Produced on an estimated budget of ₹543 crore (US$76 million), 2.0 is the most expensive Indian film. Pre-production work for the film began in June 2015. Jackson joined the project the same year in October. After negotiations with numerous actors, including Aamir Khan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, failed to materialize, Kumar was signed on as a primary persona. Principal photography was launched at AVM Studios in December 2015; the first schedule was filmed at EVP World. Scenes were primarily shot in India, particularly in Chennai’s Madras Boat Club and Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru Statdium. Some were set in exotic locations by the use of visual effects. Filming was completed by August 2017. It was released worldwide on 29 November 2018.
