Looks like Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0’ will have a grander theatrical release than expected earlier as the film is most likely to release in close to 10000 screens globally. Yes, 10,000!

We informed you yesterday that ‘2.0’might topple the previous record-holder Prabhas’ ‘Baahubali’ in the highest number of screen release in India, hogging close to 6600-6800 instead of 6500 screens that ‘Baahubali 2’ had. Trade analyst Ramesh Bala has new information on the screens booked for the film and the number is 7500 in the domestic market. See posters. 

The film has close to 2500 screens booked worldwide, taking the gross number to a staggering 10000.

As the most expensive film till date in India, ‘2.0’ will release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions and Karan Johar will present the Hindi version under his banner Dharma Productions. Apparently, it is the first Indian film, which is entirely shot in 3D. See trailer here. 

Produced under the banner of Lyca Productions, the film also stars Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey in pivotal roles.

It is set to hit the screens on November 29.
