The Cellular Operators Association of India, COAI, has filed a complaint against Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0.
In the letter of complaint sent to the Central Board of Film Certification and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, COAI has accused the filmmakers of “falsely depicting mobile phones and mobile towers as harmful to living creatures and the environment including birds and human beings.”
Both the films are directed by S Shankar. Akshay’s character is of an ornithologist, a researcher who deals with different species of birds, who starts a full-fledged war against the mobile phones.
Akshay’s Tamil debut, sees him in the role of an antagonist, Dr Richard/Crowman. While Rajinikanth is seen as a superhuman. Akshay’s character is determined to kill every person on the earth who uses a mobile phone.
The film that reportedly made at a budget of Rs 543 crore is considered the most expensive film of India made in 3D.
Experts say, Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar’s film box office collection may take over Baahubali 2.
The release date of 2.0 has been rescheduled several times and it is finally set to open in theatres on November 29.
