When it was announced the sequel to the 2010 blockbuster, Enthiran, is being made, the biggest surprise was that Akshay Kumar was playing the main villain in the film clashing with Rajinikanth's Chitti/Vaseegaran. It also marks Akshay Kumar's debut in South cinema. Then we saw the first leaked picture of him in a crow-like appearance during a fight scene, and the posters also emphasised on this look of his. Needless to say, we were intrigued! 2.0 Teaser: 7 Terrific Moments in Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumars Film Promo That Caught Our Eye; Watch Video!
And then finally the first teaser of 2.0 came out after months of wait and we were blown away by the VFX (at least by Indian standards). There was a little niggle though - even though Akshay Kumar's presence as the cellphone-stealing super-power is felt throughout, there is only one proper glimpse of the actor in his human appearance (apart from a very long shot and a hologram). Even the fans are wondering why is there so less of Akshay from the film's first promo. 2.0 Teaser: Aishwarya Rai, The Thanos Connection; 5 Theories About the Plot We Can Make Out From The First Glimpse of Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumars Film.

ICYMI, here's the teaser of 2.0 -
Peeps, we know it is disappointing to see so less of Akshay Kumar in the teaser, but hey's it's just the teaser! We will have a trailer coming out soon and that will surely have more of Akshay Kumar's interesting crow-villain.
2.0 is directed by S Shankar, with music by AR Rahman. The movie also stars Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey and Adil Hussain and is scheduled to release on November 29.
