Kamaal R Khan aka KRK has now found a new target in director Shankar's sci-fi thriller 2.0 starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar. As soon as the first day collection of 2.0 were out, the self-proclaimed film critic tried to knock down Akshay Kumar for not being able to pull enough audience to theatres to help the movie register a record-breaking business at the box office.

Calling Akshay Kumar a B-grade actor, KRK said on Twitter, "If even Ranveer Singh and Ranbir kapoor alone gets 30Cr+ opening and Akshay kumar can't get 20Cr Opening with 600Cr film #2.0 along with #Rajnikanth also, So he is a B grade actor, not a super star."

However, Twitter users brutally slammed him for posting wrong information and informed him that Ranveer Singh's biggest opener was Padmaavat which had collected Rs 19 crore on the first day of its release. As of Ranbir, his Sanju biopic directed by Rajkumar Hirani had collected Rs 34.75 crore on the opening day.

But KRK didn't stop there. He further went on to question 2.0 director Shankar after the latter thanked the audience for their overwhelming response in theatres on the opening day.

"My heart full thanks to the audience who have lapped up #2point0 and celebrated and made it a huge success, and to all the media who supported and respected the hard work of our team, and to my whole team who have given a piece of their life to 2.0," Shankar had tweeted.

To which KRK replied, "Sir! How are you calling it successful, when it's a disaster and producers will loss approx 200Cr?" Post his reply, Shankar seems to have blocked him from his Twitter timeline.


Meanwhile, 2.0 has collected Rs 61 crore nett (Hindi - Rs 20 crore, Tamil Nadu + AP/TG + Karnataka + Kerala - Rs 41 crore), according to break-up shared by trade analyst Sumit Kadel on Twitter. The movie has now become the second highest opener in India of all time after Baahubali 2 which collected Rs 121 crore nett on the opening day in all languages.
