Produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah and distributed by Reliance Entertainment, ‘Commando 2’ was earlier scheduled to hit screens on January 6, 2017. But the makers pushed the release date of the movie to March 3 due to the demonetization move taken by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, which rendered high value currency of Rs. 500 and Rs. 100 unacceptable and worthless. Fearing that the move might affect the box office earning of the movie, the makers moved it to 3rd March.
