It would probably release in 2019 and the date is yet not revealed.
A source close to the team said, "With the amount of VFX work on 2.0 that is still pending there is no way the makers will be able to release the film this year. In fact, the producers are currently working out a perfect release date for the film that will now hit screens in 2019 and an announcement of the same will be done in the last quarter of the year."
The VFX work will be complete by the end of this year. On the work front, Rajnikanth had his film 'Kaala' released that also featured Nana Patekar and Huma Qureshi. While Akshay Kumar is awaited for his upcoming film 'Gold' that also stars Mouni Roy.
