The makers of the Rajnikanth-Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 have been uncertain about the release of the movie. It’s been in the post-production phase since quite some time.
Now, if a few media speculations are to be believed, the movie directed by Shankar has a new release date. It looks like Lyca Productions is planning to release the movie on Diwali this year. If that is to happen, 2.0 will clash with Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan. The movies stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in prominent roles.
According to the speculations, Lyca seems to have discussed the issue with Aamir Khan. However, Aamir is of the opinion that a Diwali release would be the best suited time to release Thugs Of Hindostan. Hence he is sticking to the original release date, which is Diwali. While that seemed to have been the end of it, a media source further clarified saying:
While it would be interesting to see how each movie performs, Lyca Productions is determined to avoid the clash. They reportedly feel that it would hinder the potential of both the movies. Hence the makers of 2.0 will try convincing Aamir Khan once again, it seems. However it has been confirmed by Shankar that trailer of the 2.0 will be out soon.
Whereas, Rajnikanth’s Kaala, is all set to hit the screens on April 27. Directed by Pa Ranjith, the film also stars Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar and Samuthirakani in the lead roles.
