The much-awaited 23rd James Bond movie "Skyfall" has grossed approximately Rs.27.5 crore ($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).
