Superstar Rajinikanth said the release of director Shankar’s 2.0 has been moved to April as some more computer graphics work has to be done in the movie.

During the recently held fans’ meet where he made the announcement of his entry into politics, he said “Since there is some more CG (computer graphics) work that needs to be done, it is getting delayed. We have shifted the release to April 14.”

Praising director Shankar, Rajinikanth said, “2.0 would be a talked-about film in Indian cinema. How the SS Vasan directed Chandralekha, which was released in 1944, turned out to be a blockbuster, 2.0 will have the same kind of reach and talk. It is all because of the content.”

In 2.0, Akshay Kumar is playing the role of robot/villain and scientist Dr Richard whereas Sudhanshu Pandey, also a Bollywood actor, will be seen in another negative role. British beauty Amy Jackson is playing the female lead role. Made on a lavish budget of Rs 450 crore, Oscar-winning music director AR Rahman is composing the soundtrack for this film with cinematographer Nirav Shah cranking the camera. The film will be simultaneously released in Hindi and Telugu.

Talking about Kaala, his second collaboration with director Pa Ranjith, Rajini said, “Kaala will release two months after 2.0, and in the film Ranjith will show you an entirely different Rajinikanth. I myself felt happy doing that character.”

In the film, being produced by Dhanush, Rajini plays a slumlord-turned-gangster and will also have lines in Hindi and Marathi. The film is tipped to be made as a Tamil-Hindi bilingual and will also be dubbed into Telugu.

The project marks the reunion of director Pa Ranjith with Rajinikanth after Kabali, and it is believed that Kaala revolves around the lives of oppressed Tamils in Mumbai and their fight for equality. Santhosh Narayana is scoring the music while national award-winner Sreekar Prasad is the editor.
