According to Taran Adarsh, 2.0's (Hindi) Monday figures also suggest that the film will perform relatively well at the box office through the week. "After packing an impressive total in its *extended* opening weekend, 2.0 stays super-strong on the crucial Mon… Collecting double digits on a working day [Mon] – without enhanced ticket rates – indicates it has stamina to perform well on weekdays. Note: HINDI version," he tweeted.
