Avengers: Endgame has been smashing box office records and setting new ones all over the world. The Marvel film, that released in India on Friday, April 26, has earned Rs 244 crore till Wednesday, becoming the highest grossing film in India so far this year. It is safe to assume that the film will surpass the first collection week of Baahubali: The Conlusion (Hindi).
Wednesday being a holiday in some states because of Labor Day proved advantageous for the film, which earned Rs 28 crore on that day. Endgame has managed to rake in huge numbers without the help of an extended weekend, holiday or festival. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the earnings of the film in India so far.
