After assured by Rajinikanth that Kaala Karikaalan would release on April 27. Shankar is now working day and night to complete the final edit on the movie, but the makers are still remained tight-lipped about the new release date.

However, they are skeptical about having the Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer clash with the big Bollywood release, Aamir Khan's Thugs Of Hindostan, which is slated to release on the same day. Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial film Thugs of Hindostan that is being made under Yashraj Films banner will be releasing on Diwali 2018. But the makers still anxious about the new release date. They feel both the films have the potential to do well but if they clash, things won't work in their favour. They even tried to have a word with Aamir Khan too. If 2.0 misses the Independence Day weekend, the next big season would be Diwali. But the Bollywood superstar doesn't seem very keen on changing the release date of his film, which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in pivotal roles. Well, Aamir told that people have not seen the proper look of him yet as the proper look will come out only in the posters. "The actor feels Diwali is the ideal time to release Thugs and hence, he is holding on to the date". If you guys remember, he had called Rajinikanth past year after 2.0 shifted from the Diwali slot. He requested him to give permission to release his movie and Rajinikanth agreed with this.

The makers of 2.0 will try convincing Aamir Khan again, it seems.
