Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed that the film collected a whopping Rs 41 core on its opening day. Sharing the film’s box office collection, Taran Adarsh tweeted: “Avatar is fantabulous on day 1…South markets go on an overdrive, historic numbers… North ranges from very good to excellent… Has scope to grow in mass pockets… Fri Rs 41 cr+ nett BOC. India biz. All versions.”

In a separate tweet, Taran Adarsh revealed that the film is the 2nd biggest Hollywood opener in India. The first being Marvel’s Avengers Endgame, which fetched Rs 53.10 crore on its opening day. The third biggest Hollywood opener is Spider-Man: No Way Home, which collected Rs 32.67 crore on its release day, followed by Avengers Infinity War (with an opening day collection of Rs 31.30 crore).
