Much to the delight of Rajinikanth fans, 2.0’s director Shankar has confirmed that the movie will release on November 29, 2018. The director, late on Monday, tweeted, “Hi everyone.. atlast the vfx companies promised the final delivery date of the vfx shots. The movie will release on nov 29th 2018 (sic).”

Starring Rajinikanth, Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles, the film reportedly has a budget of Rs. 400 crore. The whopping budget makes it one of India’s most expensive films. According to reports, the delay in the movie was because of the high costs incurred in post-production and special effects involved. The movie is a sequel to the superhit movie Enthiran and will be a sci-fi thriller.

In March, the director, known for making movies that stand out, both in terms of budget and grandeur, released a video showing the making of 2.0‘s VFX.
