He said, "AR Rahman began the background score 6 months back since he felt the scenes were very heavy and it needed a lot of work. Now when I look at the background score, it looks like listening to Batman or Spiderman's background score. The complete credits for this project should be given to producer Subashkaran because no one else would have been ready to produce a big budget film like 2.0 except him."
