The movie was expected to be a grand attraction this Diwali and was poised to clash with Aamir Khan’s SECRET SUPERSTAR and Ajay Devgn’s 4th series of GOLMAAL – GOLMAAL AGAIN. But now the makers of 2.0 have postponed the release of their film to 25th January 2018. It will be a grand Republic Day attraction next year.
Raju Mahalingam, COO of Lyca Productions the producers of 2.0 made the announcement on social media saying, “Our most ambitious project, Shankar's 2.0,shifts to 25 Jan 2018. It moves from earlier Diwali release to achieve world class standards in VFX.'
We all were wondering who will blink first in the clash of Rajinikanth v/s Devgn v/s Aamir and the superstar has moved back owing to VFX.
2.0 is sequel to Rajinikanth and Shankar's mega sci fi blockbuster ENTHIRAN (ROBOT in Hindi). The sequel is reported to being made with budget of whopping Rs 350 Cr. Akshay Kumar plays the antagonist while Amy Jackson is the female lead. 2.0 will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages.
