Despite all the opposition and controversy, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat released as per schedule on 25th January 2018 and that too, to a rousing response. The audience verdict has been unanimously positive – with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s grandeur and scale , and Deepika, Ranveer and Shahid’s performances hitting the right note.

And even though Padmaavat did not release in four states across the country, it crossed the 100 crore mark at the box office in just four days!

Not just that Ranveer, Deepika and Shahid set new records with the 100 crore mark! While Padmaavat became Shahid’d first film to hit 100 crores, it was Ranveer’s third. And with Padmaavat’s touching 100 crores, it became Deepika’s eight 100 crore film!

Padmaavat’s dream run continued through the first week and it crossed the coveted 150 crore mark as well!

And as expected by the end of the second weekend Padmaavat managed to cross 200 crores at the Box office, with trade pundits noting that had Padmaavat screenings not faced any roadblocks due to protests and no screenings in some states, it would have crossed 200 crores in the first week itself!

Internationally too, Padmaavat’s collections have been more than promising especially in North America and Australia – having already crossed 2 million in Australia and crossed 5 million dollars in North America in the opening weekend itself!
