Continuing to stump Box Office records, director S.Shankar‘s dream project Robot 2.0, India’s mega-budget film, has managed to breach the Rs 700-crore mark in the two weeks of its theatrical run. Becoming the first ever Kollywood movie to cross Rs 700 crore, the movie stars Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson in the lead.
Riding the high tide on international shores, it is reported that while the movie will be released in 47000 plus 3D screens in China in 2019, in the US, 2.0 will be screened in over 100 theatres. Achieving milestone after milestone, the new feather in 2.0’s cap is the fact that no other Indian film has ever got the opportunity to have had an extended theatrical run in North America.
While in Tamil Nadu alone, the movie garnered Rs 166.98 crore in two weeks, trade analyst Manobala Vijayabalan revealed on his Twitter account that worldwide, the movie has managed to mint Rs 710.98 crore.
With its global message of making Earth a safe haven not only for humans but other living beings as well, the film has evidently managed to win many hearts. The whistle worthy performances of Amy Jackson and Akshay Kumar has rightly earned them their place in the 700 crore club for the first time. In the movie, Akshay Kumar plays the role of Richard/The Crow/Dr. Pakshirajan who is angry seeing the destruction of the environment due to excessive use of technology. “There is a moment in the story that emphasizes the other living creatures on planet earth. It says that the planet not only belongs to the human race but also to animals and birds. Though animals and plants cannot raise their voice against human beings, they have the right to live. So, do not spoil the mother nature” said Khiladi Kumar in an interview to IANS.
