It’s Akshay Kumar’s birthday but we should be grateful to him for rewarding us with a gift on his special day. And the gift is a new poster of his character from his upcoming film 2.0, co-starring Rajinikanth. Akshay stars as the antagonist in 2.0 and appears fierce in the poster in a rugged jacket while he displays a ruthless expression.
In his tweet, Akshay explained that his role of Dr. Richard in 2.0 is his most powerful character so far. Dr. Richard, in Akshay’s words, is a dark superhero for those who don’t have a voice. “Here’s a special birthday treat for all my fans. Sharing with you my most powerful character & one which has probably stayed with me for the longest time. I am the dark superhero for those who don’t have a voice! HUMANS BEWARE!,” Akshay tweeted along with the poster, which occupied the top spot on the trends list on Twitter soon after being made available online.
Be scared! Be very, very scared!
Karan Johar, whose Dharma Productions will be presenting the Hindi version of the film, also shared another poster of Akshay. It’s equally intense!
The teaser of the much-awaited film, meanwhile, will release on September 13. 2.0 will mark Akshay’s debut in the Tamil film industry while it is also his first film with Rajinikanth. The film co-stars Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey.
2.0 is a sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran (Robot) which also featured Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Rajinikanth will reprise his role as scientist Vaseegaran while Amy Jackson appears in a supporting role. AR Rahman is responsible for the music of the film.
Directed by Shankar Shanmugham, 2.0 is scheduled to release on November 29.
