The Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor starrer Padmaavat that was directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali released a week ago after much controversies. However, though the film received an all clear from the censor board and the Supreme Court, certain territories did not feature any shows of Padmaavat. But despite this handicap the business of Padmaavat has been registering good numbers since day one.
In this box office analysis we take a look at the opening week collections of Padmaavat while comparing the same to Ranveer Singh’s previous releases. Surpassing Ranveer’s previous releases Bajirao Mastani that had collected Rs. 86.15 cr in its first week Padmaavat has managed to draw in a staggering Rs. 166.50 cr to become Ranveer Singh’s highest first week grosser. In fact, the opening week business of Padmaavat has been better than the actor’s other releases like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela that collected Rs. 82.15 cr, Gunday that collected Rs. 63.08 cr, Dil Dhadkne Do that collected Rs. 56.1 cr, Befikre that collected Rs. 50.43 cr, Kill Dil that collected Rs. 29.28 cr, Lootera that collected Rs. 26.8 cr, Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl that collected Rs. 24.93 cr, and Band Baaja Baaraat that collected Rs. 9.40 cr.
While achieving Rs. 100 cr within three days of its release was a feat that Padmaavat accomplished with ease, reports state that Padmaavat is more than likely to cross Rs. 200 cr at the box office in the coming few days.
