Official: Release date of Rajinikanth’s 2.0 announced
Indian cinema audience have been waiting for the release of Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 for nearly two years now. The movie was initially planned for release last Diwali but later saw multiple postponing due to extensive VFX works. On Tuesday, director Shankar announced that the movie will hit screens worldwide on November 29. The ace filmmaker has tweeted,
“Hi everyone.. atlast the vfx companies promised the final delivery date of the vfx shots. The movie will release on nov 29th 2018.”
2.0 is the sequel to Enthiran aka Robot, which was released back in 2010. The movie also directed by Shankar was a massive hit across the country. This time the expectations are multifold as two of Indian cinema’s biggest superstars, Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, are coming together for the first time. While Rajinikanth appears in a dual role as scientist Vaseegaran and the robot Chitti, Akshay Kumar essays the antagonist’s role. Amy Jackson plays the female lead.
Shankar has scripted the movie jointly with Jeyamohan. Many internationally acclaimed technicians are associated with 2.0. AR Rahman is composing the music and Resul Pookkutty is in charge of the sound design. Legacy Effects, who have worked in movies like Avengers, Jurassic Park, Iron Man etc are working on the animatronics department. National award-winner Srinivas Mohan is supervising the VFX works.
With 2.0 scheduled for release on November 29, filmmakers across the country will be planning their releases accordingly to avert a box office clash with this biggie.
