According to a report read on India Today, Shankar-Rajnikanth's Robo 2.0 and Rajamouli-Prabhas' Baahubali 2 are clashing at the box-office next April. It added that, both the films will release on 17 April 2017, calling for the biggest ever clash at the indian box office.
However, the official spokesperson from the Baahubali unit denied the clash and called it a baseless news. As of now, it is a sure case that, Baahubali 2 is slated to hit screens on 14 April 2017, while Robo 2.0's release date is still speculative.
We hope India Today did not play a prank, since its 1st April (Fools day) today.
The report also quoted a trade analyst, who hinted that there are less chances for the clash. "It can be said with 100% certainty that the news is a rumour. The films cannot be released on the same day because the main problem will be lack of screens.", said the anonymous trade analyst.
Nevertheless, the case can be ruled out for now, since Baahubali team has already denied the reports. But, this has left the moviegoers in imaginativ world. Think, how difficult it would have been to chose one between Robo 2.0 and Baahubali 2 on the first day first show, if the clash is real.
