Currently, the team is deliberating various options regarding the new release date, and an official poster will be released soon. The makers have already informed the event management team involved in the teaser and trailer launch to hold back," a source privy to the development informed Firstpost.
Made at a whopping budget of Rs 400 crores by Lyca Productions, 2.0 is directed by Shankar and is touted to be Asia's costliest "natively acquired" 3D film.
