This is an amazing thing for Hollywood film to break Bollywood film's record on its opening day. Earlier, Siddharth Bhardwaj, Chief Marketing Officer, UFO Moviez speculated about Avengers: Endgame, "Marvel has worked really hard to build each of its superhero franchise fan base, #endgame is dawning audiences of all these individual superhero’s. The digitally connected world helps content creators to activate fans in deepest corners of the world and @avengers has managed to do this very well, the record-breaking BO numbers are expected not only from top cities but huge occupancies are being reported at tier I and tier II towns also. Let’s not forget it’s IPL, election time and after Kesari and Kalank avengers endgame is one more proof of the fact that compulsive cinema content can outshine any other event that happens in any country."
