Just a day before of its big release, Akshay Kumar and Rajnikant starrer 2.0 is facing legal trouble due to its anti-mobile and anti-mobile network content. The Cellular Operators Association Of India filed a complaint against the makers of 2.0 for supporting an anti-scientific attitude towards mobile phones.
Akshay Kumar is playing the role of an Ornithologist who turns out as a villain in the film. He blames mobile phone users for harming birds and animals through its harmful radiations. The complained filed against its makers blamed them for wrongly depicting mobile phones and mobile towers as harmful to living beings and the environment.
Moreover, they also requested CBFC to remove the certification from 2.0 including the teaser and trailer. They also demanded that the movie must be suspended until the requests have not fulfilled.
Alongside, 2.0 has broken Baahubali 2’s record prior to its release with its bumper advanced bookings. The tickets of the first two days shows have already been sold out in some cinema houses. The trade analysts believe that 2.0 will shatter the Thugs Of Hindostan’s records made on its opening day. The Shankar’s film is expected to earn Rs 70 crore on its opening day.
The sequel of 2010 film Robot which had Rajnikant and Aishwarya Rai in lead roles, 2.0 has also been rescheduled a number of times due to its technical obstacles. The movie is releasing on 29th November.
Akshay Kumar told IANS that “There is a moment in the story that emphasizes the other living creatures on planet earth. It says that the planet not only belongs to the human race but also to animals and birds. Though animals and plants cannot raise their voice against human beings, they have the right to live. So, do not spoil the mother nature,”
