The grand audio launch of Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar-starrer, 2.0 is set to begin in Dubai on Friday and here are the latest updates. Director Shankar, composer AR Rahman, and star Amy Jackson are all present for the glitzy affair and will be joined by many others from the film fraternity. We know that Rana Daggubati and Karan Johar are set to host the event and that AR Rahman will be performing live. The latest update is that Rainikanth’s son-in-law and actor Dhanush has already landed in Dubai to attend the event. He is sporting his look for upcoming gangster drama, Vada Chennai.

Suriya, his actor wife Jyothika, and Karthi have also landed in Dubai for the event. Many pictures from the rehearsal session of 126 Symphony have also surfaced online. The stage looks impressive, and the team has put immense effort into creative marketing prior to the launch.

From skydivers holding a poster of 2.0 mid air, right above Palm Jumeira, to huge billboards advertising the event, a lot of thought has gone into it. So far, the makers haven’t announced if the launch will be streamed live online. Fans from Dubai are keeping others up to date via Twitter. Two songs each from the Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions will be released online at 11:30 pm on Friday, while a third song will be release at a later time.

The movie is bankrolled by Lyca Produtions, and is said to have been made on Rs 400 crore budget. 2.0 happens to be the first Indian film to have been shot in 3D. There are a lot of expectations pinned on director Shankar’s film starring superstar Rajinikanth. This movie, which is reportedly not a sequel to Enthiran is slated to release on January 25, 2018.
