Now that January 2018’s first big-ticket release 2: 0 is ready, admirers of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar hoping to see the two iconic superstars doing an Uttar-Dakshin live are in a for a disappointment.
Very reliable sources from the 2: 0 team say Rajini and Akshay won’t be doing much combined promotions for the film.Apparently the two superstars would rather halve their collective star power and promote the film individually.
The first casualty of this urge to abstain from a public display of shared camaraderie is the 2: 0 music launch in Dubai on October 27.
Sources say Shankar is “going crazy” trying to convince his two superstar-heroes to attend the historic event to be held at the famed Burj Khalifa.
So far Shankar has had no luck.
“Rajini and Akshay are adamant. They’d rather promote the film separately than be seen together. Their fan-following is completely segregated . So no point in a collective promotion,” says the source.
Staying separated in their stardom…we don’t know whose idea this is. But we suspect it is the master-strategist Akshay Kumar’s work.While the superstars plot their collective thoughts on their individual appearances, director Shankar bites his nails in suspense over the fate of his ambitious music launch at the tallest building in the world.
If he only he knew our actors have egos even taller than the Burj Khalifa.
