Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel has left Amitabh Bachchan’s Badla behind at the box office, making Rs 27 crore in two days.
Marvel’s latest offering, Captain Marvel is performing quite well at the Indian box office. The superhero movie, starring Brie Larson in the lead role, collected Rs 27 crore in two days. The film released with Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu’s Badla, which earned only Rs 13 crore in two days, The Hindustan Times reports.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures on Sunday. “#CaptainMarvel witnesses limited growth on Day 2, but the 2-day total is excellent… #English version outperforms… Targets Rs 40 cr+ total in its opening weekend… Fri 13.01 cr, Sat 14.10 cr.

He also shared Badla’s figures. “#Badla records superb growth on Day 2… Metros/multiplexes are rocking… Day 3 [Sun] will score higher numbers… Eyes Rs 23 cr [+/-] opening weekend On course to be a HIT… Fri 5.04 cr, Sat 8.55 cr.

Badla has performed better than Big B’s earlier releases Pink (2016) and 102 Not Out (2018). While Pink had collected Rs 4.32 crore on its opening day, 102 Not Out had minted Rs 3.52 crore on its opening day. Badla revolves around a murder mystery, in which Taapsee’s character becomes the primary suspect after she is found with her boyfriend’s dead body and money in a locked room. Amitabh plays a successful lawyer, who has to defend and save her by solving the mystery. Reportedly, the Sujoy Ghosh directorial is a remake of 2016 Spanish film The Invisible Guest, which was directed by Oriol Paulo.
Captain Marvel is the 21st instalment in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. Not only that, it is also the first female-led superhero film in the franchise. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel is set in 1995 and centres on Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, who joins an elite military team known as Starforce after becoming Captain Marvel. The film’s cast includes Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan, and Annette Bening.
