Robot 2.0 is billed as the most expensive Indian film and will be produced by Lyca Productions. It’s already confirmed that Amy Jackson will also be a part of the film. It will be interesting to see if she plays another robot like ‘Chitti’.
According to some reports, there will another lead actress in the film and the makers are still looking for an A-list actress for the part. AR Rahman will compose the music, Nirav Shah will be the cinematographer and Sean Foot will be a part of the technical team.
