The film had generated tremendous buzz, ever since its teaser and trailer got released. ‘2.0’ also roped in Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar. The combination of Akshay and Rajini starring together for the first time has proved to be highly successful.
‘2.0’ was made on a mammoth budget of close to Rs 550 crore and even before its release, it had reportedly recovered around Rs 370 crore. The film is also slated to release in China and then, the earnings will definitely go through the roof.
‘2.0’ was director Shankar’s most ambitious project till date and all the hard work has paid off. Now, what next for ‘2.0’? The Rajini starrer could collect Rs 1,000 crore worldwide, if it keeps up the momentum.
