Resul Pookutty earlier tweeted about the dubbing schedule of 2.0.
Enroute to a chennai to start the dubbing with our own @superstarrajini for #2.O? resul pookutty (@resulp) December 26, 2016
Resul Pookutty told iFlickz on Monday, "Yes, we would be trying out a different sound format specially modified for 2.0 in final mix of the film, the details of which I can't reveal now. We have started dubbing almost two weeks ago and 50 per cent of it is done. Rajini Sir started to dub today."
2.0, reportedly made on a budget of Rs 400 crore according to news agency IANS, is the sequel to 2010's Enthiran (Robot in Hindi), where Rajinikanth played the double roles of Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti the robot.
Rajinikanth will be reprising both roles in 2.0. Actor Akshay Kumar will also be seen in the film as the antagonist Dr Richard, who transforms into a bird-like creature after a failed experiment. 2.0 will be Akshay's debut in Tamil. The film also stars Akshay's co-star from Singh Is Bliing, Amy Jackson, as the female lead.
Rajinikanth last appeared in this year's Kabali which was a blockbuster.
Directed by Shankar, 2.0 will see Sudhanshu Pandey of Khiladi 420 and Singh Is Kinng cast as a villain. Parched actor Adil Hussain is also a part of the film, scheduled for a Diwali release.
