‘2.0’ was going to hit the screens on 27th April, but Rajinikanth’s ‘Kaala Karikaalan’ release is announced then.
Mumbai: Director Shankar, who is helming two major films, 2.0’ and ‘Indian 2’, has announced that ‘Indian 2’ starring Kamal Haasan will go on floors soon, but nobody is sure when Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer ‘2.0’ will release.
While reports stated that ‘2.0’ might be an Independence Day or Diwali release, Bollywood Life is pretty confident that the movie is a Diwali release.
But how can a movie release without any drama this year? So the portal goes on to report that Aamir Khan has booked the date for his ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’, and Lyca Productions obviously wants to avoid the clash because they reportedly feel the movies won’t be able to show their potential on the screen if there is a clash.
A source told the portal, “The makers want to release ‘2.0’ during Diwali, so they tried to discuss things with Aamir Khan as his movie ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is scheduled to release on the same day. However, Aamir said a resounding no when they first approached him. The actor feels Diwali is the perfect time to release ‘Thugs’ and hence, he is holding on to the date.”
But the source further clarified that Rajini intervened, saying, “After Rajinikanth made a call, the talks have resumed and both Lyca and Aamir along with Yash Raj Films are figuring if something can be done.”
Adil Hussain, who is also part of the film, is completely clueless about the release date. In a twitter chat, when asked about ‘2.0’s release date, the actor mentioned, “No idea.. Also it is a Faulty Statement to say my Movie. It's @superstarrajini 's movie. I am a part of it. We are all Dwarf in front of him.” Here’s his tweet:
