There have been enough speculations about Akshay Kumarâ€™s Padman and 2.0 releasing for the Republic Day next year. However, the star has said that such a clash is not going to happen and will be averted. While Padman is his home production produced by his wife Twinkle Khanna, 2.0 is a Shankar directorial that is being bankrolled by Lyca Productions. Incidentally, Akshay Kumar plays the baddie in 2.0 which has Rajinikanth playing the lead role.
On both his films heading for release around the same time, Akshay Kumar said that it wouldnâ€™t be a good idea for such a clash to happen and it will be averted at any cost. The star went on to add that Padmanâ€™s release will depend on when 2.0 hits the screens. Being the producer of Padman, Akshay Kumar said that he can reschedule the release date but that canâ€™t be done for 2.0 as the release plan depends on director Shankar and the producers.
It may be noted that Akshay Kumar plays the male lead in Padman while in 2.0, he will be seen as the antagonist. He will be appearing in 12 different get-ups for his role as an evil scientist in 2.0.
2.0, one of the most anticipated films in Indian cinema, is made on a budget of Rs. 450 crores by A Subashkaran of Lyca Productions. The film has Amy Jackson playing the female lead with Rajinikanth as the hero and Akshay Kumar as the villain. Scoring the music for this flick is AR Rahman with Nirav Shah being the cameraman and Anthony the editor. This magnum opus has some of the best technicians associated with it, which has raised the expectation levels. It may be recollected that 2.0 is the sequel to Endhiran, which was a blockbuster hit.
