2.0 box office collection: When Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth starrer hit the silver screen, expectations were that it would certainly break many past records. The box office reports say that 2.0 movie, after completing its third week, has collected Rs 518 crore in India in all the languages, said a Bollywood Life report. With this total, the sci-fi venture has reportedly beaten the business of Baahubali, which had collected Rs 516 crore during its theatrical run.
Since many other Tamil films along with Shah Rukh Khan's Zero will also hit theatres tomorrow, 2.0 is likely to face face a huge screen crunch at the ticket windows. However, despite facing stiff competition from holdover and new releases, the mega movie is expected to maintain a strong grip over movie goers.
A sequel to Shankar's 2010 blockbuster Enthiran, 2.0 is produced by Lyca Productions and released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on November 29. Notably, Rajinikanth plays three different roles, along with other stars including Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey in key roles.
Akshay Kumar, who makes his southern film debut, plays the antagonist in the film, which has been made on a budget of Rs 600 crore.
Lyca Productions, via an official poster, reportedly stated that the film has grossed Rs 400 crore.
Talking about Rajinikanth's commitment, Shankar has revealed during the film's trailer launch, "When we were all set to shoot the climax in a stadium in Delhi, Rajini Sir fell ill. Six months of planning had gone into the preparation of the climax which was supposed to be shot in 40 days. Despite his bad health, Rajini Sir insisted that we go ahead with the shoot."
Shankar further said, "We shot in extremely hot temperature. Rajini Sir had to shoot wearing 12 kg robotic suit. We were stunned by his commitment."
