Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson's "Captain Marvel" had a smooth take-off in India with the superhero film raking in Rs 48.47 crore at the box office in its opening weekend.

Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" introduces the Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) first standalone, female-franchise title character, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, essayed by Larson. It opened in India on Friday.
