Avenger: Endgame is setting new records at the Indian box office. After a week, the film is already the most successful Hollywood film in India having made Rs259.50 crore nett in India, as reported by Boxofficeindia.com. After making a staggering Rs159.50 crore nett in its opening weekend, Avengers: Endgame had performed remarkably well over the week too, adding another Rs100 crore.

The Marvel film was released on 2,850 screens [all languages] in India. Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the previous film in the franchise, was released on 2,000 screens in India and it had made Rs227 crore nett in its India business.

Trade analyst Atul Mohan says, “Avengers: Endgame has set the Indian box office on fire. Its success once again shows that if you get your content right, then Indian audiences are willing to pay a high ticket price too. I think the India collection is the third or fourth highest for the Hollywood film globally. The India collection is bigger than countries likes Australia, Bahrain.”

The top two highest Hollywood nett earners are Avengers: Endgame (2019), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), followed by The Jungle Book (2016) that had made Rs187.74 crore nett, Fast & Furious 7 (2015) with Rs97.86 crore nett, and Jurassic World is at the fifth spot with Rs90.62 crore nett.

In terms of the highest first-week collection in India, Avengers: Endgame is still behind Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017) that made a record Rs342.59 crore nett.

Meanwhile, holdover release Kalank (2018) made Rs6.50 crore nett in its second week. The Dharma Productions film has so far collected Rs78.68 crore nett in India business. The film is made at an estimated budget of Rs160 crore nett.

The Tashkent Files collected Rs3.75 crore nett in its third week, that was better than its first week business of Rs3.49 crore nett. The Tashkent Files has so far collected Rs11.41 crore nett in its India business. The film’s budget is around Rs12.50 crore. The film, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, had started with limited screens (250 screens) and once Kalank, and later Avengers was released, these were reduced to just over 100 screens.
