Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer ‘2.0’ is one of the most anticipated movie of the year. Filmy buffs are just waiting for the movie to hit the silver screens.
However, Rajnikanth’s recent release ‘Kaala’, might put ‘2.0’ in a tig
ht spot. Reason? the low box office numbers. Reports suggest that ‘Kaala’ didnt do well at the ticket window, especially, with the Hindi version as it didnt even manage to collect Rs. 10 crore which has left the distributors in worry for his next release.
The report further suggests that ‘2.0’ has gone over-budget. In fact, it has been made on a budget of Rs 450 crore, which makes it the most expensive Indian film ever. So in order to recover the invested costs, it might be impossible to recover if it receives the same amount of response like ‘Kaala’. True that!
Without making any further speculations, lets wait for the big release.
Touted to be one of the most expensive Indian films to date, ‘2.0’, starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar in lead roles, reportedly has a budget of Rs 400 crore. If latest reports are anything to go by, then the makers have added another Rs 100 crore to their already inflated budget to complete high-end post-production work.
According to reports, director Shankar is trying his best to meet release date deadlines, but not by compromising on the post-production and VFX factors. While aiming to match up to international standards, the director who is also known for his technical wizardry, is reportedly going all out. This, in turn, has the producers reportedly shelling out Rs 100 crore more on the sci-fi flick.
The film which has long been in the making, will now reportedly release in January 2019.
