The hype around Rajinikanth's latest offering The Robot, which is being simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu as Endhiran and Robo respectively, has been great. Even as the film buffs are eagerly waiting to see their favourite superstar on the big screens, uncertainty looms large on its release due to the Ayodhya verdict.
The Robot is scheduled for release on October 1, but sadly, the Ayodhya verdict is expected to be pronounced a day before its release. There is possibility of people keeping away from theatres and public places, as the verdict could even lead to unfavourable atmosphere. Moreover, many states have declared holiday for educational institutions on September 30 and October 1 as precautionary measure.
The fact is that even if the film is released as scheduled, it may not make a good opening if any untoward incident happens after the pronouncement of the Ayodhya verdict. So, it's not sure if the makers of the film are ready to take the risk.
The Robot, directed by Shankar may features Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Bachchan in the lead roles.
