2.0 had already recovered a major part of its budget before its release through advance bookings, satellite and digital rights. 2.0 has been made at an exorbitant budget and boasts of never-seen-before VFX in an Indian film. Its great run at the box office might face some competition from Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero that releases on December 21 and Kannada star Yash’s KGF which is releasing in five languages, but till then it will have a field day at the box office.
