Rajinikanth's 2.0 has set the US box office on fire. The movie has done an impressive business in the first weekend in the North America and made a decent collection on its fifth day (Monday). The countdown for the multilingual film to breach into $4-million club has started.

The movie faced some issues prior to the premiere shows, leading to the cancellation of numerous shows. As a result, 2.0 started its journey on a low note as it earned $982,929 in comparison to Baahubali 2, which had minted $3 million from the premiere and first day.

As the Shankar's creation was welcomed with average-to-positive reviews, the collection of 2.0 saw a marginal dip on its second day by raking in $727,038. However, the movie came out with flying colours on Saturday as it collected $1,299,854.

The business dropped once again on Sunday and the Rajinikanth-starrer earned $1,299,854 to end its first weekend at $3,753,667. The early reports emerging from the trade indicate that it has earned $66,216 to take its total collection to $3,819,718 in five days. It has to be noted that the complete report is yet to be out from the US and the aforementioned numbers will change.

2.0 is the second highest grossing Tamil movie in the US. Rajinikanth's Kabali is in the numero uno position by grossing $4,585,808.
