It is finally happening! The costliest film of India 2.0 is now releasing in April 2018 and to be specific, the date will be 27th April, 2018. After the gigantic storm and change Baahubali 2 brought this year, there are massive hopes from 2.0 as well.
The release date of 2.0 has been changed quite a few times. Earlier, it was scheduled to release in Diwali of 2017 but then postponed to 25th January 2018 and again got postponed. The makers have now releases an official statement to make things clear.
Starring superstar Rajinikanth and Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, the buzz for 2.0 is already extreme and it is surely going to break many records along with creating many. Coincidentally, it is also releasing on 27th April, Baahubali 2 also released on 28th April this year. The trade is sure that 2.0 will also smash the records and shake the box office for good.
Now, an interesting turn of event has also happened. Hollywood biggie and you can also say, one of the biggest Hollywood films of 2018, Avengers: Infinity War is going to clash with 2.0 in India. This biggie is having a worldwide release on 4th May 2018 but just like The Jungle Book (2016), Disney is releasing Avengers: Infinity War a week before in India.
Now, you might think this won’t affect 2.0’s business much but it’s not that easy. It has now become evident that Indian crowd is increasingly giving massive response to Hollywood movies and with the advent of Netflix and Amazon, the craze is huge for western movies.
Marvel and Avengers universe superhero films have a monumental fan base in India and when all of these superheroes are coming in a single film, you can expect phenomenal footfalls in theaters. If both the movies are going ahead with the same release date, 2.0 will be suffering to some extent due to Avengers: Infinity War.
2.0 has an enormous budget for which it needs a solo release. Although 2.0 will be earning way more than Avengers: Infinity War in India, the collections of 2.0 might have been more. However, the makers of 2.0 have still not revealed the exact release date and even Disney might postpone or prepone the release as there are 4-5 months remaining.
Well, everyone is expecting 2.0 will be making huge waves in Indian cinema and will be making us proud on a global level, just like Baahubali 2. Keep following us for all the latest developments of Bollywood.
