Top Actors Rejected Akshay Kumar’s Role In Robot 2.0 Movie
Director Shankar said that Arnold and Kamal couldn’t come on board due to their work commitment, following which he narrated the script to Akshay, who readily liked it. Made on a budget of Rs 500 crore the film is set for release on November 29. Previoulsy, Akshay about his role had said, “most powerful character and one which has probably stayed with me for the longest time,”, adding, ” I am the dark superhero for those who don’t have a voice! Humans beware”. The film is made on a budget of Rs 400 crore and a source said, “It (the budget) is not all those ridiculous figures being thrown around by people who have no idea about such things. The actual overall budget of 2.0 is Rs 400 crores, and that too after the VFX was done all over again since the original VFX was of very poor quality. Also, the film is far more expensive than the usual 3D films in India. Most films in this country using that format are first shot in 2D and then converted to 3D. However, 2.0 was shot in 3D (sic).”
