We had already reported that Amy Jackson plays a robot in superstar Rajinikanth’s magnum opus 2.o. While the actor had denied in several of her interviews that she doesn’t play a robot, the leak of her latest still as a robot has raised quite a lot of eyebrows. It could also be possible that just like Rajinikanth, who plays dual role in the movie, Amy might also be essaying double role and one of which could be the robot. In the leaked still, it appears that Amy is seen driving a truck as a robot. It is being rumoured that she plays an android robot in the film.

“No! Definitely not! I cannot say anything more about the role. It is quite a challenging one, and if I talk about it, I would give away the entire plot. All I can say is, it’s something I have never done before,” she was quoted as saying in an article Times of India earlier. We have to wait more to find out what she’s doing in that robot costume.

A sequel to Enthiran, the film also stars Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain. While Akshay Kumar will be seen playing an ornithologist, Rajinikanth will be seen as a scientist and a robot. The project is bankrolled by Lyca Productions. The film’s satellite rights across all languages were recently bagged by Zee Network for a whopping Rs 100 crore, making it the highest amount paid for an Indian film. Tipped to be the most expensive Indian film being made on a budget of Rs 450 crore, 2.o is slated for release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi next year in a record number of screens worldwide.
