2.0 has arrived and its phenomenon is gripping the nation. Released in more than 7500 screens in India (4000+ for Hindi), the film is getting a monstrous response across the country. Although the crowd in multiplexes in Hindi language version shows is not as big as expected, it’s still not stopping this Rajinikanth starrer super Sci-Fi film.
2.0’s 1st day box office collections for Hindi version are 20.25 crore. Considering its epic buzz, 2.0 was expected to earn 28-30 crore but this is still a really good opening day total because it was Thursday which is a normal working day’; it still has 3 big days to collect huge.
The concern for Hindi version is 2.0 is getting only magnificent response from single screens and small cities’ multiplexes; not from Mumbai, Delhi and other metro cities from North and West. Otherwise, it could have easily minted 30+ crore for Hindi alone.
2.0 is historic in South. According to trade analyst Ramesh Bala, 2.0 has collected 2.64 crore from Chennai which is an all time biggest opening in Chennai. In AP/TG regions, it has grossed 19 crore. From Karnataka, it has grossed a total of 8.25 crore.
2.0 may not have as great and phenomenal trending as Baahubali 2 but the audience is extremely interested to watch the film. South India will be the major earner for this movie; not rest of the country.
2.0 has fallen short of 100 crore mark on its opening day. Its all India total on 1st day is around 70 crore. It still makes it the 2nd Highest Opening Day Grosser in India, behind Baahubali 2. However, it has got good reviews and audience is going crazy for its VFX and epic action scenes. So, it will be holding exceptionally well in weekend. This Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer needs to show increased footfalls in metro multiplexes otherwise it will find hard to get a strong handsome total in its theatrical run.
