CONFIRMED! ‘2.0’ to clash with ‘Padman’, official announcement soon

Fans of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar alike were eagerly waiting with bated breath for the release date of the highly anticipated ‘2.0’. The wait seems to be getting over as the release date of the film is now confirmed!

There were rumours that the film is being postponed to April 13 due to impending work on post production. However, turns out it is not at all true. Trade analyst Sreedhar Pillai, in his tweet has confirmed the development from his source close to Lyca Productions.

“#2PointO Update – As per sources close 2 @LycaProductions, 3D sci-fi thriller is on schedule 4 a Jan 25 Release. Official announcement soon!” [sic] he wrote. (Also Read: ‘2.0’ beats ‘Bahubali’ to become the most expensive film ever made in India)

An official announcement from the makers is however still awaited. Interestingly, the film is clashing with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Padman’ that is based on Arunachalam Murugunantham. So it will be Akshay vs Akshay at the box office! While it is being said that ‘2.0’ will do a great business down South, ‘Padman’ will be popular among the masses in the North.
