The film is already a member of Rs 200 club. Now, it seems Padmaavat box office collection is set to become even bigger and better. Here is the reason!
Padmaavat is creating magic at the box office. The film is already a member of Rs 200 club. Now, it seems Padmaavat box office collection is set to become even bigger and better. Here is the reason – Controversial film Padmaavat, which was not released in Madhya Pradesh last month due to security reasons, is likely to hit the screens in the state this week. Film distributors and theatre owners have agreed to screen the film after the state government assured to provide adequate security cover. “We had sought security cover from the state government for cinema halls and audiences for the screening of Padmaavat. The officials concerned assured us to provide security cover during the film’s screening. Accordingly, Padmaavat might be screened on February 8 in Indore and elsewhere in the state,” Central Circuit Cine Association president Jaiprakash Chouksey said. Theatre owners in Madhya Pradesh had last month decided not to screen filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh following large-scale protests and bandhs in several places.
“The cinema owners have sought security cover for the release of the movie on February 8. We have made preparations to provide security cover at the cinema halls for the release of the movie,” Indore range deputy inspector general (DIG) H C Mishra said.

Secretary of Bhopal Cinema Owners Association, Azizuddin, said that within three hours of the release of the film in Indore, it would be screened in the state capital. Of the 361 cinema halls across Madhya Pradesh, owners of 200 theatres are eagerly waiting to screen the movie, he said.
On January 23, two days before the nationwide release of “Padmaavat”, the Supreme Court had refused to modify its earlier order, which had cleared the decks for its screening.
Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh had petitioned the apex court to modify its order and stop the release of the movie.
The film is based on the 13th century battle between Maharaja Ratan Singh of Mewar and Sultan Alauddin Khilji of Delhi.
