A section of media is speculating that Rajinikanth’s science fiction action thriller Robot 2.0 would clash with Rajamouli’s epic period drama Baahubali 2, also known as Baahubali : The Conclusion.
Although directors Shankar and Rajamouli have mutual respect towards each other, media is looking at Robot 2 and Baahubali 2 as the ultimate competition between the ace directors.
Baahubali 2 is scheduled for release on April 14, 2017 and as per speculations Robot 2.0 is also aiming for release on the same day.
However Rana Daggubati, who is playing the antagonist in Baahubali said that it is not going to happen as 2.0 would take so much time to complete. As per Rana VFX work for 2.0 will take a lot of time which means it cannot be ready by next April.
Recently Shankar announced that only fifty percent shoot of 2.0 is complete in more than hundred days. Shankar took a lot of time to complete the VFX work of Robo too.
With 2.0 being made on a larger scale he will not compromise upon the quality of visual effects. So 2.0 may not be out anytime soon.
On the other hand even Baahubali 2 might get delayed as it is not easy to meet the deadlines for such humongous projects.
