Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 was set to hit the Chinese cinema this July. The Shankar directorial was one of the costliest movies to be made in India. The thriller was produced on a mammoth budget of Rs 543 crore. The movie did wonders at the box office when it released in India back in November 2018. Now, the sci-fi flick is eyeing to take over China market. A few weeks ago, it was announced that 2.0 is heading to China, riding on 56,000 screens. 

The movie is slated to release on July 12. However, as per a new report, the movie might not release in July. We'd suggest that you take the news with a pinch of salt given there have not been the announcement. According to The Tamil Hindu, HY Media might back out from releasing the movie in China as the makers feel 2.0 might not mint more than 25 million dollars. Given that Batman, another big budget flick, did not do well, there is a perception that 2.0 might not perform well at the box office either. 

To top it off, The Lion King is slated to release around the same time as 2.0. Given the mammoth Disney movie could open with huge numbers, 2.0 could not get enough screens. Until last month, 2.0 was expected to release on 56,000 screens. It was to be one of the biggest releases for a foreign film in China. 

2.0 collected Rs 239 crore in India when it released last year. On the worldwide, the Enthiran aka Robot sequel earned Rs 268 crore, as per Box Office India. If the movie would release in China, it would join the league of Dangal, 3 Idiots, PK, Secret Superstar, Hichki, Hindi Medium and Andhadhun.
