The release of Shankar’s magnum opus 2.0 is likely to get postponed to April. Reports suggest that there continues to be a lot of work left in the post-production part of the film.
The teaser, which was scheduled to release this month, and the trailer launch in December are also likely to get cancelled. However, Raju Mahalingam, creative head of Lyca productions, who is bankrolling the film, tells Silverscreen: “We cannot comment now. We will come up with an official clarification about the release date soon.”
Considering the film involves a lot of CGI works, it is likely to have affected the post-production work.
The speculations about the postponement of the release of 2.0 started when Akshay Kumar, who is part of the film, confirmed the release of his next film, Padman for Republic Day weekend. Incidentally, 2.0 was also scheduled to hit the screens at the same time. While 2.0‘s team said that there has been no change in the release date, Akshay later clarified that if Shankar’s film were to release in January, then he would change Padman‘s release date.
