Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0, directed by Shankar, had its grand first look launch on Sunday evening.
The event was so huge that it introduced megastar Rajinikanth in a unique style. Hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, the highlight of the launch was of course Rajinikanth. Since he plays two roles in the film, at the event too Rajinikanth was introduced in two different ways. Initially, the virtual Rajinikanth, clad in Chitti’s (character in ROBOT) came forth, later Rajinikanth himself made a grand entry that made the crowd inside the audi go berserk.
Besides his grand introduction, it was his statements that made the fans go gaga over him. Here are few statements by megastar Rajini that will make you love him even more.
Rajinikanth lauds Akshay Kumar:
Not only media & fans, the KABALI actor was also full of praises for his co-actor, Akshay Kumar, who’s playing the villain in the film. Talking about how Akshay has given one of the finest performances of his lifetime, Rajini said, “The hero of 2.0 is not Rajinikanth but Akshay Kumar. Had I been given a chance, I would have taken that (Akshay’s) character. Hats-off to Akshay that he worked so hard. It’s a brilliant role. The whole country will be proud of Akshay.”

Talking about working with director Shankar:
To work with Shankar is difficult. He is a perfectionist. That is why he is one of the biggest directors. This picture as 3D is a different experience. But the truth is Akshay Kumar is the hero
Rajini praises Salman Khan:
As we all saw Salman Khan made a fanboy entry at the event just to get the glimpse of superstar Rajinikanth. An ever humble Rajini acknowledged Salman Khan’s effort for paying him a visit at the launch. After thanking Salman for attending the event despite not being invited, the actor said, “If Salman says yes, I’ll work with him in a film even tomorrow.”
