It is no surprise to us that Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar's film, 2.0, has taken off to a flying start at the box office, and even rewriting box office records in the process. With the promise of being a visual extravaganza and the combined star power of the two leads, not to mention the Rajinikanth mania, 2.0 is doing tremendous business in India, as well as overseas. Especially in the South, that is the stronghold of Rajinikanth. 2.0, directed by Shankar, has made some huge records in its opening day collections, especially with its collections in Chennai and Andhra Pradesh/Telangana, as per trade analyst and industry watcher, Ramesh Bala (whose tweets on these have been included below). 2.0 Box Office Collection Day 1: Rajinikanth- Akshay Kumar Starrer Takes off to a Flying Start.

With a budget of about Rs 600 crore, 2.0 has to earn more than Rs 700 crore at the box office to even earn profits. So the business in the week ahead is crucial.
