2.0: Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Shankar promote the film in Hyderabad

Talking about Mudhalvan 2 and Indian 2, director Shankar has said that he will not use the political image of Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth in his films. 

“As a matter of fact, I finished writing the script of Indian 2 before Kamal sir’s political entry. I didn’t add or remove any scenes to suit his political image. Similarly, if I get an interesting idea for Mudhalvan 2 and if the character demands a senior actor, my choice would be Rajini sir”, said Shankar.

In Tamil Nadu, Shankar’s ‘2.0’ has only reported average collections on day 2 whereas the Hindi and Telugu versions are holding steady at the box office.

Thanking the audiences for all their positive reviews, Shankar tweeted “My heart full thanks to the audience who have lapped up #2point0 and celebrated and made it a huge success, and to all the media who supported and respected the hard work of our team, and to my whole team who have given a piece of their life to 2.0”.
