Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar are two of the biggest superstars in the country. Director Shankar not only aims to maximise their talent but also their presence in 2.0.

Buzz has it that 2.0 could see Kumar in 12 avatars, while Rajinikanth could have five, reported by DNA newspaper.

The makers have already revealed one look of Kumar where he is a crow.

According to news reports, Rajinikanth is playing the role of a scientist, the creator of Chitti, two dwarves, a baddie and Chitti. In the first film Robot, Rajinikanth played the two titular roles of scientist Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti.

If might be recalled that in Robot, Chitti goes rogue and creates hundreds of clones. 

If the buzz is true, we wonder if the 12 avatars of Kumar are a creation of his principal character Dr Richard?

Buzz has it that 2.0 is being made at a budget of a record Rs400 crore, while the satellite rights of the film were sold for a record Rs110 crore to Zee Network.

The film is set to be released on Diwali, 18 October.
