Rajamouli, who is now regarded as the number one director in India, saw humiliation from the Chinese audiences.
His “Baahubali” movies were rejected totally in China while the rest of the world lapped it up.
It was still a mystery for Rajamouli why his movies that boast of opulent sets and international-standard VFX didn’t win the hearts of the Chinese audience.
Director Shankar hoped to prove his upper hand over Rajamouli at least in the Chinese market with “2.0” but he got a rude shock.
The movie is not working at the Chinese ticket window at all. It has already been declared flop in China after seeing its performance in its first weekend.
The film opened to poor response there and no visible growth is witnessed. This is one of the worst openings for an Indian film in the dragon market.
“2.0” starred Superstar Rajinikanth in the lead role and Akshay Kumar appeared in a negative role.
Despite the presence of Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, the Chinese audiences didn’t show much interest.
It will be pulled out from the theaters from tomorrow.
