Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer Magnum opus '2.0' grand trailer was launched at Chennai’s Sathyam Cinemas on Saturday.

Amidst the enthusiastic audience, superstars Rajinikanth and Akshay along with veteran director Shankar, AR Rahman and Resul Pookutty were present at the event. Rajinikanth was casually dressed in a white shirt and a pair of jeans, while Akshay was formally dressed in a grey suit and dark glasses.

The trailer wowed the audience with its extravagant visuals. The film's VFX was also much appreciated by the audience. The music was yet another thing about the film that the audience absolutely loved.

2.0 is a sequel to Rajinikanth's 2010 film Enthiran, in which the megastar played the dual roles of scientist Dr Vaseegaran and his creation robot Chhiti.

The film, which also marks Akshay's Tamil debut, sees him in the role of an antagonist, Dr Richard/Crowman. While Rajini will reprise his role of Dr Vaseegaran/Chitti from the original.

The nearly 2 minute-long trailer of the sci-fi venture is packed with Rajinikanth's superhuman on-screen antics and shows Chitti's face-off with Akshay's cellphone-hating mutant scientist.

The film also features Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Amy Jackson in key roles. Produced by Lyca Productions, at USD 75 million 2.0 is touted to be the costliest Indian film ever made.

It is more expensive than many Hollywood VFX classics such as Deadpool (2016) which originally cost only USD 58 million. Even X-Men (2000) was made in USD 75 million and Batman (1989) in USD 35 million.
