We all remember the magic of 2010 film ‘Robot’ starring superstar Rajnikanth and beautiful Aishwarya Rai. Made with an estimated budget of Rs 1.62 billion, the film grossed Rs 580 million in the opening weekend, as per leading daily Business Line. In July 2015, IANS reported that the film grossed a total of Rs 2.90 billion worldwide. It was the highest grossing Indian film of 2010 leaving behind My Name Is Khan and Dabangg.
And now, the makers are back with its second installment titled 2.0. The fans have been eagerly waiting for its release since last one year and now it is finally scheduled to release on 29th November 2018. The science fiction action thriller film will star Rajnikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Amy Jackson. The film is made in an estimated budget of Rs 543 crore making it the most expensive Indian film made to date.
The trailer released on November 3 has left the audience excited for the film. The film is shot in the Tamil language and will be released in 14 other languages. Keeping in mind the enthusiasm of the audience, the film is expected to collect double the amount than before.
The film is expected to make new records as the fan base of two big superstars- Akshay and Rajnikanth will prove to be a big audience. The film will release on 2500 screens for Tamil Version and 3500 screens for Hindi version.
People are curious to know if 2.0 will be able to break the records of all-time grossers Baahubali 2 and Dangal. The biggest advantage of this film is that Akshay Kumar’s fanbase will be beneficial for Hindi version and Rajnikanth’s presence in the film will attract the crowd to the Tamil version. With this, we can expect a Rs 70-80 crore business on opening day from both Hindi and Tamil screens. The film will easily enter the Rs 100 crore club on Day 2 and can break the record of Sanju which has been the highest grosser Hindi film in 2018.
Rajnikanth will be seen playing scientist Dr. Vaseekaran and robot Chitti as he played in part 1. Akshay Kumar will be seen in the character of Dr. Richard. The film has been written and directed by S. Shankar and music was given by A.R. Rahman.
