Rajinikanth announced the release date of the mega budget film during his recent interaction with fans in Chennai.
Chennai: The much-awaited confirmation has finally arrived from the horse's mouth.
Rajinikanth during his recent interactions with fans in Chennai on Saturday has finally announced that his upcoming film ‘2.0’ will release on April 14, the Tamil New Year.
“The film is getting delayed because of CG work. Only after it is completed, AR Rahman can finish re-recording. So we had to postpone the release date from January 26 to April 14,” Rajinikanth was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
The makers has sparked off speculation that the film would clash with Telugu films, Mahesh Babu starrer 'Bharat Ane Nenu' and Allu Arjun’s 'Naa Peru Surya' on April 27, by only revealing that '2.0' would release in April.
The producers of both the Telugu films had earlier expressed their displeasure over the reported clash, and took up the issue with the concerned film bodies.
The makers were unhappy about the film release in April, but they can at least heave a sigh of relief that the mega budget movie won’t directly clash with the two Telugu films.
Rajinikanth also raved about the project, saying, “I am not sure, will a film like 2.0 will ever be made again in India. The content of this film will be talked about for a long period of time.”
Directed by Shankar, '2.0', reportedly being made at a budget of Rs 400 crores, also stars Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead.
