Daniel Craig's Spectre released in India on 20 November. The film has recorded the highest opening weekend for a Bond Film in India yet - by raking in Rs 23.50 crore in the first four days alone.
As expected, a majority of the film's collection have come in from multiplexes in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. Bond films have failed to make much of a mark with the Indian audience - a trend that is often reflected in the box office collections.
The last Bond outing, Skyfall, collected around Rs 22 crore in its opening weekend. Here is a look at the day-wise box office collections for Spectre:
Thursday: Rs 2.26 crore (paid preview)
Friday: Rs 6.14 crore
Saturday: Rs 7.28 crore
Sunday: Rs 7.82 crore
Total: Rs 23.30 crore
The film lags behind the weekend numbers of other Hollywood blockbusters like Fast and Furious 7 (Rs 50 crore), and Avengers - The Age of Ultron (Rs 36 crore).
The audience feedback for Spectre is mixed. It looks like Spectre may have to struggle to cross the lifetime collections of Skyfall ( Rs 44 crore) - which currently holds the record for the highest grossing Bond film of all time in India
The Sam Mendes film also stars Monica Bellucci, Christoph Waltz and Jesper Christensen.
