Chennai, Dec 3 (IANS) The makers of superstar Rajinikanths "2.0" on Monday revealed that the film has grossed Rs 400 crore at the box office worldwide in its opening weekend.
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.
Lyca Productions, via an official poster, revealed that the film has grossed Rs 400 crore.

"We shot in extremely hot temperature. Rajini Sir had to shoot wearing 12 kg robotic suit. We were stunned by his commitment," he added.
