The Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer, Padmaavat, striking gold at the box office in 2018, recently completed one year. Despite all the hardship that the movie had to go through prior its release, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film broke box-office records once it did hit theatres.
Although Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju was the highest earning films of 2018, it still fell short of beating three records that had been set by Padmaavat. Here are three unbeaten box-office records of Padmaavat:
HIGHEST COLLECTION ON ‘REPUBLIC DAY’ – DHS1 CRORE (RS24 CRORE)
Despite entangled in controversies for months before, the Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor-starrer made (Rs 24 crore) for its day 1 collection at the box-office. Till date, it remains the highest opening day collection on Republic day made by any Bollywood film.
HIGHEST OPENING WEEKEND ON ‘REPUBLIC DAY’ – DHS6 CRORE (RS 114 CRORE)
Padmaavat remains the highest-grossing Bollywood film when it comes to opening weekend box-office collections during the ‘Republic Day’ weekend.
HIGHEST GROSSING ‘REPUBLIC DAY’ RELEASE – Dhs 16CRORE (RS302 CRORE)
Together with the other records, Padmaavat is also the first film to crack the Rs 300 crore during the Republic Day weekend.
And to celebrate the success, the star cast of the film took to their social media handles to celebrate the special day.
