Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar's 2.0 has been making waves in the global market. Since its release on November 29, 2.0 has been dominating global box offices. At home turf too, there is no stopping Shankar's 2.0. With Rs 500 crore in its kitty, 2.0 has also become Akshay Kumar's highest-earner, surpassing his previous hit movie, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
2.0's enviable success comes on the back of its international collection along with the Hindi version's earnings. In the US, 2.0 made Rs 29.28 crore, while it made Rs 5.55 crore in the UK. In Australia and New Zealand, 2.0 made Rs 5.86 crore and Rs 1.10 crore respectively.
Rajinikanth's 2.0 made Rs 17.70 crore in four days in UAE and has shot right to the top of highest-grossers. Shankar's 2.0 has far surpassed Hollywood's big releases like Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Ralph Breaks the Internet and Bohemian Rhapsody.

While the Hindi version collections are still awaited, 2.0 had made Rs 132 crore till Wednesday.
Sara Ali Khan's Kedarnath that released today has not garnered positive reviews. So, while the interest around Khan remains, it may not be enough to take on 2.0.
Sequel of Enthiran, 2.0 revolves around strange incidents taking place in the city of Chennai. Mobile phones are flying off the hands of users and from the shelves of shops. However, no one has been able to figure out the meaning of this. Dr Vaseegaran also seems to be unable to crack the puzzle. It is when people start dying in mysterious ways that the authorities decide to bring Chitti back to life.
2.0 stars Rajinikanth as Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti, Akshay Kumar as Pakshirajan - the monstrous threat looming over Chennai, Amy Jackson as robot Nila, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey.
