Directed by S. Shankar and starring Amy Jackson, Akshay Kumar and superstar Rajinikanth, the film will be shot in 3D and will release in Tamil and Hindi. The film’s music will be composed by double Academy award-winner A.R Rahman.
As Robot 2 went on the floors, Akshay Kumar took to social media to share the news with his fans when he tweeted, “Ending the year on a high note. Super excited to be a part of Robot 2 with the one & only @superstarrajini sir!” The movie is also believed to be the most expensive Indian film, being made at a budget of over Rs 250 crore.
Akshay Kumar will be welcoming 2016 with the release of “Airlift”, an edge-of-the-seat thriller based on a real incident which occurred in Kuwait in the 1990s during the time of Gulf War. An Indian businessman, Ranjit Katyal (played by Akshay Kumar) helped in evacuating 1,70,000 Indians, safely, back to their home country at the time of the crisis.
