An unfinished video of Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 with temporary graphics got leaked on the internet. The leaked footage which is around 44 seconds long was immediately shared by many on social media. Thanks to the extensive VFX work, the film is still in the post production phase and has been delayed quite a lot in the bargain. Now, superstar Rajinikanth's younger daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth has condemned the leak of the "2.0" teaser and called it a "heartless act".
The teaser of Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson-starrer "2.0" was leaked on social media on Sunday morning. The video went viral soon after it surfaced online.
Soundarya took to Twitter to express her disappointment and anger.
"Leaking content online before the official release should not be tolerated or encouraged! This is a heartless act ignoring hard work, efforts and sentiments of the makers for few seconds of excitement! Be ashamed, stop piracy, stop misusing digital medium," she wrote.

"2.0" will mark the Tamil debut of Akshay and his first film with Rajinikanth. The film also stars Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey.
Directed by Shankar, "2.0" is a sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran (Robot) which also featured Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Touted as one one of the most expensive films of the Indian cinema, a whopping Rs 40 crore are being spent only on the film’s promotions, reports suggest.
2.0 is a sequel to Enthiran, which also features Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain. Akshay Kumar will play an ornithologist and Rajinikanth will be seen as a scientist and a robot in 2.0.
