'Aithe 2.0' is the reboot version of ‘Aithe’. But this film is not that much silent like ‘Aithe’. This is with a techno thriller concept. Today’s youth are spending too much time on their phones and laptops. They are spending more time online and they are not aware of surroundings. Someone will watch them. Who is it? The film depicts that how spending hours in social networking sites will lead to problems. There is a good message for youth in this film. The film is being made as ‘Aithe 2.0’ in Telugu and as ‘Pirates 1.0’ in Hindi. Regular shooting will start from today. The film will be shot in and around Hyderabad for 45 days.”
