New Delhi: The much-awaited film ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ has created history with its phenomenal Box Office collection in India on the first day itself. The film which was released on 3264 screens and counting, has minted a whopping Rs 32.67 crore which is 3.5 times more than its 2019 predecessor ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’.
Not just that but its Day 1 collections are higher than any other film English or Hindi released in 2021. So, if it became the highest-grossing film of the year, it wouldn’t be surprising.
