Deadpool 2 | Box Office: Rs 65 crore | One franchise which has been seeing good growth in India is 'Deadpool'. The first in the series collected around Rs 35 crore. However, the second instalment almost doubled its collections. The adult superhero action comedy is a bit niche in its appeal and is yet to gain a must-watch status. That is expected though when Deadpool 3 arrives. (Image: Twitter)
