Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor‘s Padmaavat was one of the most anticipated films of the year and looks like it has lived up to everyone’s expectations. Not only has it impressed one and all, but also set the box office on fire. The period drama raked in Rs 83 crore in the first three days. On day 4 (Sunday), Padmaavat raked in another Rs 31 crore, to take its overall box office tally to Rs 114 crore at the end of the opening weekend. Talking about the detailed breakdown of collections and current trends, trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed on Twitter, “Looking at the overall scenario, #Padmaavat has put up FANTASTIC numbers in its extended weekend. Crosses Rs 100 crore mark. Wed [limited previews] Rs 5 crore, Thu Rs 19 crore, Fri Rs 32 crore, Sat Rs 27 crore, Sun Rs 31 crore. Total: Rs 114 crore. India biz.”
Padmaavat has not only crossed the Rs 100 crore in just four days, but has also broken several records during the first weekend. Firstly, it has given Shahid his first hundred crore film. It is also the fastest Rs 100 crore film for Ranveer, Shahid and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It is also the highest opening weekend grosser for Ranveer, Shahid and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
