Tom Cruise film opens to $51 million in US, collects ₹4.75 crore in India

Director Joseph Kosinski's Top Gun Maverick,

which features Tom Cruise, had a contrasting opening at the box office in India and the US.

In the US, the film collected $51 million on its opening day.

The film is already Tom’s best opening day ever beating Mission

Impossible – Fallout's first-day collection.

However, the film has not been able to make a mark in India and collected ₹4.75 crore on day one.

In Top Gun Maverick, Tom essays the role of Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell,

who is grappling with the diminished standing of fighter pilots in a world

that now wages war with drones controlled by people miles away on computers.
