The release of Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0’ has been postponed due to pending work on “world class VFX”. The film will now release in theatres during the Republic Day weekend next year.
“We are working on world class VFX, and it is taking time. An extensive portion of the visual effects work will be carried out in the USA, and our team is working in full swing now. So, we have zeroed in on January 25th, 2018 as the worldwide release date” Raju Mahalingam of Lyca Productions said.
The sequel to the 2010 film ‘Enthiran’ also features Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who plays the lead antagonist.
The postponement of ‘Robot 2.0’ sets up a direct Diwali clash between Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again and Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar.
For the Republic Day weekend next year, two films have already been announced – Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Chandamama Door Ke. Robot 2.0 is the third and biggest film for the week.
