Earlier, it was slated to release this Diwali in a clash with Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar. The makers have announced that the movie’s release has been postponed to January 25 next year.
"Our most ambitious project, Shankar's '2.o' shifts to January 25, 2018. It moves from earlier Diwali release to achieve world class standards in VFX," tweeted Raju Mahalingam, COO, Lyca Productions, the makers of "2.o".
