With the movie set to release on Diwali next year, S Shankar’s ‘Robot 2.0’ launched its first look poster, today, in Mumbai. The film which, stars Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar and Tamil superstar Rajinikath, is a sequel of the 2010 release, Enthiran (Robo in Telegu and Robot in Hindi).

With an estimated budget of Rs 350 crore, Robot 2.0 is assumingly the costliest project in Indian cinema even crossing the benchmark made by ‘Baahubali’. The first look poster was launched in 3D by Lyca Productions at an event hosted by Karan Johar, in the presence of other Bollywood and Tamil stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Kamal Hassan. Sperstar Rajinikanth reached the Yashraj films for the poster launch in a simple white kurta followed by Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson.

Akshay Kumar shared his first look for the movie, captioning his character poster, “Evil has a new face! #2Point0 #3Diwali2017 #2Point0FLLaunc.” The poster has the 49-year-old actor in a devil look with long sharp eyebrows, grey hair, yellow lenses and black nails. Robot 2.0 will be the Bollywood superstars first Tamil project. Akshay will be playing the main antagonist in the Shankar-directed movie.
