The magnum opus, Padmaavat is set to smash all records in India and abroad. The film has been banned by four Indian states and it has not released anywhere in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Goa. Despite the prohibition the film is doing extremely well and running to full houses wherever it has released. According to the producers, more than one million people have watched the film on the first day itself.
The film, which started its box office journey by registering a striking collection of Rs 19 crore on its opening day, has already managed to cross the Rs 50 mark in just three days. The film is set to notch Rs 300 crores in India and about Rs 500 crore across the world which will be a record of sorts.
It seems that all the protests have made people very curious about the content of the film which is the primary reason why the film is marching forward with such force at the box office. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “#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!”
