Talking about Akshay Kumar’s role in ‘2.0’ a sourced informed Deccan Chronicle, “Akshay is not a villain in ‘2.0’. The costume and prosthetics suggest he plays a ferocious character. And he does! But Akshay’s role as Dr. Richard is fighting for the right causes. He struggles against forces that have plundered and devastated the earth.” The source also claimed, “It was never a villainous part even when it was offered to Kamal Haasan. Once Akshay came in, even the hints of negativity were removed as they clashed with his image of the national hero.”
Meanwhile, much to the excitement of Rajinikanth and Enthiran fans, Shankar’s 2.0 team recently made the announcement that the film’s 3D teaser will be out on September 13. A new poster featuring a giant bird’s claw shattering glass was released along with this announcement.
