Deadpool 2 starring Ryan Reynolds has concluded its first week in India by collecting Rs 48.88 crore at the box office.
The film kickstarted its innings at the box office with a bang, emerging as the fourth biggest opener of the year and collected Rs 33 crore in its opening weekend.
However, Deadpool 2 falls short in the weekdays as the film failed to maintain its momentum created over the first weekend.
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film concluded its opening week at the box office by collecting Rs 48.88 crore in India.
The film’s performance would have been a pretty solid one if Hollywood’s juggernaut Avengers: Infinity War would not have raised the bar for English films by emerging the second highest grossing film of 2018 and the highest grossing Hollywood film ever in India.
Considering the fact that the film released after the enormous success of Avengers 3, the stakes were high for the film as it was one of the most awaited Hollywood films of 2018 in India.
Nonetheless, Deadpool 2 had its fair share of glory at the box office in India by surpassing the lifetime collections of many Bollywood releases of 2018 in just seven days of the film’s release.
Well, from the film’s performance in India it’s quite safe to say that Deadpool 2 will close its market by making more than Rs 50 crore from the Indian cinema houses.
Directed by David Letich, Deadpool 2 also stars Josh Brolin, Karan Soni, TJ Miller, Morena Baccarin and Julian Dennison. The film was released worldwide on May 18 in 2D and 3D.
