The high octane teaser gives a glimpse into the battle between scientist Dr Vaseegaran (Rajinikanth) and Dr Richard (Akshay Kumar). The teaser begins with a large number of crows descending upon the city, and then people's mobile phones disappearing mysteriously like they were being sucked away. When the city administration meets to work out a solution. Dr Vaseegaran unveils his robot Chitti to save the day. What follows is a technological face-off between the good and bad, with a whole lot of visual effects that won't even let you blink.

The music for 2.0 has been composed by A.R. Rahman. The film which is expected to hit theatres on November 29, is being released in Hindi by Karan Johar in collaboration with Lyca Productions. "I am exceptionally proud and honoured to present the mega and mammoth cinema experience - Shankar Shanmugham's exceptional vision is soon coming your way.
