The first month of 2018 saw a major upheaval in the release dates of some major movies, thanks to the sudden release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat during the Republic Day weekend. The release of Pad Man and Aiyaary was postponed to the second week of February while the films releasing then, were pushed further ahead. And just as we are returning to some stability after this hoopla, we hear that a similar situation might arise in the next couple of months.
South superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.0 was slated to release on April 27. But now we hear that the film requires a lot of VFX, which is still pending, and this might just delay the release a little more. Since it seems that all the Fridays in the entire year are already booked, it will be interesting to see when 2.0 will decide to release and how other producers, whose films are scheduled to come out on that particular date, will react. Just like we saw what happened this month, we might see other smaller movies scrambling to shift their release dates to avoid clashing, or even releasing around the time 2.0 hits the big screen.
Everyone will have to wait and watch for the unveiling of the shocking news.
