Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth's 2.0 has shattered many records at the box office and has set new benchmarks globally. The latest milestone, which the sci-fi venture has achieved is that it has become the highest Tamil grosser in the USA market with the whopping collections of $ 4.49 million.

Looking at the current scenario, we are expecting the film to cross the $ 5 million mark in the upcoming few days.

A sequel to Shankar's 2010 blockbuster Enthiran, 2.0 has been produced by Lyca Productions and released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi on November 29. 2.0, which features Rajinikanth in three different avatars, also stars Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson, Adil Hussain and Sudhanshu Pandey in important roles. Akshay, making his southern film debut, plays the antagonist in the film, which has been made on a budget of Rs 600 crore.

In the film, Rajinikanth plays a scientist and a robot. At the trailer launch of the film, Shankar raved about Rajinikanth's commitment."When we were all set to shoot the climax in a stadium in Delhi, Rajini Sir fell ill. Six months of planning had gone into the preparation of the climax which was supposed to be shot in 40 days. Despite his bad health, Rajini Sir insisted that we go ahead with the shoot," Shankar said. "We shot in extremely hot temperature. Rajini Sir had to shoot wearing 12 kg robotic suit. We were stunned by his commitment," he added.
