Avengers: Infinity War has set the box office on fire ever since it released across the world on April 27. The Marvel superhero film not only performed well in America, but in India too.
In fact, after breaking 25 records at the worldwide box office, looks like Avengers: Infinity War has made 11 new records in India too.
The film had a huge buzz surrounding it before its release and once the superhero movie released, it started off with a bang. The Marvel release took off well, grew over Saturday and Sunday and posted a massive opening weekend collection.
