Clash of big films once again: Rajnikanth’s and Akshay Kumar ‘2.0’ to clash with Aamir Khan ‘Thugs of Hindostan’

Lyca Productions decided to postpone 2.0 after being assured that Rajinikanth’s Kaala Karikaalan would release on April 27. It has zeroed in on two dates — August 15 and Diwali. However, both these dates will have two other big films releasing — Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan (Diwali) and Akshay Kumar’s Gold (Independence Day).

Recent reports suggested that the makers were planning to release 2.0 either on Independence Day or Diwali 2018. However, we can now exclusively tell you that the makers have decided to release 2.0 during Diwali 2018, but there is a catch.

Lyca does not want 2.0 to clash with Aamir Khan‘s Thugs Of Hindostan. it looks like Aamir is in no mood to budge according to the reports “The makers want to release 2.0 during Diwali, so they tried to discuss things with Aamir Khan as his movie – Thugs of Hindostan is scheduled to release on the same day. However, Aamir said a resounding no when they first approached him. The actor feels Diwali is the perfect time to release Thugs and hence, he is holding on to the date


The talks between the two parties stalled for a while but resumed after Rajinikanth intervened. The source further added, “After Rajinikanth made a call, the talks have resumed and both Lyca and Aamir along with Yash Raj Films are figuring if something can be done.”

If Rajnikant and Akshay film releases on August 15, then it will be ‘Akshay versus Akshay’ at the box office.
