Considering the mass hysteria that was seen regarding the tickets booking for Avengers: Endgame, it was expected that this movie will shatter records at India box office and it did but what many hadn’t expected that it would break the records of all the Hindi films. On its opening day, that’s what happened. Before Avengers: Endgame, it was Aamir Khan starrer Thugs of Hindostan that held the record of the highest day one ever for a Bollywood film and third highest day one for an Indian film.
Avengers: Endgame beat Thugs of Hindostan’s opening day record and became the third highest day one opener in India behind 2.0 and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. And on its day 2, it has even surpassed 2.0 and has scored yet another half-century thereby hitting a century at the box office in just two days of its release. On its day 2, Avengers: Endgame collected Rs 51.40 crore nett (Rs 61.19 crore gross), taking its two days total to an unthinkable Rs 104.50 crore nett (Rs 124.40 crore gross).
And when one only takes into consideration the Bollywood films and the Hindi version of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion then Avengers: Endgame is miles ahead. While Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’s Hindi version collected Rs 100 crore in three days, it took Avengers: Endgame only two days.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, in a series of tweets, wrote, “#AvengersEndgame crosses ? cr in *2 days*… #Baahubali2 [#Hindi] crossed ? in *3 days* and so did the biggies from the *Hindi* film industry… #AvengersEndgame is all set to have the highest ever opening weekend… Boxoffice is on .”. His followed it up with, “#Baahubali2 [#Hindi] rewrote the rules of the game exactly 2 years ago [April 2017]… Almost everyone felt that the records attained by the film will remain unchallenged/unsurpassable for a long, long time… But #AvengersEndgame is challenging it right now!”
