Here come an unexpected twist and breaking news about the most awaited Indian film of Superstar Rajnikanth – Robot 2.0. The news is that the makers, Lyca Productions, are officially delaying the release date to 25th January 2018.
Director Shankar, who is currently looking into its post-production, was previously working towards having the film ready to go for Diwali, 2017 theatrical release.
As reported by Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh a while ago, the makers are postponing 2.0 with a very straightforward reason: to deliver an International-standard film by achieving world-class VFX.
Going by the latest release date, the second installment of Superstar’s Robot will leave it to Aamir Khan‘s Secret Superstar to clash with fourth installment of Ajay Devgan‘s Golmaal – Golmaal Again this Diwali.
Featuring Amy Jackson as leading lady and Akshay Kumar as the baddie, this science fiction film is being made on an estimated budget of 400 Crores. And off course, the quality is promised to be superior to any Indian films released so far.
Superstar Rajnikanth and Ulaganayagan Kamal Hassan step down from their thrones for youngsters
MGR and Sivaji Ganesan ruled Tamil cinema during its nascent stage and were revered as demigods whose legacies live even today.
Now close to three decades, it is Superstar Rajnikanth and Ulaganayagan Kamal Hassan who are the undisputed twin overlords of the industry.
Even until five years ago the duo rarely made public appearances and were inaccessible to most but a select few even in the industry.
The social media revolution has brought these giants to a much closer vicinity than ever before and it is highly sportive of both Rajini and Kamal to have fully embraced it. Today we often get to see even small time filmmakers getting their audio launches or first looks unveiled by the stalwarts.
Unknown directors who have made an impressive film get calls of appreciation from the Thalaivar and the Andavar and what more can they ask for. The Nadigar Sangam and the Producer Council, which is in the hands of relative youngsters have the blessings of the two legends.
Today’s generation is lucky that Rajni and Kamal often step down from their thrones and mingle with the crowds as mere mortals. Their rivalry has all but disappeared, giving way to a bromance that is delightfully heartwarming.
Tamil cinema is blessed to have these two luminaries shining as bright as ever shedding the light on the youngsters who have much to take home from their experiences.
