[Week 4] Fri Rs 1.75 crore. Total: Rs 269.50 crore. India biz. Note: Hindi + Tamil + Telugu."
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat released on January 25 after a lot of controversy. The Rajputs and Karni Sena were protesting against the movie and it got so ugly that release of the film was postponed from December 01, 2017. All this happened because a rumour hit the internet that a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh) and Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) will be a part of the film. And even after the makers clarified that no such sequence has been shot, the fringe groups kept protesting. In fact, the film was not released, even on January 25, in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat because of the law and order situation. However, the film has finally released in the states a few weeks back.
Padmaavat garnered fantastic reviews from the critics as well as the general public. People were impressed with the fantastic visuals, the stellar perfomances and the engaging plot. Looking at the current trends, Padmaavat should rake in Rs 275 crocr in its lifetime run.
