Avengers: Infinity War has ended its week one on a high note. The film has been doing record-breaking business all over the world and in India too it has created quite a few records beating not just all the Hollywood releases in the country but even the biggest of Bollywood blockbusters. So much so, that the week one collection of Avengers: Infinity War is even bigger than the Sanjay Leela Bhansali magnum opus Padmaavat.
While Padmaavat made Rs 155.50 crore in 7 days of its release, which also included Rs 5 crore from paid previews, Avengers: Infinity War made Rs 156.64 crore in the same duration.
As far as its day 7 is concerned then for the first time since its release, the superhero saga’s daily collection went below the double digits. Avengers: Infinity War made Rs 9.73 crore.
Talking about the figures, Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, “#AvengersInfinityWar is speeding towards ₹ 200 cr mark [NBOC]… Fri 31.30 cr, Sat 30.50 cr, Sun 32.50 cr, Mon 20.52 cr, Tue 20.34 cr, Wed 11.75 cr, Thu 9.73 cr.

According to movie ticket booking site BookMyShow, Avengers: Infinity War has set the new records on their platform as it became the first Hollywood film to sell an unprecedented 12 tickets a second when the bookings were at its peak on the weekend. BookMyShow has so far sold over 3.5 million tickets for this mega blockbuster and has contributed close to 45% to the film’s opening weekend collection in India.
The advance sales of the film were driven majorly by its English version given the high decibel buzz surrounding it. However, once the film released on April 27, 2018, BookMyShow witnessed a huge spike in the tickets sales for regional language versions of the film. 74% sales for its Hindi version happened post the release of the film indicating the massive role played by strong word of mouth.
