The film also features Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Amy Jackson in key roles. Music maestro AR Rahman has scored the film.

If the initial reviews are anything to go by, it seems the fans of Thalaiva are super impressed with Shankar's directorial, with many hailing it as one of the best films Indian cinema ever produced. Calling Shankar a "genius", a social media user wrote, "Shankar sir is visionary of epic proportion."

2.0 has, however, been a long time coming. The film, which was originally set to arrive in cinemas last year on Diwali, was later pushed to a December 2017 debut. It was once again moved a month further to January 2018, in order to allow more time for post-production. After too much rescheduling, the Rajinikanth-Akshay starrer finally releases today.

At Rs 543 crore, this Rajinikanth film is more expensive than several successful Hollywood VFX classics like Deadpool (USD 58 million), X-Men (USD 75 million) and Batman (USD 35 million).
