Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the news.
He tweeted, “Non-holiday release… Non-festival period… Yet, 2Point0 takes a SUPER START… Keeping in mind the fact that it’s a dubbed film advance bookings opened very late, the biz is STRONG… Thu ? 20.25 cr. India biz. Note: HINDI version.”
Fans of Rajinikanth danced and rejoiced across Chennai as the much-anticipated movie 2.0 hit the screens on Thursday.
Directed by S. Shankar, the flick stars the ‘Khiladi’ actor as a mysterious supervillain, who has the superpower to control crows and mobile phones. He has taken over the world with this ability. When the world is in a desperate need of a superhero, scientists and researchers bring back Chitti, the robot (Rajinikanth’s character).
Ensuring to ‘reboot superpower’, ‘2.0’ brings Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Director Shankar together for the first time and is a sequel of 2010 film ‘Enthiran’, which had released in Hindi as ‘Robot’.
