Going global: Rajnikanth, Akshay Kumar's '2.0' heads to China

'2.0' brought together Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Director S. Shankar for the first time.
NEW DELHI: After the release of 'Mom' and 'Andhadhun' in China, Akshay Kumar and Rajnikanth starrer '2.0' is set to hit Chinese theatres on July 12.

Akshay Kumar tweeted the release date of the film and also shared a poster for the Chinese audience.

'2.0' is the sequel to the 2010 film 'Enthiran' which was released in Hindi as 'Robot'.

The film marked the return of superstar Rajinikanth in his role as Dr Vaseegaran and Chitti- the robot- while Akshay essayed his nemesis, Richard- a scientist who turns eccentric after a botched experiment.

Touted as one of the most expensive films in the history of cinema, the film witnessed Kumar as the antagonist while Rajinikanth is seen saving the world from his wrath.

The film received a superb start at the box office as it earned Rs. 20.25 crores on the very first day of its release.

The reboot, '2.0' brought together Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Director S. Shankar for the first time.

Released last year, the film hit Indian screens on November 29.

Dulquer Salmaan's "O Kadhal Kanmani" co-star Nithya Menen has also bagged her first Bollywood film - "Mission Mangal"."In the past also, I was offered plenty of Hindi films. I just wanted to be as choosy with Hindi as I was with films in other languages that I have done. I wanted it (debut Hindi film) to be a really nice film," Nithya told IANS."I found this a nice character. I don't think we have done a film like this... you know, a space film," added the star, who made her debut as a lead actress with Kannada film "7 O'Clock" over a decade ago.(Image: Nithya Menen/Instagram)
