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.

According to a statement, the film earned Rs 15.49 crore (GBOC -- Gross box office collection) on day one, Rs 16.79 crore GBOC on day two and Rs 16.19 crore GBOC on day three, taking the total to Rs 48.47 crore.

Set in the 1990s, "Captain Marvel" follows Danvers' journey as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes. Based on the comic book series, first published in 1967, "Captain Marvel" is produced by Kevin Feige and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. It also stars Samuel L.
