2018 is not even started but the release date developments of big movies are already making it a high point of discussion. The biggest movie on that front is superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0. With a heavy budget, huge anticipation for its Sci-Fi story and superior VFX, the film is a grand one for which fans are waiting for a long time.
Earlier, 2.0 was schedule to release in Diwali 2017 but director Shankar wanted to have quality and top notch special effects so that he doesn’t compromise on audience experience. So, the movie got postponed to 25th January, 2018 and was clashing with Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary.
Pretty obvious, Aiyaary shifted its release date and 2.0 got a solo release which it deserves. But the situation is not yet finalized, Akshay Kumar starrer another big film Padman is now releasing on 26th January, 2018. Akshay made an official announcement on the same.
The question everyone was asking from yesterday is whether 2.0 and Padman will clash at box office? Will Akshay Kumar release both of his movies on the same date? It’s actually highly unlikely.
Reportedly, the makers of 2.0 have decided to postponed its release date again. The movie might release in April 2018. Of course, the official announcement is not yet done but that is pretty clear.
One more interesting fact is that today Varun Dhawan has announced the release date of his film with Shoojit Sircar titled October and it will hit the theaters on 13th April, 2018. So, we think 2.0’s makers will have to announce the release date slot of their movie soon so that there is no confusion and disappointment in the minds of audience as it has been already postponed twice.
The kind of gigantic this project is, it needs two open weeks to attract maximum footfalls and recover its costs. Let’s see how things pan out for 2.0 from here on.
