Captain Marvel released along with Sujoy Ghosh's Badla, and is also competing with Indra Kumar's action-adventure potboiler Total Dhamaal and Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon-starrer Luka Chuppi,which are in their third and second week respectively.
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel follows the story of Larson's character Carol Danvers as she navigates a monumental war between two alien races which transcends galaxies. The film's cast includes Samuel L Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have directed the feature.
It was recently reported that the online piracy website Tamil Rockers had leaked the film just a day after its release in the country. According to IBTimes, Captain Marvel's earnings in India may get affected as potential audience may choose to illegally download it, rather than visit a theatre.
