The Lion King, Disney remake of the classic animated film, is roaring at the box office and has already crossed the Rs 50 crore mark at the Indian ticket windows. The film showed massive growth during the weekend and collected around Rs 54.75 crore at the domestic box office.

According to film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, The Lion King collected around Rs 24.54 crore on Sunday. It had opened at Rs 11 crore on Friday and went on to show a 70% growth on Saturday with collections of Rs 19.15 crore. Among the Hollywood releases in India, The Lion King is only behind two Marvel blockbusters: Avengers Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War.



In North America, The Lion King opened with $185 million debut to earn a 10-day worldwide total of $531 million through Sunday, said Hollywood Reporter; the film opened in China a week early. The film has been directed by Jon Favreau and features an all-star voice cast led by Donald Glover and Beyoncé. The Hindi version is headlined by Shah Rukh Khan and son Aryan Khan.

Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 has entered the Rs 100 crore club. The film collected around Rs 11.68 crore on Sunday. This takes its 10-day total to Rs 100.58 crore. It crossed the Rs 100 crore mark faster than the actor’s 2017 film, Kaabil, which took around two weeks to reach the same milestone.

Sharing the box office collections of the film, Taran tweeted, “Super30 crosses Rs 100 cr... Grabs a major chunk of market share, despite local and #Hollywood movies proving tough competitors... Biz multiplied rapidly on [second] Sat and Sun... [Week 2] Fri 4.52 cr, Sat 8.53 cr, Sun 11.68 cr. Total: Rs 100.58 cr. India biz.”


Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh continues to make records in India and abroad. The film has crossed the $1 million mark in Australia. Sharing the news on Twitter, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “KabirSingh is the first *Indian film* to cross A$ 1 million mark in #Australia in 2019... The film - still running in theatres - has surpassed *lifetime biz* of several biggies, including #GullyBoy, #Uri, #Bharat, #Kalank, #Kesari and #TotalDhamaal in #Australia... Data follows.”



Taran credited the good performance of the films during the weekend to the end of ICC Cricket World Cup. He tweeted, “Weekend biz gets a boost again, post #CWC19 cricket matches... Biz of three films especially - #TheLionKing, #Super30 and #KabirSingh - skyrocketed everywhere on Sat and Sun... Housefull boards are back... And so are #AchheDin for the trade!”
