Robot 2 is an upcoming science-Fiction film, directed by S. Shankar and produced by Subaskaran Allirajah under the banner of Lyca productions. The movie is a sequel of 2010 film Robot, which amused the audience with its amazing graphics and use of Hi-tech technology. The movie will have Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead roles. The music for the movie will be composed by A.R. Rahman. The film is being produced simultaneously in three languages—Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The name of the movie is yet to be decided, whereas on Wikipedia we see it as “2.0”, but for now let us call it Robot 2. The story and plot of the movie is not revealed yet, but since the movie is scheduled for release in 2017, we expect the details to be out by the end of 2016.
The 2010 robot was a big hit among the audience, super star Rajinikanth, enticing Aishwarya and an interesting story and captivating action managed to impress the audience. The sequel of the movie was announced immediately after the release of Robot. People now expect even more thrill and action from the sequel. The first part showed an amazing Robot being invented by Rajinikanth but later when things go beyond control, he realizes the world is not ready for this machine now and he dis mantles it and put it as a display in the museum. The action- drama sequel is likely to bring much more complicated and exciting action for the audience.
The sequel will see Rajinikanth in an even more influential role, and why Rajini only the entire star cast has to be strongly impactful to create the magic as did by the first part. The director Shankar has left no stone un-turned to make it worth the expectations of the people.
Our very own super star Rajini will be in the lead role , playing Dr. Vaseegaran and chitti, his sole presence in the movie would have had been enough to draw huge crowds of audience to the theaters. British actress Amy Jackson signed the movie in October 2015 and met the production team in Los Angeles. After many discussions the team arrived at the decision of signing Akshay Kumar as the main antagonist for the role for which previously Aamir Khan and Arnold Schwarzenegger was being considered.
The team decided to make an official public announcement of the sequel on 12th December, 2015 coinciding with Rajini’s birthday but due to heavy floods in South India they refrained form publicity and called off the event. The first schedule of the movie was shot on 16th December in India only and also that day the entire cast gathered for a photo-shoot to mark the beginning of shooting. Another schedule of shooting was done with Akhay Kumar in Jawaharlalnehru stadium , Delhi in which a football match was sequenced. Some portions of the movie will be shot in morocco too.
First look of the movie was out in which Akshay Kumar can be seen in a very unusual look. From his creepy outfit we can make out that he will be playing the role of an insane antagonist against Rajini. Amy Jackson, the beautiful actress will be in the lead role opposite Rajini. Shankar has to make all the efforts to make Robot 2 a sky rocket success. Though generally confined to South cinema only, Shankar has gone beyond his arena and started with this huge budget movie. The director will have to bring these two mega stars Rajini and Akshay together influentially on the screen and also meet the deadline and be on theaters in time.
The Robot 2 is set in the near future where events cause Dr. Vaseegaran to rebuild Chitti the Robot. Akshay Kumar plays villain role name Dr. Richard.
