This Diwali it would be a blast as Rohit Shetty has announced the screening of Golmaal 4 and so did the Akshay Kumar. Earlier reports said that Akshay Kumar and Rajnikanth’s 2.0 movie is all set to hit the screens this Diwali.
However, it was Aamir Khan who has shifted his upcoming movie from 4th August to the festive date due to Rajnikanth. Now the makers of the super sci-fi movie have decided to shift Rajinikanth’s movie to Republic Day, 2018. Yes, the movie is all set to release on 25th Jan 2017.
Here is what the COD of Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth’s movie tweeted,
“Our most ambitious project, Shankar’s ‘2.0’ shifts to 25 Jan 2018. It moves from the earlier Diwali release to achieve world class standards in VFX (sic).”
Shibasish Sarkar, the COO of Reliance Entertainment who is currently working with Rohit Shetty,
“We are happy that we now have a clear window. The ‘Golmaal’ franchise is synonymous with Diwali. Since it is a comedy, the subject goes with the festive cheer. It is a big scale project and we are hoping to get a much larger share of screens now.”
If recent buzz is to be believed, it is said that makers of Padman are also looking to release the movie on the same day. Will it be Akshay v/s Akshay this Republic day?
Further reports say that Neeraj Pandey’s ‘Aiyaary’ starring Manoj Bajpayee and Sidharth Malhotra may be scheduled to release this Republic day.
Well, let’s see if Akshay would clash with Akshay this season or there would be some re-shuffle in the release schedule of the movie.
