Even though Avatar The Way of Water won't be in theatres for another nine days, the movie is already smashing box office records.
According to sources, the James Cameron movie reached the 10-crore milestone in nett bookings on Monday night, ten days before it opened in theatres.
Breaking the previous record set by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness earlier this year, this is a new record for any movie in India.
The follow-up to the 2009 smash hit Avatar, which is still the most successful movie ever made worldwide, is Avatar The Way of Water.
The James Cameron-directed movie is the second instalment in a planned five-film series.
On December 16, it will be available everywhere. Due to the intense buzz surrounding the movie, advance booking began last week in India.
BoxOfficeIndia.com reported that, ten days before its release, the movie had already surpassed 10 crore, the fastest advance in Indian cinema history.
Nine days prior to release, the movie Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness reportedly reached the 10-crore nett milestone.
The 10 billion rupee figure for Avatar 2 includes all days for which booking is currently available.
