Shankar and 2.0 To Share Rajinikanth Burden
Despite weak reviews from critics and divided word of mouth publicity, Super Star Rajinikanth has alone shouldered the entire burden of ‘Kabali’ to rake astounding collections. According to a report, Rajinikanth’s brand image helped ‘Kabali’ to collect a net of approximately Rs. 180 Crores by the weekend. With a divided talk, these are magical figures for any hero and Rajini’s charisma is unparalleled.
On to audience verdict wise, Rajini has definitely disappointed us in reaching up to the expectations with his last three films. ‘Kochchadaiyaan’ (Vikrama Simha in Telugu), ‘Lingaa’ and ‘Kabali’ have never matched the hype and hoopla generated during pre release. So, the onus is now shifted on to Rajini’s next film ‘2.0’ which hasn’t got any official release date announced till now.
Director Shankar’s ‘Robot’ and ‘Shivaji’ are real blockbusters in Rajinikanth career. So, ‘2.0’ coming as next movie from Rajinikanth will have to share the burden of last failures and high expectations. Let us see, what Shankar is here to offer us in coming days.
