The Marvel superhero film, Shang Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings opened very well at Indian box office. The film has recorded close to INR 3 crore nett on Friday at box office in India.
The film had a good advance booking also, which should have led to even a higher number. But this is still a very encouraging number, since it is the highest opening day number since the restart of cinemas in India in July – including all Hindi releases. The film has done well especially in Hindi markets – Delhi and UP.
Since the film opened to largely positive reviews, it is expected to see an upwards growth and rake in around INR 12-13 crore nett over the weekend.
Fast & Furious on the other hand, has seen a slight dip in collection on Friday, its Day 2 largely because of mixed reviews and stiff competition from new release, Shang Chi at the box office. The film also saw a delayed release in India, which had led to people largely consuming the film on torrent sites.
Day 1, Thursday – 2 cr nett
Day 2, Friday – 1.5 cr nett
Total – 3.5 cr nett
The film is expected to make another 2.5 cr nett over next two days, taking the 4-day weekend collections to 6 cr nett.
