The movie which opened with a collection of Rs 19 crore has been maintaining a figure since its release. Notably, after Thursday, the movie quickly picked pace on Friday with a humongous collection of Rs 32 crore and its graph has been on the upswing ever since. On its first Sunday, Padmaavat continued its winning streak and made Rs 31 crore. In international markets too, Padmaavat’s performance has been exceptional. Its Saturday collection in North America was reported to be the highest ever for a Hindi film. In Australia too, it has crossed the lifetime business of previous hits like Bajirao Mastani, Dilwale, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai, as per a tweet by Box-Office analyst Taran Adarsh.
The film which is based on the 16th century epic, “Padmaavat” by poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi, faced controversy after various Rajput groups accused Bhansali of “distorting historical facts” with the portrayal of queen Padmavati. However, Bhansali had repeatedly denied the claim.
The film was released on January 25 after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) cleared it last month with a ‘U/A’ certificate and five modifications, including title change from “Padmavati” to “Padmaavat”. In the coming days, Padmaavat may well create history with record Bollywood figures as the movie-goers are going gaga over Ranveer Singh’s performance as the anti-hero Alauddin Khilji, Deepika Padukone’s potrayal of Rani Padmavati and Shahid Kapoor’s performance as Maharawal Ratan Singh.
