Elaborating on the same, Ajit Andhare – COO, Viacom18 Motion Pictures said, “The success of Mission Impossible 5 is the result of the combination of its inherent draw and a consistent building of this franchise in India by Viacom18 Motion Pictures over the last few years. In the previous edition of the film, Tom’s presence in India bolstered our drive to build anticipation of MI 4. Building on from there, this year with MI5 we have secured a phenomenal opening weekend even while the film in released strictly in DCI compliant cinemas.”
