Speaking at the launch of 2.0 First Look, Director Shankar said, "If making Robo was climbing Everest then making 2.0 is like climbing Everest with an Everest on shoulder. It is such a difficult film to make and the pressure is humongous. I worked 10 times harder than 'Robo' for this '2.0'. Science-Fiction is an interesting genre. There are chances for '3.0','4.0','5.0' also if get any exciting ideas in future".
Robot fans are very excited about this announced by Shankar. 2.0 is a science fiction with the highest budget of 350 crores in Indian films. The movie is being planned for Diwali 2017 release.
