this weekend, it’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantummania Which led the show at the box office. The film opened to a good opening on Friday with Rs. 8.25 crore* and though the jump on Saturday and Sunday was not huge, the fact remains that the viewership remained consistent and ensured that the overall weekend total was pretty decent.
