On day 1, the film collected over 1.4 million dollars. This is a great start considering that word of mouth will play a huge role in China. We have seen similar trends for films like Dangal and Baahubali.
2.0 China Collection -Day 1 & 2
2.0 is made with a massive budget of 570 crores. And in India, it was released in 15 languages all over India. In fact, the film was released in 7000 screens all over the world and now it was released in 48,000 screens in China itself.
2.0 stars Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar as the protagonist and Antagonist respectively. The film also stars actors like Amy Jackson, Sudhanshu Pandey, Sudhanshu Pandey and many other actors who will be seen playing crucial characters in the film.
On its initial release, 2.0 collected a combined share of 300 crores in India and all over the world. The theatrical value of the film was 375 crores. So the film has only managed to recover 80% of its value.
So makers of 2.0 will be hoping the film to do well in China. Though the share of profit is very less compared to that in the native country, it will be enough for the film to coverup for the losses.
