated with Shankar for the third time after the 2007 film Shivaji: The Boss and Enthiraan.

2.0 also stars Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Riyaz Khan. It is produced by Lycra Productions and will be released simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It is slated to release on Diwali.
