Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer '2.0' has become one of the biggest blockbusters of 2018. It already had a massive hype surrounding it and that hype successfully translated into box office figures. The Hindi version of the film itself has crossed well over Rs 100 crore in its opening weekend, which is nothing short of a record for a dubbed South Indian film. Now, the Shankar directorial has added another feather in its cap as it carries its accolades overseas.
Lyca productions which bankrolled this magnum opus made a tremendous announcement that '2.0' is all set to release in China. The film will be released across a whopping 47,000 screens across the nation, which is unprecedented for a 3D film. In fact, along with the announcement, the makers also declared that it will become the first foreign 3D film to get such a massive screen count. Of course, such a big and joyous news has gone down really well with Thalaivar fans who took to Twitter to celebrate.
One used exclaimed that '2.0' will shatter all box office records of Hollywood movies as well. Another one gleefully wrote that China will now become the new bastion for Rajinikanth much like it has for Aamir Khan. One more fan claimed that Thalaivar will now enter the Rs 1000 crore club while another one seemed hopeful that the film will do well in China as it will be a big boost to Indian cinema. Take a look at the reactions here:
Meanwhile, '2.0' which released on November 29, started out with some mixed reviews, but picked up the pace on the second day and has been an unstoppable juggernaut since.
