Acclaimed director James Cameron’s much-anticipated 3D sci-fi epic “Avatar” spelt magic at the box office in the big cities as well as smaller towns by grossing about Rs.6.75 crore (Rs.67.5 million) on its opening day.
Touted as the biggest ever Friday opening for any Hollywood film in India so far, the movie was released in 2D- and 3D-formats in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
“Even theatres in the interiors (of the country), where the film is being shown in Hindi in 2D format, have been doing fantastic business,” Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios India, said in a statement.
