2.0 release date confirmed; Akshay Kumar not a villain in the film
Amid speculations that the release of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer, 2.0 may get postponed to April, Raju Mahalingam, creative head of Lyca, confirmed the release date. “As of now, the release date of the film is January 25. No change in that,” Raju Mahalingam told Scroll.
While Akshay Kumar’s look in the film hints that he plays the villain in the film, but that’s not entirely correct. Although the character had lots of negative shades, when Akshay came on board, it was toned down keeping in mind his hero image. He may sport a villainous look, but his character strives for a good cause.
Even at the press meet of the film in Dubai ahead of the audio launch, director Shankar had hinted that Akshay is not just an antagonist in the film, his character has a lot of shades to it.
