Reports from China say that the China release of ‘2.0’ is likely to be cancelled because HY Media, the distributor of the Chinese version feel that they would lose money as Disney’s Lion King is scheduled to release soon. The Chinese version of ‘2.0’ was scheduled to release on July 12 and Lion King will be releasing on July 19 across the globe. But we hear that in China, Lion King will be releasing on July 12.
As HY Media’s last Indian release ‘Padman’ incurred a huge loss for them, they are now planning to put the release plan of ‘2.0’ on hold as they feel that the recovery is quite doubtful due to the sudden clash with Lion King.
Fans of Rajinikanth who eagerly waited to know the China box office numbers of the film are quite disappointed with this recent development.
