Watch Superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 box office collection Day2:

The Cinema Times, Kathmandu-South superstar Rajinikanth and Bollywood Khiladi Akshay Kumar‘s 2.0 is the highest opener of 2018 by garnering Rs 73.5 crore at the box office on Thursday, the S Shankar-directed earned Rs 38.25 crore (Hindi version) on day 2.

The total collection of 2.0 now stands at Rs 111.5 crore, excluding the day 2 earnings in Tamil and Telugu versions.

Cinema trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#2Point0 remained strong on Day 2… Although the film has declined on Day 2, the biz should gather momentum on Day 3 (Sat) and Day 4 (Sun) Thu 20.25 cr, Fri 18 cr. Total: Rs 38.25 cr. India biz. Note: HINDI version.” (sic)

Touted as the most expensive Indian project ever, 2.0 is reportedly made at a budget of Rs 543 crore and is apparently more expensive than several successful Hollywood VFX classics like Deadpool, X-Men and Batman.

The long-awaited sequel to the blockbuster Robot marks Akshay’s Tamil debut and sees him in the role of an antagonist.
