Marvel's superhero spectacle Avengers: Endgame hauled in to record 104 crore nett at the Indian box office in just two days. Shattering the all-time nationwide opening record by bringing in more than Rs 53 crore, the Russo brothers' directorial had another huge day at the Indian box office as it collected approximately Rs 51 crore nett plus on its second day, reports Box Office India.

The report predicts that the collections of the film will bounce along over the weekend in a similar range due to the huge advance numbers already there for the film. However, it will be Monday to see how big the numbers will grow. The film is expected to earn 155-160 crore nett over the weekend.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the box office figures of the Marvel film. He wrote, "#AvengersEndgame is rewriting record books... Puts up a HISTORIC total on Day 2... Eyes ₹ 150 cr+ weekend... No biggie from *Hindi* film industry has achieved the target so far... Fri 53.10 cr, Sat 51.40 cr. Total: ₹ 104.50 cr Nett BOC. India biz. Gross BOC: ₹ 124.40 cr." (sic)

Meanwhile, Avengers: Endgame has beaten Aamir Khan-starrer Thugs of Hindostan record, which earned Rs 52.25 crore on its first day of the release.

As per film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has emerged as the biggest opener from the Hindi film industry. He added that moviegoers are willing to pay a hefty amount if the film is worth the price.

"The unimaginable craze for #AvengersEndgame only goes to prove, yet again, that the moviegoers are willing to dig into their wallets/purses and shell out exorbitant money for tickets *if* the film is worth it... The charm of watching a film on big screen will never fade," he wrote in another tweet.

Before this, Endgame's prequel, Avengers: Infinity War had opened to Rs 31 crore in 2018, and was the highest grossing Hollywood film in India. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, on the other hand, collected an estimated Rs 122.03 (cumulative figure of all languages). The multi-lingual fantasy drama collected an estimated total of Rs 40.75 crore from the Hindi market. The remaining Rs 81 crore was amassed from the other regional markets.
