Khiladi Kumar's fans, who were holding their breaths ever since the news of his two ambitious films release clashing, can sigh in relief now. Taking into consideration the severity of the situation, '2.0' makers have decided to postpone the film's release.

Notably, this is the third time that the film has been delayed. Earlier, the film was supposed to hit the theatres in December this year, which was later shifted to January 25, 2018, and now, the final reports suggest that S. Shankar's sci-fi thriller will finally release on April 27, 2018.

Renowned critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took the new release date to Twitter and announced the breaking news. He wrote, "#BreakingNews: #2Point0 to release on 27 April 2018... Stars Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar... Directed by Shankar."

The film's producers also confirmed the news by releasing an official statement which read, "Lyca Productions – Superstar Rajinikanth – Akshay Kumar – Shankar magnum opus SciFi action thriller 2.0 to be screened worldwide on April 2018."

Arguably, the most expensive Indian film till date with an estimated budget of over Rs 4.5 billion, '2.0' will be a visual treat for the viewers as it has been shot using the latest 3D technology cameras and cutting-edge technology.

"Nation’s costliest 3D film starring Superstar Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, directed by Shankar, music by AR Rahman. The high-tech post-production works are fully geared and the team is all set for the release schedule," the statement further read.

Reprising his role from the 2010 blockbuster Enthiran (Robot), Rajnikanth will be seen as Dr Vaseegaran and his robot double while Akshay will play the role of an antagonist. Film's lead actress Amy Jackson's look and robot costume suggest that she will be seen in a completely new avatar.

The film starring Tamil superstar Rajnikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson is creating buzz among the masses due to its unique concept. The cast of '2.0' recently launched the audio of the film in a grand event in Dubai which is composed by maestro AR Rahman.
