2.0 release postponed; Akshay Kumar’s Padman likely to release in January!
A lot of speculations are doing the rounds about superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.0. The makers had announced the movie to be a Republic day weekend release in 2018 but it now seems like the dates will be pushed further. The movie requires extensive post-production works and a hurried work might reflect badly in the quality of the film. Though official announcement is yet to be made, it is almost certain that the release date will be postponed.
Reportedly, the pending VFX and animatronic works are currently being handled by various organisations from more than 10 countries. Legacy Effects, Tau Films, Quantum FX, Double Negative and national award-winning VFX supervisor Srinivas Mohan are all involved in the post-production process.
If 2.0 is postponed, Akshay Kumar’s Hindi film Padman will release in that slot in January. He is waiting for a word from 2.0’s producers Lyca Productions to plan the release of Padman accordingly.
If 2 Point 0 is releasing on January 25, Padman will be pushed else it will release as per the schedule.
2.0 is unarguably the most anticipated Indian film of 2018. Akshay Kumar is making his South Indian debut by playing the antagonist’s role in the movie. Expectations are sky-high for this sci-fi extravaganza, which is the sequel to 2010 blockbuster Enthiran.
Lyca Productions is investing a mammoth budget of Rs 450 crores, which is the highest for any Indian film currently under production. Following the grand audio launch in Dubai, the makers were planning to host a posh function in Hyderabad for the teaser release. Since the release date is being postponed, the teaser and trailer release will also be pushed.
