Secret Superstar and Rajinikanth’s mega film 2.0 will not lock horns in Diwali.
2.0, which stars Akshay Kumar in a nergative role, is not ready with its VFX effects which it needs of extremely high quality.
2.0 will now release on January 25. This is the proof:

Aamir’s next production, which was earlier supposed to release in August,
had been shifted to Diwali. Which means it was going to have a face-off with
2.0, which was set to release on the same day.
Taran Adarsh had taken to Twitter and written: “Aamir Khan Productions’ #SecretSuperstar will now release in Diwali 2017. Zee Studios presents. Directed by Advait Chandan.” The film has been directed by Aamir’s close friend and stars Zaira Wasim, who won the National Award for Best Supporting Actor for Dangal.
Adarsh revealed that Aamir wanted to avert the clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s untitled film directed by Imtiaz Ali in August. Hence, he spoke to Rajinikanth and the two stars mutually decided to have Secret Superstar and 2.0 releasing on the same day.
The new release date of Secret Superstar had left everyone shocked and even speculations had been made on who will have the last laugh.
Now, Aamir can laugh alone. 2.0 is postponed.
