Currently, Hollywood biggie Avengers: Endgame is ruling the Indian box office and has already crossed the Rs 300 crore mark. Last week, two more films arrived in theatres, Sunny Deol and Karan Kapadia starrer Blank and Setters featuring Aftab Shivdasani and Shreyas Talpade. And despite all of this, Vivek Agnihotri's directorial venture The Tashkent Files is holding up well at the ticket windows. Though the film garnered not so great reviews and opened to low occupancy on the first day, the political thriller has still managed to do decent business at the domestic box office. In fact, the collections have only gotten better with each passing day.
