This past weekend saw the coming together of mega superstars of Indian cinema- Rajinikanth, A.R. Rahman and Akshay Kumar, among other cast and crew of 2.0. The much awaited audio launch, held at Burj Park, overlooking the Burj Khalifa, saw a gathering of over 6000 people, all who came to witness the magnitude of the grand event, and see their favourite superstars in action.
The event kick-started with a live concert from the Oscar Award winner, AR Rahman, who has also composed the music for the film. Following the spectacle, lead actress, Amy Jackson shook her leg to a few dance numbers dedicated to Thalaivar aka Rajinikanth.
Adding to the excitement of all the Akshay Kumar fans in the house, the superstar then made a grand entry, setting the stage on fire. Expressing his joy of working with Thalaivar, Akshay took the mic and said, “Rajini sir is the real superstar. I would like to thank Shankar sir for giving me the opportunity of working with a legend like Rajinikanth. I could’ve never imagined that I will get a chance to work in such a big and costly film like 2.0. I have done 130 films (in Bollywood). 2.0 was my 131st film. I can only say that during the making of those 130 films, I got to learn little from every film, but I was learning throughout the shooting of this film.
The event was hosted in three languages, Hindi by Karan Johar, Telugu by Rana Daggubati, and Tamil by a popular south figure, RJ Balaji. Yes, we told you it was huge!
The event went on to showcase, dance performances by choreographer Bosco Martis and his troupe, who enthralled the audience, as they danced to director Shankar and AR Rahman’s hit musical collaboration.
However, the star of the show turned out to be the specular AR Rahman, who performed tunes of the film with an orchestra of 50 people, flown down especially for the event from Macedonia.
If this event wasn’t the biggest you’ve seen till date, we don’t know what is! Did you attend it? Tell us what you thought!
