The much-awaited 23rd James Bond movie 'Skyfall' has grossed approximately Rs.27.5 crore (USD 5.1 million) in four days, making it the second biggest opening weekend ever for a Hollywood film in India.

The opening collections of Daniel Craig starrer 'Skyfall' are said to be best so for a Bond film in India. ''Skyfall' has not only continued India's fascination with the James Bond franchise, but also expanded it...," Kercy Daruwala, managing director, Sony Pictures India, said in a statement.

"Extremely positive reviews and word-of-mouth will ensure that the film has a long and successful run at the box office and will garner repeat viewings as well," Daruwala added.

Sony Pictures India released 'Skyfall' Nov 1 with 907 prints. It hit the Indian screens in four languages - English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The opening collection of the film has exceeded the earnings of Craig's last two Bond movies - 'Casino Royale' (2006) and 'Quantum of Solace' (2008).
