2.0 in dire need of a big opening


Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar’s sci-fi drama ‘2.0’ is up for release this week and the film needs a massive push at the box office. ‘2.0’ is reportedly made on a massive budget of Rs 550 crore and to make a good profit, the film needs to rake in a great opening day number as it hits the screens on Thursday. When ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ failed to keep up after a first day score of over Rs 50 crore, ‘2.0’ will have to fight a similar battle. While the makers of ‘2.0’ have already recovered Rs 370 crore from the film’s digital and satellite rights, Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar will need all their fans’ might to make it a profit-making venture.
