Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar’s film 2.0 is on a record-breaking spree. First, its trailer garnered 25 million views in less than 24 hours on YouTube and now the film has crossed another milestone as its one million tickets have already been sold in advance, according to trade analyst Ramesh Bala.
The pre-sale numbers reported by Bala are much more than that of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War and S S Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning.

A statement from Book my show also stated that over 1 million tickets have been booked on the site already for 2.0. Meanwhile, Thugs of Hindostan that released this Diwali collected over 50 crores on its opening day making it the highest opener of Indian cinema yet.
If this turns out to be true, 2.0 will have an exceptional box office collection on its opening day. The trade analysts are predicting its day one collection at Rs 100 crore worldwide.
Those who are planning to watch it on pirated versions will have a hard time laying their hands on it as the Madras High Court has directed 37 internet service providers (ISPs) to block over 12,000 websites that exhibit pirated versions of Tamil movies.
Watch: 2.0 Movie Review
As per the early reviews, fans and critics alike are calling the film 'mind-blowing' and the much-hyped VFX are well appreciated by them. The long-awaited sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Robot is receiving a rousing reception with trade analysts predicting its day one collection at Rs 100 crore worldwide.
2.0 has, however, been a long time coming. The film, which was originally set to arrive in cinemas last year on Diwali, was later pushed to a December 2017 debut. It was once again moved a month further to January 2018, in order to allow more time for post-production. After too much rescheduling, the Rajinikanth-Akshay starrer finally releases today.
Touted as the most expensive film in the Indian cinema, Shankar's directorial is a sequel to 2010 blockbuster Robot. 2.0 also features Adil Hussain, Sudhanshu Pandey and Amy Jackson in key roles. AR Rahman has composed the music for the film.
