Marvel Studio’s Avengers: Infinity War has created a storm at every box office in the world. Smashing records left and right without even breaking a sweat, the film has managed create new milestones for Hollywood films in India as well.
After the crown for the highest opening day collection of 2018 with 31.30 crores, the film has also successfully become the second highest weekend grosser of 2018 at 94.30 crores, after Padmaavat’s whooping 114.00 crores (Extended weekend). But that is not all. The superhero flick has also managed to become one of the highest weekend grossers of all time in India, a feat not yet achieved by any other Hollywood film.
Avengers: Infinity War currently ranks 14th on the list, with a close competition between it and Hrithik Roshan starrer Bang Bang, which now stand 15th at 94.13 crores. However, the Marvel film didn’t manage to surpass the Khans’ films like PK, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Chennai Express and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Still, the film has made history, achieving such numbers even though it had a much lower screen count compared to the others on the list.
Here’s the complete list of the top 15 highest weekend grossers in India:
Sultan- 180.36 cores
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo- 129.77 crores
Baahubali 2- 128 crores

The first week collections of Avengers: Infinity War will be a clear indicator of where the film stands. Since it is not facing any competition from other films at the India Box office, it should make the most of it. Also the film is receiving a lot of positive word of mouth, which will help the film’s collections in the weeks to come.
