Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s spectacle ‘Padmaavat’ has been the most awaited film since last year making it the most special film of the first quarter of 2018. The film stars superstars of the current gen, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor as the main cast. And the film is proving to be the first Blockbuster of the year by crossing over 50 crores in a matter of 3 days despite the hesitation from Karni Sena and non-screening in a few states.
With a mixed response from the critics and immense love from fans, the theaters are going houseful in metro cities, specially multiplexes. Here’s the collection break down that proves how the audience is appreciating Ranveer Singh’s performance as Alauddin Khilji, Deepika Padukone’s beauty and the stunning visuals by Sanjay Leela Bhansali through a jaw dropping collection:
The film has managed to earn Rs 32 crore on Friday bringing the total collection of the film to Rs 56 crore in just three days. (Thursday, January 25 – 19 Crore and Wednesday, January 24 (Paid Previews) – 5 Crore).
Film critic and box office analyst Taran Adarsh gave a breakdown of the 2 days + paid previews collections as follows:
#Padmaavat has a HUMONGOUS Day 2… Had it been a smooth release [some states are not screening the film], the all-India biz would’ve touched ₹ 40 cr… Wed 5 cr, Thu 19 cr, Fri 32 cr. Total: ₹ 56 cr. India biz… SUPERB!
