2.0 isn’t only a film but a kind of festival for all the Rajinikanth fans. There’s a specific type of trend and excitement around the movie since it marks the first cooperation of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar. And it’s nothing less than a’double cure’ to get movie-goers. From getting positive reviews from the critics to heaping praises from movie-goers, Rajinikanth & Akshay Kumar starrer first day collection is nothing but mind-blowing.
If reports are to be considered, 2.0, which screened in around 10,500 screens globally, would have easily earned about between Rs 60-65 crore on its first day. We will upgrade the exact collection when the official figures will be out.
The film has already established a benchmark for itself. The trailer of this film broke multiple documents, garnering 25 million views in less than 24 hours. While the manufacturers claim it to be a onetime encounter with its extravagant VFX, 2.0 is generating a sizeable amount of buzz among the audience since it also marks the Tamil introduction of Bollywood star Akshay Kumar.
Having a top-notch cast and premium VFX, the film is likely to split multiple box office records. Discussing the introduction of the movie, commerce analyst, Girish Johar forecasts that the film is going to be the largest non-holiday launch of this year.
“The preview of’2.0′ has increased the expectations of their viewers who have been waiting for the movie’s release for a lengthy time. With a wonderful manager like Shankar, I don’t believe the film will falter even after the first moment. Movie buffs from the South will go berserk as celebrity Rajinikanth plays the lead role in the film,” Johar informed indianexpress.com.
“The Hindi version of the movie is expected to make something between Rs 20-25 crore on the day of its launch. If we believe each of the languages (Tamil and Telugu), the Rajinikanth starrer will touch Rs 100 crore (gross) markers on day one,” he added.
At Rs 543 crore, this sequel into Rajinikanth’s 2010 blockbuster film Robot is more expensive than several successful Hollywood VFX classics. Deadpool (2016) had initially cost just USD 58 million.
