The Lion King had a good opening day to collect 10.50-10.75 crore nett on day one. The film managed good growth in the evening to get into the 10 crore nett mark and this will mean a big jump in business today (Saturday). The morning collections were lower than Spiderman - Far From Home but the day came out a little ahead due to better collections in the evening.



The opening day collections in NETT terms are the sixth highest ever for a Hollywood release in India and all the films above The Lion King are big action films. The first day number is a very good one for this genre as the first day morning crowd is not going to come in numbers for this type of film..



It is the eighth film from Hollywood to hit double digits and also just collected a little better than The Jungle Book in terms of NETT collections though GROSS numbers will be less. The film will score very well over the weekend as family and kids come in numbers but the test will come on Monday. The top ten opening days in India for Hollywood releases till date are as follows.



1. Avengers - Endgame (2019) - 53,30,00,000



2. Avengers - Infinity War (2018) - 31,23,00,000
