Marvel Studios’ Big Diwali Entertainer Eternals have been welcomed by audiences across India and has by far a decent collection at the box office.

The film has had a decent opening on Day 1 after it was released in the theatres.  Eternals has managed to mint a total of  Rs. 8.75 cr GBOC and 7.35 cr NBOC, in terms of Day 1 figures at the box office.

Despite huge local Hindi and South competition, the film’s first-day opening is a testament to the huge fan following and craze for Marvel films in India. In comparison to other Marvel releases like films-  Shang Chi and the Legend of Ten Ring, Eternals has managed to do well with a decent opening on Diwali weekend.
