Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar's 2.0 was scheduled to release on 25 January 2018. However after Akshay's Padman was preponed to Republic Day, it was speculated that 2.0 will be postponed to 13 April 2018.
Now the producers have claimed that film will arrive the original date. Lyca Productions Creative Head Raju Mahalnigam told Scroll.in, “As of now, the release date of the film is January 25. No change in that. The movie will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, and in foreign languages after the Indian release."
This will be a very interesting scenario if 2.0 and Padman clashed at the box office as both featured Akshay Kumar. Though the industry sources have claimed that 2.0 will definitely be postponed due to extensive post-production work. Meanwhile, mid-April spot has already been booked by Varun Dhawan's October.
