Avengers: Endgame’s astounding Rs 53 crore opening in India has beaten the biggest first day totals of films starring the three Khans of Bollywood - Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.
Once considered unbeatable at the box office, 2018 saw each of the three actors deliver box office duds. While Aamir starred in the action adventure Thugs of Hindostan, Shah Rukh played a dwarf in Zero and Salman led an ensemble cast in Race 3.
On Friday, Avengers: Endgame opened to Rs 53 crores in India, making it the second biggest opening in Indian box office history, following Baahubali: The Conclusion’s Rs 121 crore opening. The film narrowly edged out Aamir’s Thugs of Hindostan, which opened to Rs 52.25 crore in 2018 - the highest for a Hindi language film.
Endgame’s opening makes it the biggest Hollywood debut in India ever, beating out Avengers: Infinity War’s Rs 31 crore Friday debut in 2018. The film is poised to break the all-time opening weekend record in the United States, after a mammoth $150 million opening day. Endgame will become the first film in history to crack the $300 million mark at the US box office in the opening weekend, and could touch $1 billion worldwide - also an unprecedented feat.
