The film witnessed the fastest advance booking records in history, it has already collected 10 crore net on Monday night, according to Box Office India. Achieving these numbers ten days ahead of its release is truly a feat, and in the coming days this number is expected to rise.
Sequel to Avatar (2009), the highest grossing film of the world till date, Avatar: The Way of Water is already ahead in the box office race with its pre-bookings. On a path to break records, Avatar: The Way of Water has seen high anticipation not only in the central market, but also in the southern markets of India, as the film is releasing in multiple Indian languages including Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
