Just a little while ago the teaser of Rajinikanth’s Kaala was leaked hours before its official launch, the teaser of the much-anticipated sci-fi film 2.0 seems to have met the same fortune. A minute-and-a-half teaser trailer for the film has been leaked on to the internet, which has gone viral within hours of its upload.
Leaking content online before the official release should not be TOLERATED or ENCOURAGED ! This is a heartless act ignoring hard work, efforts and sentiments of the makers for few seconds of excitement !!! #BeAshamed #StopPiracy #StopMisusingDigitalMedium

Fans all around have condemned the piracy.
This is the second such leak within this week to attack a Rajinikanth-starrer film. Hours before the scheduled launch, a rough version of the Kaala teaser found its way online. The leak put the producers in a fix who decided to release it earlier than the planned time. This, though, might not be possible with 2.0 as the VFX for the film still needs to be finished.
2.0 marks the Kollywood debut of Akshay Kumar, who is in a negative role in what is hyped as Indian Cinema’s most expensive film. The film has all the elements of Endhiran or Robot, the first part of the franchise, but on a scale and ratio that has never been brought before the domestic audience by an Indian production.
The film is directed by Shankar and has Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Amy Jackson in lead roles. AR Rahman is the composer of the music in the film.
Speaking about working with Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar had told in an interview, “Once, we were just sitting on the set, waiting for the next shot and he brushed some dirt off his pants. The entire unit was awestruck by how stylishly he did it. Everything he does is so stylish. I even enjoyed getting punched by him,”
Rajinikanth’s 2.0, which was initially scheduled for Diwali 2017 release has been delayed twice so far. The S Shankar-directed film is slated for an April release.
