Akshay will be playing the main antagonist in the Shankar-directed movie.
“Evil has a new face! #2Point0 #3Diwali2017 #2Point0FLLaunch,” the actor captioned his character poster.
The movie also marks Akshay’s first project in Tamil cinema.
The poster has the 49-year-old actor in a devil look with long sharp eyebrows, grey hair, yellow lenses and black nails.
“Robot 2.0” will release next year on Diwali.
