The movie will have around 32,000 to 33,000 shows across the country.Rajinikanth's 2.0 will release in 4,000-4,100 screens in the northern region of the country and in 1,200-1,250 screens in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The movie will claim around 625 and 300 screens in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka respectively.
Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC ) has passed 2.0, with U/A certificate with a run time of 2 hour and 28 minutes.
