2.0 is one of the most-anticipated films of 2018. Speaking of Shankar’s ‘2.0’ release being shifted to April, the Kabali actor had said, “Since there are some more CG (computer graphics) work that needs to be done, it is getting delayed. We have shifted the release to April.” 2.0 was initially scheduled to release last year on Diwali but was later postponed to January 25. Due to the excessive CG work and a few re-recordings that had to be done by AR Rahman, the film was further shifted to April, although there was no official confirmation on when the film would release. However, the makers have finally announced the much-awaited Rajinikanth’s film’s release date. Also Read - Rajinikanth Shares Candid Moment With Annaatthe Director Siva in This Rare Picture
