Avengers: Endgame has become the highest grossing Hollywood film in India, overtaking its predecessor Avengers: Infinity War’s lifetime earnings in less than a week. The Marvel superhero film has made Rs 244 crore (nett) in six days, and Rs 290 crore gross. Infinity War had concluded its run with around Rs 230 crore nett.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh called the performance an ‘eye-opener’ and said that the film is competing with the biggest Hindi films of all time, and could challenge Dangal’s lifetime business as well. The Aamir Khan-starrer is the highest grossing Hindi film of all time.

Endgame has already posted the biggest opening day and biggest opening weekend for a Hollywood film in India, and the number two opening of all time, behind Baahubali: The Conclusion. The film was released in 2800 screens, less than half of Baahubali 2’s 6500 screens. “#AvengersEndgame is competing with the biggest hits from *Hindi* film industry... Has stamina to cross *lifetime biz* of #Dangal,” wrote Taran on Twitter.

He continued, “#AvengersEndgame is the highest grossing film of 2019 so far.” The film has overtaken the likes of Uri: The Surgical Strike, Gully Boy, Total Dhamaal and others. Taran wrote that every future Hindi release will be compared to Avengers: Endgame.

Internationally, the film is on track to challenge Avatar’s all-time record, having already broken the opening weekend records in multiple territories. The film made an unprecedented $1.2 billion in its first three days, almost double that of Infinity War. The film’s current worldwide tally is $1.4 billion.
