The Lion King is ruling the box-office. The film, which opened to mixed reviews, is performing remarkably well at the India box office and has crossed 80 crore mark in one week.

The Disney remake has raked in a total of 81.57 crore in just seven days of its run at the box office. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office collection on Twitter. The film, which hit theatres on last Friday, garnered a decent 11.06 crore on its first day, and quickly picked up the pace and emerged as the third biggest Hollywood opener of all time.

The film saw an increase in numbers on Saturday and Sunday, earning 19.15 crore and 24.54 crore respectively, paving its way to the 50 crore club.


The movie witnessed a decline on Monday and Tuesday, minting 7.90 crore and 7.02 crore respectively and recorded even smaller numbers on Wednesday and Thursday, earning 6.25 crore and 5.65 crore, taking its grand total to 81.57 crore.

The film crossed 50 crore mark on Monday, becoming the second Hollywood movie to join the club post opening weekend in 2019, the first one being Avengers: Endgame. With the screenplay written by Jeff Nathanson and songs by legends like Elton John and Time Rice, the movie is directed by Jon Favreau.

The Disney film features Donald Glover lending his voice to Simba and John Oliver as Zazu and Seth Rogen lends his voice to Pumbaa. The film had hit the theatres on July 19 in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
