Rajinikanth starrer ‘2.0’ which was finally scheduled to release on 14 April 2018 which is Tamil New Year might just be postponed yet again to at least 2 months late of a date. 2.0 is even more postponed than Padmaavat except it is by choice, the film was suppose to release on Diwali of 2017 than the announcement came for April. The date already seemed to be in jeopardy as makers found themselves unable to release a teaser of the film for the longest time because a teaser will have to consist of a definite release date.
2.0 is the sequel to 2010 blockbuster Endhiran or Robot in Hindi. 2.0 is a bilingual being shot simultaneously in Hindi and Tamil with superstar Akshay Kumar playing the antagonist in the film. Directed by Shankar, 2.0 is the biggest film in the history of Indian cinema made on the budget of more than 350+ crores, which bypasses the budget of Baahubali any part stand alone and remarkably. It is also the first Indian film to be actually shot in 3d and not converted like most of Hollywood films. Shankar’s vision is always extreme canvas color of which is VFX.
Highest selling point of the film, VFX, is taking an awful lot of time to come out with the desired results which is why the film is being postponed like a dead leaf in breeze. Since Padmaavat has severely messed with domino of film releases already, 2.0’s uncertainty will only worse the situation for all the diaspora’s of Indian cinema. A gigantic film like 2.0 will take massive screens in Hindi and Telugu market as well which is why no other star would want to stand with his film on the same weekend. Presence of Akshay Kumar in the film is there to make sure that the film runs in the Hindi market as well as the Tamil market. Final release date of the film will be announced soon.
