With every passing day anticipation for South superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar‘s 2.0 is only growing. If yu think Baahubali was huge, then wait till 2.o hits screens as this sci-fi thriller is touted to be the biggest Indian movie to release, surpassing even the Prabhas starrer mega blockbuster. Now, there’s a buzz doing the rounds that the film is not only going to get a huge nationwide release in January, but also a massive one worldwide that could perhaps even beat Dangal’s record. Trade expert Ramesh Bala took to Twitter recently to reveal that the film will have a Chinese dubbed version and it will be released across 10,000 to 15,000 screens in China.

This is indeed an impressive number of screens for an Indian movie in China. The credit for this entirely goes to Dangal that showcased amazing performance in the Chinese market, thereby opening the audiences to Indian cinema. However, there is no report as of now suggesting that the Chinese release will take place simultaneously with the Indian one.

We are planning to set up large LED screens for people who cannot get into the venue so that they can enjoy the grand gala. Apart from A.R. Rahman, we are yet to zero in on who is performing and who is not. We are speaking to high-profile actors from India and abroad to grace the event.”
Written and directed by S. Shankar, co-written by B. Jeyamohan and produced by Subaskaran Allirajah, founder of Lyca Productions, 2.0 is expected to be an Indian science fiction film.

The movie will be released simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
