Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar are going to be seen together in the sci-fi film 2.0!
2.0 is one of the most awaited films of the next year. The film was supposed to release in January 2018. But due to some reasons the makers had to push it to the month of April. And now we know why this Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer film had to be postponed.
It is because the American VFX company which had to design the special effects of the film, could not complete it on time.
A source of Bollywood Hungama says, “The VFX delivery has been gravely defaulted by a US company that took on the task of doing the entire special effects of our film. So we had to pull out a 1000 shots from the film and send it off to 10 different VFX companies, 100 shots to each! This meant a great deal of criminal delay. In fact I will tell you the truth, they’ve cheated us and we’re now planning to take elaborate legal action against them.”
The source says that it’s a fraud pulled on them deliberately. Their producers Lyca are considering serious legal action. They found it shocking that a huge VFX company in America which has won Oscars for its work has pulled such a swindle on a relatively small Indian production house like them which is trying to excel in the VFX department.
The furious source also says, “They call themselves the First World and they call us the Third World. And this is what they do to us! They took 90 per cent of the payment in advance and then did not meet our deadline. When we took out the rushes we realized they hadn’t even done 50 per cent of the work. Now we are all working 48 hours a day to meet our new release deadline.”
Well, all we can say is that this was not expected from such a renowned American VFX company, which has earlier been associated with some of the iconic films.
