Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0’ knows no stopping as the hugely-successful film has become the 4th highest earning one this year. Read review here.

The Hindi version of the Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer has, till it's 11th day on the box office, earned Rs 164 crore. It is now only behind ‘Sanju’ (Rs 342 crore), ‘Padmaavat’ (Rs 302 crore) and ‘Race 3’(Rs 166 crore). 

Directed by S Shankar, the film is said to be in the race in for the 3rd position, replacing Salman Khan’s ‘Race 3’ as it might cross the lifetime collection of it too by the end of this day, according to BoxOffice India.

The entire credit for the victory goes to director Shankar, producer Subaskaran of Lyca Productions and the technicians.”
