Amazon Acquires Streaming Rights to Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0’

Amazon Prime Video India has struck a deal with Lyca Productions for the streaming rights of S. Shankar’s “2.0,” starring superstar Rajinikanth. The film is a sequel to 2010 blockbuster “Enthiran.”

Amazon has put an end to its offer price of Rs 499 for the annual subscription of Amazon Prime in India, and now it is offering the subscription at Rs 999. The company has around 2 million subscriber base in India.

Budgeted at $90 million, “2.0” is India’s most expensive production to date. Rajinikanth will reprise his dual roles of the scientist Vaseegaran and the robot Chitti. Bollywood star Akshay Kumar (“Toilet: Ek Prem Katha”) will play the main antagonist. Other featured actors include Amy Jackson (“I”) and Adil Hussain (“Hotel Salvation”). The music is by Oscar-, BAFTA- and Grammy-winning composer A.R. Rahman (“Slumdog Millionaire”).
