Deadpool 2 box office collection Day 1: Ryan Reynolds’s film is off to a fantastic start

23

Mumbai,Less than a month ago, the Marvel Cinematic Universe left the audience gasping for breath, with Avengers: Infinity War. Now, it is back with yet another treat – Deadpool 2. Two years after the first installment released, Ryan Reynolds is back as the wisecracking mercenary, Deadpool aka Wade Wilson.
Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch, is off to a heroic start at the box office in India. According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, it is not just the English version, but the Hindi, Tamil and Telugu-dubbed versions that are finding favour with the audience. Deadpool 2, which released in 2000 screens across the country, has raked in around Rs 11.25 crore on its opening day. This makes it the fourth biggest opening film so far in India this year.
Incidentally, Ranveer Singh is the voice of Deadpool in the Hindi-dubbed version. Talking about why he lent his voice to the ‘Merc with a Mouth’, Ranveer told a leading daily, “I thought it would be fun to use foul Hindi language onscreen, to be honest. I just wanted to give gaalis onscreen. That’s the long and short of it.”
The story revolves around Deadpool forming the X-Force to protect a teenage mutant, Rusell, from Josh Brolin’s time-travelling mutant, Cable. Deadpool has received glowing reviews from critics, with many saying that the film outshines its prequel.
With virtually no competition from the two Bollywood releases this week – Khajoor Pe Atke and High Jack – Deadpool 2 is here to rule the box office. For now, at least.
