Superstar Rajinikanth and Sensational Director Shankar’s 2.0 will not release until January 2019 and the Republic Day Holiday Period of 2019 is the new target. This long delay and two back to back disasters of Rajinikanth are worrying the trade big time. On the other side, reports are coming in that the movie budget may be increased by yet another 100 Crore. This will be a major cause of worry for the makers as the movie has already consumed 400 Crore and is the costliest film in Indian Cinema.
On the other side, there are rumours that the Telugu buyer of the project is keen on exiting from the project. The hype and expectations on the film are so high as the film comes from the stable of the duo which has delivered films like Shivaji and Robot which were blockbusters in the past. But then, these inordinate delays are ensuring that the interest on the film is reducing. Buzz is that Rajinikanth will be seen in a Triple role in the film even though it is not officially confirmed. It has to be seen if the duo will pull out something spectacular to take everyone by surprise. 2.0 is the Part Two of Rajinikanth and Shankar’s 2010 Blockbuster, Robot.
