Shankar’s mega budget sci-fi film 2.0 is one of the biggest films of 2017 after Baahubali 2. The movie is the spiritual successor to Enthiran. We will get to see the same characters of Enthiran as Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti the Robot again in 2.0 but this time the antagonist will be played by Bollywood biggie Akshay Kumar.
Akshay plays Dr. Richards, an ornithologist who turns into a crow as a result of a wrong experiment. Actually, the fans were too stunned and impressed when the first look of Akshay’s character was released in 2016! The actor also admitted to having applied such make-up for the first time for a role in his 25-year-old career.

Usually, Akshay Kumar charges a large sum along with the film’s profits. But this time he has charged inordinate remuneration, the report says.
According to the news on Tollywood.net, the actor charged Rs 2 crore per day. When it was calculated, it came to up to larger sum than Superstar’s remuneration.
Makers and technicians haven’t spoken up regarding this issue but inside sources are confirming this – Akshay Kumar was paid more than Rajinikanth.
