During the trailer launch of Sankar’s 2 point 0, The superstar Rajinikanth said,
“It is nice that all Indian media are under one roof. I extend my warm welcome to Shankar, my crew, Akshay, the press and my fans. I am glad my philosopher-brother Sathya Narayana Rao is here,” Rajinikanth said.

The star also said that 2.0 will prove to be a super hit. “Mark my words, 2.0 will be a super duper hit. Nearly Rs 600 crore has been invested. Subaskaran put in so much money, not because of me or Akshay. But he had confidence in Shankar,” added the star.

Rajini also praised Akshay Kumar for his hard work in the film and said that 2.0 has an international message. “2.0 is a thriller, entertainer and has an international message – that the planet is not just for human beings but other creatures also. Shankar is a gem of the Indian film industry. We need to preserve such filmmakers,” Rajinikanth concluded.
