According to trade analysts, Endgame has the highest opening day numbers of 2019 and is the highest Hollywood opener so far. The film has even surpassed Thugs of Hindostan's (2018) collection. The Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan drama's Telugu, Hindi and Tamil versions had collectively minted Rs 52.25 crore on Day 1.


Endgame also beat Infinity War's numbers by over Rs 20 crore, noted trade analysts.

Created from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, is a follow-up to the events of Infinity War, which ended with Thanos obliterating half of all life in the universe with a snap of his finger.

Endgame also fell prey to piracy as a camera print of the film was leaked by Tamilrockers within a few hours of it's release. While the directors issued an open letter to fans urging them to not reveal spoilers.
