Undoubtedly, the Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar-starrer 2.0 is one of the most expensive and anticipated films of the year 2018. Due to the film having super-heavy VFX, the makers strayed away from releasing the sci-fi magnum opus this year itself and chose to release it in April 2017, which gave way to Akki’s PadMan, which is set to release on Republic Day 2018.
Given that April is a fairly profitable time of the year, considering the examination season is almost done with by then, and as a way of celebrating the year-end, many students tend to catch on to their favourite movies. So, it was no surprise that this years’ April release, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, went on to cause a STORM at the Box Office!
And now, we have all the reason to believe that the makers of 2.0 are planning to walk on the same path as Rajamouli’s directorial by releasing their magnum opus in April 2018.
Wondering why do we believe that? A Bengaluru-based distributor says, “The next available big date for release is April 14, which coincides with the celebration of Tamil New Year. The examination season will be more or less over. So, the makers are apparently eyeing the holiday season for the release of 2.0. The makers seem to have understood the potential of releasing the film in April as family audience will be looking out opportunities to watch good movies in theatres. So, it will be a good decision to release 2.0 in April. Let’s not forget the film is rich in VFXs and kids will love to watch such film. Baahubali makers clearly understood this and released the second part in April.”
Now, it’s just a matter of that we will know the final release date.
