One of the biggest release this year was Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed Padmaavat. The epic movie starred Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles. The movie had unimaginable hype around it thanks to its year-long brush with controversy. The movie's opening day collection was Rs 24 crore. Well, the update is that Avengers: Infinity War has beaten that number. The movie's box office collection on day 1 is Rs 31.3 crore. What a feat! This should be an eye-opener for Bollywood. We are looking forward to seeing what will be the weekend collection of this Marvel movie. We are sure, quite a few records will be shattered over the next two days. And lifetime collections? Let us not even get there.
Deepika Padukone's Padmaavat is not the only one Avengers: Infinity War has managed to beat. But Tiger Shroff's biggest hit to date, Baaghi 2 has suffered the same fate. Baaghi 2's opening day collections were Rs 25.10 crore. The movie has even smashed box office records by a movies of Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan. More update on that later.
Talking to ScreenRant, director Joe Russo has said, "We’re telling the story of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, not the Marvel Comic Book Universe. Like growing up I’m a huge comic book fan. I still have my entire collection, in my closet. For me, I’m not interested as a director, or as a comic book fan, in any literal interpretation of a book. I know that story. I’ve read it. I’m not going to go to the theatre and be surprised by it, We’re interested in surprising you. Borrowing elements and the mojo from it but in completing this giant mosaic of the story that’s being told in these movies, not in those books, which is why Death [the character] is not in this film."
