Total: ₹ 33.40 cr NettBOC. Of course, the fact that Deadpool was such a great success across the globe helped its sequel’s case greatly. — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) May 21, 2018
But what is even more mind-boggling is that Deadpool 2 has crossed the lifetime collection of its prequel, Deadpool here. Deadpool 2 has tumbled Bollywood star Alia Bhatt’s recently released flick, Raazi as the sixth highest weekend grosser this year. The record for the highest weekend grosser in India is currently held by Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat (Rs 114 crore). Deadpool 2 is set to topple Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest offering, Avengers: Infinity War too at the US box office, as per reports. Avengers: Infinity War comes a close second with an impressive collection of Rs 94.30 crore. The film has already become the highest A rated film in the country. Following their leads are Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 2 (Rs 73.10 crore). Ajay Devgn’s Raid (Rs 41.01 crore) and Akshay Kumar’s movie PadMan (Rs 40.05 crore). The movie is likely to mint around Rs 75 crore in India. Meghna Gulzar’s directorial Raazi has done fairly well for itself with a collection of Rs 32.94 crore. #Deadpool2 has a ₹ 33 cr+ opening weekend, which is a good number… The real test begins from today onwards… Biz on weekdays is crucial… Fri 11.25 cr, Sat 10.65 cr, Sun 11.50 cr. The Marvel film has made over Rs 33 crore at Indian box office within only three days of its release. If reports are to be believed, the recently released Deadpool 2 is all set to create a new benchmark in terms of collection. But as Reynolds gets other people to match his wits against, Deadpool 2 starts hitting the spots it wants too, much more effortlessly than its prequel.”
