As we all know that Akshay Kumar would play the antagonist in Rajinikanth-starrer 2.O, a sequel to Robot. This is the first time the actor would be starring in a South film.

The latest development, we hear, is that Akshay had reached Chennai on Saturday to shoot for his part in the film. Rajnikanth has already started shooting for the film. The movie also stars Amy Jackson opposite Rajini.


  1. I know its too early to tak abt d box offc collectn. But my early predctn for the movie is 750cr gross world wide(without China)AT LEAST with positive Word of mouth.

  2. For a normal audience,
    1) Superstar Director Rajamouli’s film
    2)COSTLIEST MOVIE in the history of Indian cinema(it was the total budget of the 2 movies but they advertised it as the costliest movie ever)
    3)Not so popular actor/cast
    4)world class technicians/workers

    ROBOT 2
    1)Superstar Director
    2)Costliest movie ever with a 350cr budget (costliest movie currently cost 160cr(Dhoom 3))
    3)Multi star film. Highest paid stars. of Indian cinema.
    4)world class technicians
    5)A very popular genre

  3. Baahubali made Rs 500 cr india with great word of mouth and lesser advantages than Robot 2. So i think with the star power of AKSHAY hindi version will get huge boost and possibly it can touch at least a net collection of 150cr.(1st part collected below 30 cr)Rajini sir flop movies will collect minimum 100cr gross(gross nd net same for some tamil films bcz no tax for U certified movie).I think its a smart move to add Akshay sir in it.
