It is speculated that the movie will break even more records at box-office.
Director Shankar’s latest movie 2.0 is breaking records at the box office and it is yet another south Indian movie. We are talking about Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0. The sci-fi venture has earned Rs 400 crore at the worldwide box office in just four days, which is indeed a huge record by a Tamil movie. The film has already become the biggest Tamil at the global market and we are expecting it set new benchmarks at the ticket windows.

The movie has already become the biggest opener at the Chennai box office beating Thalapathy Vijay’s Sarkar. In Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka, 2.0 has set new benchmarks at the ticket windows. 2.0 has already surpassed the lifetime business of its prequel, Enthiran on the first day itself. The first part had collected Rs 20 crore during its theatrical run. This is definitely not the end. The film expects to earn several times more, create an epic Box Office record and setting the bar a little too high to reach, let alone cross.
