After waiting for more than a week since their warm-up match against Bangladesh, the Indian cricket team finally made their ICC World Cup 2019 debut against Faf du Plessis' South African team and played a wonderful game of ODI cricket in chasing a minimal yet tricky mark of 228.
Four wickets by @yuzi_chahal and a devastating opening spell by @Jaspritbumrah93 saw #TeamIndia limit South Africa to 227 runs.

While a huge chunk of the credit for the victory goes to Yuzvendra Chahal for his 4-wicket-haul and Jasprit Bumrah's highly effective and economical bowling (economy of 3.5 runs), there was one man who stood between the Proteas and their first win of the Cricket World Cup 2019 like a brick wall, Rohit Sharma.
But it was #TeamIndia's day, their successful chase led by a superb ð¯ to @imro45 which included 13 boundaries and a pair of sixes.

There are multiple evidences for this theory that we have seen during the various seasons of the Indian Premier League in which the Mumbai Indians' owner, Nita Ambani, is caught reading a mantra, which immediately makes things go in the MIPaltan's direction. Believe us, we even spoke to her Pandit ji.

For someone who began his career as a middle-order batsman, Rohit Sharma has come into his own ever since MS Dhoni and the Indian team management identified him as a threatening opening batsman. Over the years, batting at the top, Rohit has not only turned his career around, but also provided India the luxury of an indispensable opener.
A vital cog in the Indian batting line-up, Rohit came into the ICC World Cup with a lot of expectations on his shoulders. With his team tipped as one of the top contenders this year, the right-hander was quite understandably bestowed with the responsibility of getting them to a good start. And, on 5th June, Rohit, once again, proved why he is rated so highly by the Indian team management and all the cricket experts across the globe.
Beginning their campaign against a team of South Africa's calibre was never going to be easy, but a spectacular show by the Indian bowling unit did tilt the game in favour of the 'Men in Blue'. Impressive figures by Yuzvendra Chahal (4-51) and Jasprit Bumrah (2-35) ensured that the Proteas were restricted to a mediocre total of 227 runs at the loss of nine wickets.
Though the target appeared mediocre, but if anyone saw the conditions and pitch behave in the first-half of the match, they'd agree that it was going to take some doing for India to register their first points in the tournament. And, that's exactly what happened.
Against the searing pace and impeccable lengths of sprinting Kagiso Rabada, the Indian openers looked far from being comfortable with both Shikhar Dhawan (8) and Rohit struggling early on. After the game of cat and mouse, pressure got to Dhawan as he edged one off Rabada through to Quinton de Kock behind the stumps.
With the Proteas quicks smelling blood, the Indian side needed their batsmen at the crease to oversee the troublesome times and apply themselves in a bid to stitch a partnership - something Rohit and Virat Kohli (18) tried to do following Dhawan's dismissal. The duo added 41 runs for the second wicket and were eager to stabilise India's run-chase when Andile Phehlukwayo struck to send Kohli packing - courtesy a spectacular catch by De Kock.
With his captain back in the hut, Rohit put his best foot forward and decided to carry the baton for his side. The Mumbai batsman gave himself enough time at the crease to settle in and, unlike his teammates, he didn't force his shots against the odd ball. On the other hand, Rohit was also impressive in rotating the strike which allowed him, and in turn India, to stitch strong partnerships.
After partnering Kohli, Rohit was involved in an 85-run partnership for the third wicket with KL Rahul (26) who looked good for the better part of his innings in the much-debated No. 4 slot. But, Rahul's dismissal in the 32nd over at the hands of Rabada once again got India in a spot of bother.
Top century from Rohit Sharma. Composed, relaxed. Rode the early tension well and has been a picture of certainty since
— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 5, 2019
Unnerved by the pressure, Rohit continued to steer the chase for India after finding some support from MS Dhoni (34). The two experienced batsmen added 74 runs for the fourth wicket and almost nullified the threat Rabada & co. posed in the middle. As the game neared its end, India lost Dhoni, but Rohit's presence in the middle ensured the team remained on track.
While the winning runs came from the blade of swashbuckling Hardik Pandya (15*), it was arguably Rohit's superlative knock of 122 runs including 10 fours and two sixes that made the difference.
Calm ,composed and a wonderful century from @ImRo45 ! Fantastic understanding of the situation !
— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 5, 2019
On a track where batsmen from both sides struggled to get going, Rohit showed great composure and temperament in his match-winning innings. Curbing his natural, aggressive game, Rohit adapted to the conditions and sacrificed certain shots from his armoury to ensure his survival at the crease. Owing to experience and know-how of the game, the Indian opener got his team over the line and notched up his second World Cup hundred and get India off to a winning start in the tournament.
A wonderful, mature innings from Rohit Sharma. Great assessment of the situation and seeing India through to the win in the end, a hallmark of top players @ImRo45 . A well begun World Cup campaign for Team India #INDvSA pic.twitter.com/Hmul57c4BO
— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) June 5, 2019
It was also Rohit's 23rd ODI hundred which allowed him to go past Sourav Ganguly (22) in the list of India's all-time top hundred makers in the 50-over format. He is now placed third in the elite list with just Sachin Tendulkar (49) and Kohli (41) ahead of him.
Following their emphatic six-wicket triumph, the Kohli brigade will hope that Rohit continues his fine run when they take the field against Australia in the much-anticipated clash at The Oval on 9th June.
Going into the tournament, fans and experts had identified a handful of players who would go to play a crucial role in Team India's campaign at the ICC World Cup. The first and most obvious candidate is of course captain Virat Kohli whose batting prowess and leadership skills are expected to get his team all the way.
Amongst other probables who were expected to make a mark, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal were also looked upon as key players for India. While everyone expected Bumrah to do the damage with his searing pace and precision in line and lengths early on, Chahal was bestowed with the responsibility of doing the damage with his cunning variations in the middle order - a script that dictated South Africa's fate in their clash in Southampaton on 5th June.
Winning the toss and deciding to bat, the Proteas were, to an extent, conned into believing that the conditions were suited for batting and posting a formidable total upfront. But, popular to contrary perception, the South African batting unit was picked apart by a spectacular show from Bumrah and Chahal.
It all began in the fourth over, when Bumrah's tight angle got Hashim Amla (6) stuck into a stop-shot, eventually forcing an outside edge that went straight into the hands of Rohit Sharma at second slip. In his next over, Bumrah's cunning plan - with adequate support from Kohli - led to the dismissal of Quinton de Kock (10).
With their side reeling at 24/2, South Africa needed a strong partnership which eventually came through the efforts of and Faf du Plessis (38) and Rassie van der Dussen (22). With the two Proteas batsmen rebuilding their innings by adding 54 runs for the third wicket, India needed to counter the potential threat. And, that's when Chahal's spin wizardry came to the fore.
In what arguably turned out to be one of the deliveries of the tournament, Chahal's drift and rip on the ball turned Van der Dussen into a laughing stock after his reverse-sweep led to a dismissal. It was undeniably a vital breakthrough, but Chahal wasn't done yet. In fact, the Indian leg-spinner had another gem of a delivery up his sleeves for opposition captain Du Plessis who was outfoxed in a classic spinner's dismissal.

At the other end, his spin-bowling partner Kuldeep Yadav, too, joined the party and dismissed JP Duminy (3) in the 23rd over after wrapping him in front of the stumps. Though Duminy went for the review, but even the DRS couldn't save him following his poor shot-selection.
Despite two wickets in his kitty, Chahal's breakthrough act continued as he once again helped his side in breaking the partnership. David Miller (31) and Andile Phehlukwayo (34) had added 46 runs for the sixth wicket when Chahal removed the former in a simple caught and bowled dismissal in the 36th over.
Few overs later, Chahal struck again to send Phehlukwayo back into the hut after foxing him in the length to allow MS Dhoni to complete a regulation stumping. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, too, got his name under the wickets column after claiming the scalps of Chris Morris (42) and Imran Tahir (0) in the final over as the Proteas crumbled to 227/9 in 50 overs.
While every Indian bowler contributed in their own way, it was undoubtedly Bumrah and Chahal whose impressive figures of 2-35 and 4-51 respectively earned them plaudits from fans and pundits alike.
Fantastic effort by the bowlers to restrict South Africa to 227. Bumrah began exceptionally and the wrist spinners capitalised, Chahal was superb in his 10 overs and I back India to chase down this total. #INDvSA

After patiently waiting for seven days in the tournament, the Indian cricket team finally started their campaign at the ICC World Cup against South Africa in Southampton on 5th June. While the Indian fans were forced to wait to see their team in action, the late start for 'Men in Blue' at the ICC spectacle also meant that they had enough time to prepare - something that was in full display at the Rose Bowl stadium.
Losing the toss, the Indian team found themselves bowling against the South African batting line-up, focussed on piling up a big score in a bid to record their first win in three games. But, it wasn't meant to be - thanks to a spectacular bowling performance by India.
With Jasprit Bumrah getting his angles and seam movement to trouble the South African openers early on, everyone knew that a wicket was around the corner. While many suspected Quinton de Kock to became the first victim, it was Hashim Amla who eventually turned out to be the first scalp for Bumrah.
In the fourth over, Bumrah's good length delivery, pitched just outside off, forced Amla to defend from the crease - a mistake that was eventually going to cost South Africa their first wicket. Deploying his defensive push, Amla couldn't help but edge the ball through towards the second slip where anxious Rohit Sharma got down just in time to grab it cleanly.
It was a beautifully set-up dismissal where the bowler's line and length combined perfectly with the field setting, deployed in anticipation of the opposition batsman's shot. If Bumrah's early breakthrough got the Indian fans on the edge of their seats, Rohit's unique celebration after taking the catch doubled the fun on social media.

We're going to talk about an age old dating trend which has found a new name and is incessant in its occurrence and let's face it, can be quite lethal. We're talking about 'Love Bombing' and it's the worst manipulative move in today's dating game. No, love bombing isn't bombarding someone with love. Well, not entirely. It's a lot more than that.
Love bombing is an emotionally abusive situation in a relationship where the victim goes through manipulative withdrawal after being showered with love and affection. The victims are usually people who have gone through emotionally strung out, abusive relationships in the past and haven't worked on changing their particular pattern; hence they get manipulated easily into another damaging relationship, because they haven't worked on their past issues.
Such people attract relationships with narcissistic folks, making them vulnerable to the concept of love bombing.
It's basically a weapon disguised as affection and you may get a lot of it from the person who is love bombing you, but her ultimate motive is to manipulate you in to believing it's all real.
So, in order to avoid being love-bombed, especially when you've just come out of a serious relationship, here's what you can do:
(1) Take Things Very Slow
One major fact about love bombers are they will get under your skin and your psyche way too quickly. They will give their all, in little time and suddenly it'll feel like this fits perfectly well. Because love is blind, quite literally and before you know it, after a boatload of love and affection they will show you a side you were never privy to before. While giving you the attention that you always craved for, they also shower you with gifts, which in most cases is a transactional process for them. All these moves are quite calculative and well thought out, before they start withdrawing and showing you their true colours (mostly their abusive and controlling side) before the romance starts to fizzle out.
So, in order to avoid that situation, take it slow at first and make sure you know the person fairly well, before you're drawn or lured in to their trap. Love bombers are impatient people. They want everything to go rather quickly so you have to take your own time to figure what you need to and in case they bail, because you were taking your time, they were worth it to begin with.
(2) Don't Delve Into Future-Talks
Love bombers love talking about the future, in little to no time. You may feel you have found the right person who is giving you everything you've ever desired including making future plans with you. From wedding plans to how many kids you both want to have, everything will be laid straight out like the best made plans. But there's a catch. Future talks with a love bomber are sure shot signs of red flag. It's tricky because love bombers trick you into believing they are an important part of your life and indispensable to your future happiness.
Make sure you don't indulge in any future plans with them, until you're sure and significant time has gone by and you've figured out their true intention. Otherwise they will leave you with a million dreams for the future and disappear.
(3) If They Start To Seem Difficult, Leave
A few traits you can't miss when you're with a narcissistic love bomber is that they will play on your insecurities, their unreasonable demands and expectations will increase, things will obviously start to fizzle out and the relationship will feel like a constant emotional-merry-go-round. These are the signs you need to watch out for, when things start getting a little too aggressive and abrupt and leave. Save yourself some hurt and recognise these patterns. You will know how they treat you, which will be very different from how anyone in a 'normal' relationship would.
Most times it's a human tendency to feel good about oneself and attract people who make people feel good about themselves. Sometimes people go through heavily abusive relationships and make it a pattern to attract people who will behave the same way the others have in the past, with them. The solution is to break the pattern and introspect as to why you let certain people into your life.
Love bombing is one of the most toxic forms of abuse and if you realise the traces early on, you can definitely break away and live without the unnecessary toxicity. Or just pay attention to the pointers mentioned above and be at guard with love bombers who may come your way.
Salman Khan's much awaited Eid mega-release 'Bharat' is here, and as expected, everyone attended the premiere. As impressed as we were with most outfits, one particular outfit made us take a closer look. We are talking about the debonair stylemaster Jackie Shroff, who even at 62, doesn't hesitate to experiment with unusual elements.1
(c) Viral Bhayani
The first thing we noticed about Jaggu Dada's outfit of course is the fact that it looked very similar to what Salman Khan himself wore - an all black ensemble (sort of, with very dark jeans that had about a dozen of zippers).
(c) Viral Bhayani
As dapper as both of them looked in their cowboy-ish retro fare, Mr Shroff stood out because of a very strange accessory. He wore as a brooch, what looked like a carrot (or is it a turnip?) Well it's not an 'actual' vegetable, but a rather convincing specimen. What is it doing on his chest? What does it mean? Does it have a secret message? Is it a symbol for something? We have so many questions!
(c) Viral Bhayani
(c) Viral Bhayani
We'll just make peace with the assumption that he's just using it as an unusual accessory. Now, we are all for unusual accessories, but this is one piece that stands out simply because how playfully weird it is, and even though it seemingly doesn't belong right there with the outfit, Jackie Shroff is making it work effortlessly. Talk about outstyling Bhai, that too on Eid.
Bharat Movie Cast: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Sonali Kulkarni, Disha Patani, Satish Kaushik
Bharat Movie Director: Ali Abbas Zafar
Bharat Movie Rating: 4/5
Salman Khan and Eid go hand in hand. Ever wondered why Salman's fans celebrate his every movie like a big festival? Well, you might not find any probable answer to this, but it's a given that his followers treat his movies like the most-awaited event of the season, and with good reason too.
This time, the audience has been served with a mixed bowl of emotions and actions on their platter with 'Bharat' and when you have Ali Abbas Zafar as a director, you know the movie has a lot to offer.
'Bharat' will make you laugh, cry and even feel patriotic at the same time. The basic root of the film is the tragic story of those who lost their loved ones when a bunch of 'corrupt politicians' decided to cut through 'Bharat' and make it India and Pakistan.
If you are thinking of investing your money and time into 'Bharat', then you can probably go ahead, because it won't disappoint you at all.
There is a chance you could feel a sense of deja vu, as you might get a rush of memories from Salman's 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' days, as there is a similar element of emotion and patriotism.
In all honesty, 'Bharat' is the perfect Eidi after the disastrous sob-fest that was 'Race 3' (no offence to the makers, clearly).
'Bharat' is an official adaptation of a South Korean drama 'Ode to my Father' (2014).
The movie shows Salman in five avatars, dating from 1947 to 2010. So, the young Bharat is separated from his father and sister during the Indo-Pak partition in 1947, after which he dedicates his entire life to the one promise that he made to his father (played by Jackie Shroff), that he will always take care of his family.
Of course, goes without saying that 'Bharat' is an absolute treat for those who have been dying to see Katrina Kaif and Salman on the big screen together again. The chemistry between the two is simply brilliant, and their cute banter throughout the movie will make you question if they are equally close off-screen as well.
Katrina, in terms of acting, has surely come a long way. Those who have seen 'Zero' would agree with my statement. Katrina, in 'Bharat', is free-spirited and bold and people are bound to love this avatar of hers.
If you're wondering about Salman's performance, then you probably should see the film for yourself, because if I tell you, I reckon I would be stealing your joy of watching Bhai in all his glory.
The cherry on the cake has to be Sunil Grover, and in every sense, he finally has his perfect big Bollywood movie. Ali has made sure that Sunil's character doesn't fade or lose focus before Salman's presence.
Disha Patani makes a brief period appearance but still manages to impress you with her killer looks and moves.
Every character in the movie is justified and why not? It's an Ali Abbas Zafar movie after all.
Yes, the movie is lengthy and just before the interval, you might feel that it is a bit stretched, but don't worry, 'Bharat' picks up the pace rather soon again.
The movie is not limited to just the love story between Bharat and Kumud (Katrina Kaif). It recounts significant historic instances of our nation, like the 1947 partition, Jawaharlal Nehru's death, the 1983 Cricket World Cup, liberalization, and yes, even globalization.
The score of the movie has done a brilliant job in keeping up with changing eras and gives the audience the perfect feel of a rapidly progressing nation.
Just like any movie, 'Bharat' is also not perfect and has its own decent share of flaws. However, it does not leave you disappointed or feeling unsatisfied.
So, book your tickets and watch this Salman movie. Try not to overanalyze everything you see and you are bound to come out of the hall feeling sated!
If there's anything that Bollywood is known for, apart from acting, controversies and gym pictures, it's the larger-than-life weddings of our beloved celebrities.
'Sonam Ki Shadi' (Sonam-Anand), 'Nickyanka' or 'Prick' (Nick-Priyanka) wedding, 'DeepVeer ki Shadi' (Deepika-Ranveer) or Virushka (Virat-Anushka) wedding; are a few prominent examples we've seen recently.
From their glittering wedding ceremonies and honeymoon destinations, their wedding date, designer outfits to even their wedding cakes; their fans want to know every little detail and the celebrities happily oblige by sharing them.
However, there are some celebrities who chose to go low-key and got secretly married to their respective partners, away from media glare and glamour:
1. Neha Dhupia - Angad Bedi
When everyone was busy talking about Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja's wedding, Neha Dhupia secretly got married to her best friend and actor Angad Bedi. The couple got married according to Sikh traditions at a gurudwara in New Delhi. People found out only after she posted pictures from her wedding on social media.
2. Himesh Reshammiya - Sonia Kapoor
Taking the legacy of secret weddings ahead, singer Himesh Reshammiya got married to his long-time girlfriend Sonia Kapoor. Reshammiya shared the news and the first images from the wedding, with his fans on Instagram, with the caption “Togetherness is bliss!”
Reportedly the wedding took place at his home, in a traditional Hindu ceremony and was attended by his friends and family.
3. Rochelle Rao - Keith Sequeira
'Bigg Boss 9' sweethearts Rochelle and Keith, surprised their fans when they secretly got married in a hush-hush beach-style wedding in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu. Keith and Rochelle are proof that emotions, feelings and love can never be scripted, even if it's a reality show.
4. Ishita Dutta - Vatsal Seth
The moment Ishita and Vatsal's wedding pictures started surfacing, most of their fans thought they are shooting for a new TV show. Honestly, if you too thought the same, trust me you're not alone. The couple got married at ISKON Temple in Juhu, Mumbai. While Vatsal is best known as Ajay Devgn's son in 'Tarzan', Ishita, who is Tanushree Dutta's younger sister, made her Bollywood debut with 'Drishyam'.
5. Lisa Haydon - Dino Lalwani
Lisa Haydon broke millions of hearts when she secretly got married to her boyfriend Dino Lalvani. They got married in 2016 in a beach-style wedding, that was attended only by close family and friends.
Salman Khan's 'Bharat' is nearing its release and fans are waiting with bated breath to see their favourite Khan on the big screen. The movie has been a part of controversies ever since its inception. Just a few days before the release, Salman Khan's 'Bharat' has landed into legal trouble. Well, a petition has been filed seeking the change in the title of the movie at the Delhi High Court. The petition was filed by Vipin Tyagi. As per reports, the film is against Section 3 of the Emblems and Names Act which prohibits the use of word 'Bharat' for any commercial use.
He has also asked for a change in one particular dialogue where the character has been compared to the country and he feels it's somewhere hurting the sentiments of the citizens. We wonder what Salman or Ali Abbas Zafar has to say to this. For the uninitiated, 'Bharat' is an adaptation of the Korean film 'An Ode To My Father'. It traces the journey of a man and a nation together. It will release on June 5.
Watch the trailer here:
Salman's 'Bharat' was also making news when Priyanka Chopra walked out of the movie. Since then, Salman is always seen taking a potshot at PeeCee for the same. At a press conference, Salman Khan said, "She, over Bharat, did choose the USA in the 'nick' of time. She has worked so hard all her life, okay? And when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped that film and got married. You know, hats off! Usually, people leave their husbands for a film like this."
Are you excited to see the movie? Let us know in the comments below.

Recently, Durex India dropped the biggest truth bomb on us, and we haven't recovered from it just yet. The brand revealed how 70% of women in India do not orgasm every time they have sex. This piece of news by Durex India has had the internet in a frenzy. And why shouldn't it?
Like it or not, orgasm inequality does exist, and it's rampant amongst Indian women. What does this mean? In simpler words, it basically means percentage of women attaining orgasm is way lower than men.
View this post on Instagram
They say numbers tell a story, and these numbers tell a story that must change. @durex.india statistics suggest that 70% women do not orgasm everytime they have sex. This orgasm inequality has to go! We need to talk about it and for real this time. #OrgasmInequality

Being hardworking as a guy doesn't mean much if you don't do it where it matters.

Communication on sexual needs is easier said than done. Since most couples don't communicate openly, it leads to a vicious cycle of misunderstandings. She feels her man isn't really putting any effort to please her. So, what happens in this situation? She 'fakes' orgasm, and he doesn't even understand it.
And we are not the only ones who are saying this. Bollywood actor Pooja Bedi, too, agrees that there is a huge orgasm inequality in India that leads to fake orgasms in women.
If you're faking it, you're not loving it! Share your #FakeOrgasm stories and queries with me as I go live from @durexindia page on 1st June at 1 pm. I'll be answering all your questions on #FakeOrgasm. Do tune in! pic.twitter.com/J42izLRLhq

No matter how fancy, lavish or elaborate your lunch plans are, they can never come close to that lucky person who will get a chance to grab a 'billion dollar' lunch with the 'Oracle Of Omaha' aka Warren Buffett.
Imagine how surreal that experience will be, where you are sharing a table with none other than Warren Buffett, world's third-richest person whose net worth is $83.2 billion.
Will the wine be more expensive than the one a restaurant served accidentally to a customer, or will the steak be covered with gold leaf sheets? Will they use gold crockery or table mats made from currency notes? I know it sounds bizarre, but I don't know what having lunch with a billionaire feels like. But, you can...only if you participate in the auction and win it.
Warren Buffett's annual 'power lunch' event is back (now in its 20th year) and the bidding has reportedly begun for the same. Buffett is auctioning the lunch to raise money for the Glide Foundation, which aims to fight against poverty in San Francisco.
According to reports, the winner (who can invite up to seven friends) will share the meal at New York's Smith & Wollensky steakhouse, which is said to be one of the most expensive places to eat.
So far, Buffett has raised close to $30 million for Glide, but it doesn't look like he's going to stop anytime soon. But, it won't be easy to grab lunch with the world's third richest person. In 2012, an anonymous bidder raised close to $3.46 million, so to win your chance, you will have to top that amount.
The bidding started on Sunday at $25,000 (Rs. 17.4 lakh approx.) and will end on Friday, May 31st.
While we'll get to know about the lucky winner by Friday, we wonder whether it will be a buffet or à la carte.
'Avengers: Endgame' was honestly the most-anticipated movie of all time, especially since the cliff-hanger ending of 'Avengers: Infinity War'.
For the entire year between the two movies, fans were just predicting, coming up with theories about what could happen and a lot of them actually turned out to be true. (I just wanted the Ant-Man going up Thanos' butt one to be real, but whatever.)
So, it's not surprising that ever since April 26th, the biggest MCU movie has been breaking all records left, right, and centre. From quickly climbing up in the list of the highest-earning movies, to becoming the highest opening movie in India, 'Endgame' has broken records all over the globe.
The movie completed one month yesterday, so here's looking back at all the great records it has already made and made Marvel Studios over $2.5 billion richer:
1. Biggest Global Opening Weekend
With a $1.2 billion worldwide box office opening, 'Endgame' beat the record previously held by 'Infinity War'.
2. Highest Grossing Opening Day In India
Beating out all the Hindi movies, 'Endgame' earned over Rs 53 crore on the first day itself and set a record. I think we all can vouch for this one just because of how much of a struggle it was to get first day tickets.
3. Highest Grossing Hollywood Movie In India
Again, no surprises here. The movie has earned over Rs 350 crore till now.
4. Fastest Movie To Hit 1.2 Billion USD
It took five days, just five days, for the movie to reach one freaking billion dollars. I can't even imagine how much money that actually is.
5. Fastest To Reach All The Main Check Points
An extension of the previous point, it's also the quickest movie to reach all the checkpoints - $500 million, $1 billion, $1.5 billion, $2 billion, and $2.5 billion. It took 'Avatar' 72 days to reach $2.5 billion, 'Endgame' did it in 20 days.
6. Second Highest Grossing Movie Of All Time
Yes, it hasn't quite beaten 'Avatar' yet, but it still did manage to do so with all the other movies on the list to take up the second spot for now. We all know 'Endgame' is coming for 'Avatar' soon.
