Though the film didn't collect a big number on its opening day, but it has surely bounced high on its 4th day.

Leading trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest collection figure of 2.0.

There is no stopping Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar's movie 2.0 at the box office, whether it be in India or overseas. The sci-fi witnessed audiences flocking into theatres on Saturday and enjoying every minute of Rajinikanth aka Chitti's world and his battle with the evil Dr Richard (Akshay Kumar).

Box Office Report: Close to 100 cr in worldwide gross
Considering how popular and in- demand Akshay Kumar is in the North, the film's major collections are coming from there. Worldwide totally, 2.0 has comfortably grossed more than 90 CR on its first day, according to conservative estimates.

Even before 2.0's release, a report in Bollywood Hungama had claimed that the makers have already sold the satellite rights, digital rights and music rights for Rs 370 crore.

The film is being shot simultaneously in Tamil and Hindi respectively. In TN as a whole, the film has grossed close to 18 CR which is Rajini's 2nd best opener in the state below Kabali, but Shankar's career best.

On the other hand, the film has been doing a handsome business at overseas box offices. This is also the first time the actor will be seen playing a negative role in films. The film's music is composed by double Oscar victor AR Rahman. The film is anyways making money in the South languages and if Hindi version supports well too then recovery of the huge budget won't be an issue.

Overseas too, the film that marks the debut of Akshay Kumar in South has also performed well overseas and has raked in almost Rs 2 crore in the US, Rs 58 lakhs in Australia and over Rs 11 lakhs in New Zealand.
