The much delayed film 2.0 starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar is almost ready to hit the screens. After missing earlier release deadlines due to changes in the film and incomplete VFX work, the makers now finally know when they will be able to present their ambitious project to the audience. According to reports, there are two tentative dates that the makers have in mind.

A big film like 2.0 deserves a big release and therefore, the team is looking at two big upcoming holiday weekends – 15 August, 2018 or Diwali 2018, says a report on Bollywood Hungama. Interestingly, on both these dates, while the film will enjoy a long weekend, it will not be without competition.

Now, it is highly unlikely for two film, both starring Akshay to clash with each other. If you may recall, even though Padman was ready for release, Akshay didn’t come out with a release date since 2.0 was initially set for a Republic Day 2018 release. Once the makers of the Rajinikanth film postponed the release of their film, Akshay announced Padman for January 26. That means that Diwali release may seem more suitable. However, a box office clash with an Aamir Khan film will not be a wise decision. The two films will inevitably eat into each other’s business and this should be avoided.

If you ask us, a film like 2.0 doesn’t need a holiday release. The grandiose of the project will ensure it is a hit irrespective of what it hits screens. And as the popular joke around Rajni film goes – “People release films on Eid, Christmas, Diwali and Holi since its a holiday; when Rajnikanth releases his film, it becomes a holiday!”
