Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, from Marvel Studios, is one of the most anticipated films of 2022. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness made Rs 30 crore on its first day of release in India, according to box office India. The picture had a spectacular 55-60% opening weekend. Will it be a bigger hit than Spider-Man: Homecoming? According to the source, the Benedict-starrer may struggle to match Spiderman's performance because the latter is a more well-known superhero.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#DoctorStrange is MARVEL-ous on Day 1… 4TH BIGGEST HOLLYWOOD OPENER in #India… *Day 1* biz…
⭐  #AvengersEndgame: ₹ 53.10 cr

The total is a touch less than what Spider-Man: No Way Home, made last year. That film had a box office debut of Rs 32.67 crore, however, it was restricted by COVID-19. After Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Avengers: Infinity War, the film's opening is the fourth greatest among Hollywood films.
