2.0, the Sci-Fi movie that fans are waiting for almost 2 years, is almost here and the expectations from it are huge. After the debacle of Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan, all eyes are now on this film which can change the entire Indian cinema in terms of visual effects and Sci-Fi narrative, if everything works out well.
2.0 is said to be the costliest film of India, with a budget of around 500 crore. Director Shankar is an expert filmmaker and with such a huge buzz around it, it can easily set the box office on fire and smash all the existing box office records, just like Baahubali 2 did in 2017. With around 500 crore budget, 2.0 definitely needs to get record breaking collections and go past the 1000 crore mark to achieve the Blockbuster status. Here are the records it can and should break.
This epic grand movie stars Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar. Rajinikanth is the biggest superstar in South India and Akshay Kumar is one of the most popular Bollywood actors. Together, 2.0 can easily challenge the Highest Opening Day of All Time in India. 2.0 is a solo release and it will get more than 6000 screens in India. Baahubali 2 had collected 121 crore for all versions on its opening day so 2.0 will be expected to break that.
Thugs Of Hindostan collected the record breaking 50 crore for Hindi on its opening day. Trade will be watching if 2.0 can beat that. It will be phenomenal if its all version total on opening day can near the 130 crore mark or even surpass that.
It is possible for 2.0 to register 100+ crore opening day for all versions. With Pan India release and so much buzz going on, it is the least it could do. If it gets audience backing, it can even break Baahubali 2’s opening day record of 121 crore. If that happens, highest opening weekend will be easier to achieve.
Subsequently, 2.0 will then can collect 250-300 crore in its opening weekend itself for all the versions. If it gets positive reviews, then sustainability will not be issue as audience will keep coming for its shows for 2-3 weeks in theaters, ensuring it will collect huge in its lifetime.
2.0 has an extended opening weekend. By the end of its 1st week, it should see the collections reaching 260-300 crore for Hindi and 500-600 crore for all the versions. 1000+ crore can be on the cards if the film receives the kind of positive response everyone is hoping and if that happens, we will see a new highest grossing Indian film, beating Baahubali 2.
It’s still early to say how much exactly 2.0 will be earning in Hindi and all versions but it surely has the potential to become the All Time Blockbuster. Indian audience has been very choosy lately but it is giving humongous response to movies which are genuinely good so if 2.0 has the content it is promising, there is no stopping for it. The combination of content and entertainment has no match.
2.0 will be releasing in China too. Chinese audience loves Sci-Fi movies so don’t be surprised if 2.0 smashes the existing top grossing Indian films in China and becomes the top 3 films. Of course, one needs to see how the film is. Keep following this space as we will be constantly updating the news and box office of 2.0 regarding its advance booking report, screen count in India and overseas, 2.0’s box office predictions and its box office collections.
