Fast and Furious spin-off Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw had a lucrative opening weekend in India. The Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham starrer has earned Rs 42.90 crore in three days. It opened its account with Rs 13.15 crore.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#FastAndFurious: #HobbsAndShaw – a popular franchise in #India – packs a solid total… Witnesses good growth on Day 3… Will be interesting to see how it performs on weekdays… Fri 13.15 cr, Sat 13.75 cr, Sun 16 cr. Total: ₹ 42.90 cr Nett BOC. India biz. All versions.”

In Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Statham’s Deckard Shaw team up to stop a cybernetically-enhanced terrorist Brixton Lore, played by Idris Elba. The movie also stars Vanessa Kirby and Helen Mirren.

On the other hand, Indian films such as Super 30 are continuing with its super business at the box office with collections staying on to be good. As has been the trend with the Hrithik Roshan-starrer ever since its release, the jumps over the weekend have been quite impressive. Especially on Saturdays, the film has had the tendency to grow very well as family audiences come out in hordes.

This is what happened over the weekend gone by as well, and that has pushed the collections to around Rs 137 crore. In the process, it has gone past the lifetime numbers of several other successful films like Toilet – Ek Prem Katha [Rs 134.25 crore], M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story [Rs 133.50 crore], Rowdy Rathore [Rs 133 crore], Stree [Rs 130 crore], Airlift [ Rs 129 crores], Rustom [Rs 128 crore] and Raazi [Rs 124 crore].

The film is based on the life of Patna-based mathematician and educationist, Anand Kumar. Kumar is the founder of the Super 30 programme, under which deserving students from economically-weaker sections of the society are prepared for the IIT-JEE exam for absolutely no cost. Hundreds of students from across the country have made it to the IITs under Kumar’s guidance.
