Avengers: Endgame has now become the highest grossing Hollywood film in India with the collection of Rs 244.55 crore in six days. The Marvel film earned Rs 28.50 crore on Wednesday and added beautifully to its glorious week-day run at the Box Office. Avengers: Endgame seems to be refusing to slow down on weekdays and maintaining consistency in its collection. This is outstanding considering only a few Indian films like Baahubali 2 and Dangal could manage to rake in this kind of numbers at the ticket window before. What is more striking is the fact that Avengers: Endgame is breaking records and making new ones despite having a non-festive release and language barrier for a pan-India audience.
The latest Box Office breakup of Avengers: Endgame is:
Friday: Rs 53.60 cr
Saturday: Rs 52.20 cr
Sunday: Rs 52.85 cr
Monday: Rs 31.05 cr
Tuesday: Rs 26.10 cr
Wednesday: Rs 28.50 cr
Total: Rs 244.30 cr
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh called the performance of Avengers: Endgame an ‘eye-opener’. He wrote in his tweet, “Phenomenal biz of #AvengersEndgame is an eye-opener, wake up call for our industry… #AvengersEndgame is competing with the biggest hits from *Hindi* film industry… Has stamina to cross *lifetime biz* of #Dangal [highest grosser of *Hindi* industry]. India biz.” (sic)
He further mentioned the latest Box Ofice figures of the film and wrote, “#AvengersEndgame is on a record-smashing spree… Holiday on Wed [some states] proved advantageous… Now highest grossing #Hollywood film in #India… Fri 53.60 cr, Sat 52.20 cr, Sun 52.85 cr, Mon 31.05 cr, Tue 26.10 cr, Wed 28.50 cr. Total: ₹ 244.30 cr Nett BOC. India biz.” (sic)
What’s more? Avengers: Endgame has also emerged as the highest grossing film of the year so far. While there are many Bollywood biggies that are yet to hit the screens in 2019, the collection of the superhero film appears to be unchallengeable. Adarsh wrote about the same and tweeted, “#AvengersEndgame is the highest grossing film of 2019 *so far*… It’s a bit too early to guesstimate its *lifetime biz*, but one thing is certain… Like #Baahubali2 [#Hindi], every *forthcoming* #Hindi biggie will be compared to #AvengersEndgame henceforth.” (sic)
We wonder if Dr Strange had foreseen this as well!
