After 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar announced the new release date of his upcoming film PADMAN i.e January 26 2018, we now hear that the highly anticipated Shankar directed sci-fi film 2.0 starring Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumar as the antagonist which was scheduled to release on January 25 in next year might get shifted to April 2018.
According to the report in Mumbai Mirror, the reason for change in 2.0 postpone has been cited to plenty of work in special effects area of the film. However any official announcement from the makers of 2.0 is yet to come.
However this isn’t the first time 2.0’s release date has been shifted. Earlier the film was supposed to release in Diwali this year along with GOLMAAL RETURNS and SECRET SUPERSTAR but got postponed to Republic Day because of their unfinished work on VFX.
Now reportedly the film will not be able to meet the Republic Day release deadline and might release in April 2018. It seems like the makers of PADMAN and 2.0 have interchanged their respective film’s release date.
2.0 is the sequel to Rajinikanth-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer ROBOT while Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte starrer PADMAN is based on Twinkle Khanna's book, The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad, inspired from the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham.
