Superstar Rajinikanth and Sensational Director Shankar’s 2.0 seems to be in for yet another postponement. This time they say the movie will not release until January 2019. This long delay and two back to back disasters of Rajinikanth are worrying the trade big time. We are told that the Telugu distributor of the film, Sunil is keen on backing out of the film deal. He purchased the Andhra Pradesh and Nizam rights of the film for a whopping 80 Crore and paid 20 Crore advance to the makers.
These postponements mean that he is losing big money on interest and so Sunil wants to back out. 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. The movie budget has crossed more than 400 Crore and is the costliest film ever made in the history of Indian Cinema. This is the first time British Beauty Amy Jackson is romancing the Superstar. Oscar Awardee AR Rahman is composing music for the film. He scored music for Robot as well. Buzz is that Rajinikanth will be seen in a Triple role in the film even though it is not officially confirmed. 2.0 will be high on action, sources within the movie team tell us.
