A section of media has reported that actor Rajinikanth will be seen playing two dwarves in his upcoming sci-fi action entertainer 2.o.

“We have no idea how such baseless reports crop up. 2.o is only based on Vaseegaran (scientist Rajinikanth), Chitti (Robot) and Akshay Kumar, an evil scientist. Besides these three characters, Sudhanshu Pandey plays the son of dead scientist Bohra (played by Danny Denzongpa in the first part) while Amy Jackson’s role will be a surprise. However, Rajinikanth playing two dwarves is completely false,” says a reliable source to HT.

The source adds, “Akshay Kumar’s destructive activities would cause the necessity of bringing back Chitti, which was dismantled in the first part. The film will offer a visually stunning experience for the audiences. Aaron Crippen of The Dark Knight fame and Kenny Bates of Transformers have choreographed two high-octane action sequences for the film.”

We also hear that nearly 90% of the shoot has been completed with only one song and a few minor scenes left to be shot. AR Rahman is planning to compose symphony orchestra for the background score and our sources say that the composer will commence re-recording from August of this year.
