We revealed to you exclusively how Lyca Productions decided to postpone 2.0 after being assured that Rajinikanth's Kaala Karikaalan would release on April 27 instead. Shankar is now working day and night to complete the final edit on the movie, but the makers are still remained tight-lipped about the new release date. 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. They feel both the films will not be able to hit the potential that they can and hence, they have tried to have talks with the superstar. But looks like Aamir is in no mood to budge! As a close source revealed to us exclusively, "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." While the talks stalled for a couple of weeks, looks like the discussions have resumed once again after Rajinikanth intervened. As 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 you remember, Aamir had called Rajinikanth last year after 2.0 vacated the Diwali slot. He asked for his permission to release Secret Superstar in their slot, which he graciously agreed to. Will Aamir now return the favour by pushing Thugs of Hindostan's release for 2.0? Well, that's something to look out for.
