Official: 2.0 enters the elite Rs 500 crore club
2.0 continues to set the box office on fire. The makers have announced that the gross earnings of the movie has crossed the Rs 500 crore mark. Only a handful of Indian movies like the Baahubali films and Dangal feature in the elite club, and 2.0 is the latest entrant. Through their official social media handle, Lyca Productions shared a new poster and tweeted,

Karan Johar, whose Dharma Productions is releasing the Hindi version, has tweeted,

Both the Hidni and Tamil versions of 2.0 have been doing great business during the working days which is a great sign. With the weekend coming, the box office figures are expected to go up. 2.0’s Hindi version alone has crossed the Rs 100 crore mark. It has also surpassed the lifetime collections of Baahubali: The Beginning (Hindi).
Releasing in a record number of screens on November 29, 2.0 opened to phenomenal response, both in the Indian and overseas box office. While the movie continues to excel in the domestic and major international centres like UK and US, the makers are planning for a mega release in China. The movie will be releasing in a whopping 56,000 screens in the country. Out of this, around 47,000 screens will release the film in 3D format. If they manage to do so, it will be the widest 3D release for any foreign language film in history. Lyca have associated with HY Media, one of China’s leading distributors.
