All the Rajinikanth fans have to wait a bit longer to see their star on-screen as the makers have decided to postpone the release of the film once again. The film was expected to release earlier in December this year but was later shifted to January 26 because of some post-production work. The makers, however, have changed the release date of the film once again and it will hit screens now in April 2018.
The trade analyst Taran Adarsh also tweeted about the release date and his tweet said that the film will release on April 27 but the official statement from the producers did not mention any date. “#2Point0 to release on 27 April 2018… Stars Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar… Directed by Shankar,” he tweeted. Adarsh also indicated that film could repeat the history of success just like Baahubali 2 this year. The Lyca Production issued an official statement on the release of the film, which reads that “Lyca Productions – Superstar Rajinikanth – Akshay Kumar – Shankar magnum opus SciFi action thriller 2.0 to be screened worldwide on April 2018. Nation’s costliest 3D film starring Superstar Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, directed by Shankar, music by AR Rahman. The high-tech post-production works are fully geared and the team is all set for the release schedule”.
The decision of shifting the release date of 2.0 comes after Akshay Kumar announced the release date of Padman on next year’s Republic day. Kumar had recently revealed his fans that his film will hit screens on January 26, 2018, which had also become a question for all that would be Akshay Kuman vs Akshay Kumar at the box office in the Republic day weekend. The big clash has been averted. Akshay has said on the clash in an interview to Mumbai Mirror that “While PadMan is a film that I have produced, 2.0 belong to Shankar, Rajinikanth and Lyca Productions. They will decide whether they want to release the film on Republic Day. If they do, I will postpone Padman and if they don’t, I will go ahead”.
