South filmmaker Shankar’s 2.0 , which stars Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, has constantly stayed in the news since the time it went on floors in 2015. However, the wait to see our favourite actors in action keeps on getting longer as this magnum opus’ release date has been postponed several times. If the latest trade reports are anything to go by, it seems the sci-fi is all set to lock horns with Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30, as both of them are slated to release on the Republic Day weekend next year.
The makers of the latter, which is based on mathematician Anand Kumar’s life, pushed the film by two months. Earlier, it was scheduled to release in November this year. Says a source, “The 2.0 team had to majorly work on the VFX because they weren’t entirely happy with the first copy. That’s also the reason they haven’t released any promo officially. But they are eyeing the Republic Day weekend next year.” So if that happens, it will be a clash between the two real-life neighbours — Akki and HR – at the BO!
