Being one of the most awaited films of the year, Rajinikanth is gearing up for 2.0, the sequel to his much celebrated sci-fi film Robot. On the other hand, Kamal Haasan is working on the sequel to his controversial film Vishwaroopam. The two superstars are quite obviously busy with one of their most ambitious projects respectively. But what happens when the two films are being touted to release on the same day? The said day is Independence Day.
If recent reports are to be believed, Rajinikanth starrer 2.0 and Kamal Haasan starrer Vishwaroopam 2 are expected to release on August 18. Both films are in news for their own reasons! 2.0 will see megastar Rajinikanth being pitted against Akshay Kumar for the first time as the latter plays antagonist. Featuring Amy Jackson as the leading lady, the release of this sci-fi film has been postponed over three times owing to the heavy VFX required. While it was supposed to release last year during Diwali, the release date of the film continues to be tentative.
In fact, Bollywood films too are facing date constraints when it comes to Independence Day. If 2.0 releases on the said date, two of Akshay Kumar films will be releasing on the same day. Readers may be aware that the Bollywood star’s period film on India’s first hockey win post-Independence, Gold is slated to release on the same day. Directed by Reema Kagti, the teaser of this Excel Entertainment production is already released.
