Much awaited Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 has finally found itself a release date. The movie will hit screens on November 29, 2018.

2.0 director Shankar took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to announce the release date. He wrote on Twitter, “Hi everyone. At last the VFX companies promised the final delivery date of the VFX shots. The movie will release on Nov 29th, 2018. #2Point0”

2.0 will see Rajinikanth returning in the role of the andro-humanoid robot he donned in Endhiran (Robot). The movie ran into delays due to technical issues and got postponed multiple times. Director Shankar has now revealed that the VFX companies that are handling the CG work for the movie have promised the final delivery date of the VFX shots.

Lyca Productions is bankrolling the mammoth venture 2.0 and has announced that the movie is being made at a whopping Rs 450 budget and is touted to be the costliest movie made in the history of Indian cinema.  Apart from Rajinikanth and Akshay, 2.0 also stars Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey, Adil Hussain, Kalabhavan Shajohn and Riyaz Khan.

2.0 is a sequel to the superhit 2010 Tamil movie Endhiran which had Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead. At the audio launch of 2.0 that was held in Dubai, director of the movie announced that 2.0 is not a continuation to Endhiran and has a new premise. While the Thailvaar will be seen as Dr. Vaseegaran and Chitti once again, Khiladi Kumar will play the evil scientist Dr. Richard in 2.0.
