Superstar Rajinikanth wrapped up the shoot of 2.0 long ago and the film has been slated for release this summer but missed the date. Lyca Productions is said to have invested Rs 450 crores on the film and they are left unhappy with the series of delays because of director Shankar. The production team warned Shankar to wrap up all the formalities and release the film during summer.
Then it was Rajinikanth who stepped out and asked Lyca to release Kaala on the same date and give ample time for Shankar to complete the post-production work. With nothing much to do, Lyca Productions backed out and the release date of Kaala has been announced. Shankar too is delighted so that he gets enough time to wrap up the VFX work. Kaala will now release through Lyca Productions on April 27th. PA Ranjith is the director and Rajinikanth plays a gangster in the film.
