Superstar Rajinikanth has said that his upcoming film 2.0 directed by Shankar would be releasing ahead of his Pa. Ranjith-directed Kaala Karikaalan.
Rajini was speaking to newsmen at Chennai Airport on Monday night after returning from Dubai where he had gone to attend the grand audio-launch of 2.0 which was well-covered by the international media. Released late on Friday, the songs in the film composed by Oscar award-winning music director A.R. Rahman have already become huge hits and are shared/downloaded by Rajini’s fans and music lovers on the web.
Rajini attended the audio-launch along with his wife, son-in-law Dhanush, his daughters Aishwarya and Soundarya and his grand-sons. Rajini spoke briefly to newsmen on his way out through the exit door of the international terminal at Chennai Airport.
To a specific query as to which among 2.0 and Kaala would release first in theatres, Rajini said that 2.0 would release first ahead of Kaala. It may be noted that 2.0, which was to release in theatres across the globe on 26th January next year, would now be releasing on 13th April on Tamil New Year Day. It is presumed that Kaala might release in theatres in August on Independence Day.
