Akshay Kumar will be seen with Rajinikanth in his much awaited ‘2.0,’ but if the film’s visual effects is delayed any further, it could be releasing with Kumar’s much talked about ‘Gold’, and Aamir Khan’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. Although, the release of ‘2.0’ could reportedly hamper the collections of ‘Gold’.
Deccan Chronicle reports that the VFX delays could push ‘2.0’ to a Diwali release, and Trade Analyst Atul Mohan says, “It will make a difference to Thugs of Hindostan if 2.0 releases opposite it. Aamir’s films will collect good money because he is a global star now. 2.0 has huge anticipation attached to it and there are names like Shankar, Rajini and Akshay as well associated with it. Also, the audience that wants to see Akshay will get divided between 2.0 and Gold if it releases on the same date. With Pad Man also having collected around Rs 65 crore plus after 10 days in the cinema halls, there is a lot of pressure on Akshay Kumar and Gold. It will make better sense if Gold shifts its dates.”
‘Gold’ stars Kumar, and will mark the Bollywood debut of television actor Mouni Roy.
