Padmaavat Box Office Collection: On January 25, one of the most talked about movie in the recent times hit theatres and reached new highs at the box office. Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed movie Padmaavat is in its fourth week now at the box office and so far the movie has earned huge amounts. By adding up the numbers so far, this Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh starrer has earned a mammoth figure of Rs 276.80 crore at the box office. It should be noted that the figure includes earnings from Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote: “#Padmaavat continues to set the BO ablaze… Crosses ₹ 275 cr mark… [Week 4] Fri 1.75 cr, Sat 3 cr, Sun 4 cr. Total: ₹ 276.50 cr. India biz… Note: Hindi + Tamil + Telugu.”

Padmaavat also happens to be the first movie to enter the Rs 200 crore club with a lead female protagonist. However, it should be noted that such success at the box office has not come easily as the movie has been marred by controversies. Fringe groups like the Karni Sena had protested against the release of the movie. The fringe group demanded that the movie should not release as it showed the lead protagonist, Rani Padmaavati (played by Deepika Padukone) in a bad light.

At the height of the protests, a bounty was put on the heads of actress Deepika Padukone and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Padmaavat was earlier titled Padmavati and was scheduled to release in December 2017. However, the release of the movie was delayed as an application for certification was rejected by the Censor Board due to lack of documents.
