The production of Marvel Studio’s Shang chi and the legend of four rings is off to a good start. In India, the film has collected Rs 3.25 crore on its first day.
While that would not have been a big number before, it is quite impressive in the current times when theatres aren’t open at full capacity in most parts of the country, and some haven’t even resumed function post the lockdown.
Taran Adarsh’s tweet read, “#Marvel brings cheer to the #Indian #BO, yet again… #ShangChiAndTheLegendOfTheTenRings – the new superhero film – takes a heroic start… Emerges the first choice of moviegoers in #India… Biz is expected to grow over the weekend… Fri ₹ 3.25 cr Nett. #India biz. All versions. #ShangChi.”
The China-born superhero Shang-Chi is the first Asian superhero in MCU. Also called the Master of Kung Fu, he was raised as a master of martial arts by his father (Wenwu, played by Tony Leung), who was the head of the terrorist organisation Ten Rings.
The movie, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and written by Dave Callaham and Andrew Lanham, has received a positive response from critics. It scored a rating of 92 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
