The VFX featurette of ‘2.0’ was officially unveiled on Sunday. The previsualization techniques and the glimpse of the making hint that the film is truly going to be a benchmark for all the upcoming Indian movies.
VFX supervisor Srinivas Mohan says “ Comparing to ‘2.0’, the VFX in Endhiran is just a teaser”. People are still in awe of the technical excellence of Endhiran but director Shankar confidently says whatever Indian audience saw in Hollywood films can be witnessed in ‘2.0’.
The film’s antagonist Akshay says that the ‘2.0’ is a perfect combination of artistic and technical excellence. The VFX experts are also in full praise for Shankar’s script sense and clarity. Sadly, on the same day of the making video release, a miscreant leaked the rough teaser of the film on the internet.
It was later found that Lyca arranged a special preview of the teaser to reliable business associates and someone leaked it online.
“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 !!! #BeAshamed #StopPiracy #StopMisusingDigitalMedium”, tweeted Soundarya, daughter of Superstar Rajinikanth.
The teaser only had temporary VFX shots and it’s an unfinished product. A section of media says that as the expectations level on the film is slowing down, someone within the team leaked the unfinished teaser. Sources say that Shankar is mighty disappointed with the leak and asked his team to find out the culprit.
