Iron Man 3 reached a $12 million cumulative total in India, a comparable gross to the performance of domestic film Aashiqui 2. The latest entry in the Iron Man franchise has proved popular with Indian audiences despite not grossing the headline-grabbing numbers it has achieved in other global markets.
Go Goa Gone opened in 1135 screens this week with a $3.9 million gross to top the Indian box office among domestic films. Two sequels, Aashiqui 2 and Shootout at Wadala, placed in second and third place respectively. Aashiqui 2 held for a strong $2 million during its third week, reaching an $11.5 million cume. Shootout at Wadala grossed $1.9 million to take its total to $9.2 million.
