Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth starrer ‘2.0’ was one of the biggest blockbusters of last year. The action packed VFX laden film was loved by masses and critics alike. It had been in the making since the past 4 years and finally when it hit theatres last year, it became a rage. Now, the film is going to release in China.

With films like ‘Dangal’, ‘Secret Superstar’, ‘Andhadhun’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Hindi Medium’, ‘Mom’ and many others doing well in the Chinese markets, filmmakers have found a great way to earn money for their great content-driven films. ‘2.0’ will be just another addition to the long list of films releasing in the neighbouring country. Check out the Chinese poster right here:

The film will be released with the title, ‘Robot 2.0: Resurgence’. It will hit theatres in China on July 12. As per latest reports, China has about 60,000 theatres all over and from them, about 55,000 will be screening the Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth starrer movie.

Fans on social media have already started asking questions as to whether Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar will personally fly out to China to promote the film. After all, we have seen stars like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan do the same ahead of the release of their films in China.

However, there is a slight bit of concern. We have seen only great content driven films do well in the Chinese markets. Magnum opus action films like ‘Baahubali‘ and ‘Baahubali 2’ fell flat amidst the masses there. As Chinese audiences are already overloaded with action films in China from their own film industry, they usually don’t end up spending their money on action films from abroad.

So a lot of the collections for ‘2.0’ will depend on the word-of-mouth from people who will watch it on the first few days. If that picks up, then for sure, there will be great moolah coming in from China as well for the film.
