Avengers: Endgame to beat Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan's record of the BIGGEST opening day collection?

Avengers: Endgame tickets opened over the weekend. Given the madness that followed, the Marvel movie is touted to break all box office records in India, including the biggest opening day. Which means, Avengers: Endgame will surpass the collections of Thugs of Hindostan, Happy New Year and Baahubali 2.

You are a true blue Avengers: Endgame fan if you sat through the entire Sunday trying to book tickets for the Marvel movie. Bookings for the most-anticipated movie of 2019 opened in India over the weekend and vanished in a blink of an eye. Just like those Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War, fans saw Avengers: Endgame tickets disappear. While several mourned the lost chance to catch the Marvel Studios movie on the first day, trade analysts are stunned by the response to the pre-sales.

As Pinkvilla reported, Avengers: Endgame will be previewed on more than 2,000 screens across the country. The MCU movie will be releasing in several regional languages, apart from Hindi. And judging by the unavailability of tickets on ticketing platforms, it wouldn't be wrong to think that Avengers: Endgame would record the biggest opening day collection of all time in India. 

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and teased the possibility that Avengers: Endgame is going to shatter several records. "#AvengersEndgame advance booking is unheard of, unimaginable and unprecedented... Much, much better than several #Hindi biggies that opened in 2018 and 2019... Eyes a record-breaking, historic start in #India... Dear BO records, get ready to be smashed and shattered!" he tweeted.

Given the hype around the release and housefull shows across several cities, Avengers: Endgame could dethrone Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs of Hindostan to record the biggest opening day collection of all-time. The Yash Raj Films movie earned the biggest opening day collection when it released on Diwali in 2018. The film earned Rs 52.25 crores on its opening day.

Avengers: Endgame has been hyped by the Marvel Studios from the time it was announced. Russo Brothers left Avengers: Infinity War on a cliffhanger, making Avengers: Endgame a must-watch. Fans will try to avoid all spoilers to keep their movie experience intact and memorable thus choosing to watch it on day 1. 

If the movie comes close to beating Thugs of Hindostan, it will eventually beat Shah Rukh Khan's Happy New Year and SS Rajamouli's Baahubali. 

While fans wait to see if Avengers: Endgame breaks these records, the Marvel movie has already broken a Thugs of Hindostan record yesterday. Until last year, Thugs of Hindostan held the record for the costliest tickets sold in India. The tickets went up to Rs 1,500 last year, but Avengers: Endgame tickets cost up to Rs 2,200.
