Recently there was news that Rajinikanth starrer '2.0' makers had indefinitely postponed the film's release. Now, Rajinikanth's 'Kaala Karikaalan' will release on April 27 instead of '2.0'. On the other hand, director of '2.0' Shankar, is putting in all efforts to complete the final edit of the movie and turn it into a visual masterpiece. Recent reports suggested that the makers were planning to release '2.0' either on Independence Day or Diwali 2018. But now, according to reports in a leading entertainment portal it has been confirmed that the makers are planning on releasing the film on Diwali.
However, there's another Bollywood film that's already set to release on Diwali. And it happens to be none other than Aamir Khan starrer 'Thugs of Hindostan'. A source in the know revealed, “The makers want to release '2.0' during Diwali, so they tried to discuss things with Aamir Khan as his movie – 'Thugs of Hindostan' is scheduled to release on the same day. However, Aamir said a resounding no when they first approached him. The actor feels Diwali is the perfect time to release 'Thugs' and hence, he is holding on to the date.” The source continued, “After Rajinikanth made a call, the talks have resumed and both the producers of '2.0' and Aamir are figuring if something can be done.”
