In “2.0” Rajinikanth will reprise the role of ‘Dr Vaseegaran’ and ‘Chitti’ while Akshay, who is the new addition, plays a villain in the sequel of “Robot”.

“In this film I am villain. The truth is hero of ‘2.0’ is not Rajinikanth but Akshay Kumar. If I was given a choice I would have taken that character. Hats off to Akshay, he has worked so hard,” Rajinikanth told reporters here at the teaser launch of “2.0”.
