Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat Collects 56 Crore in Two days

Box office collections may take a hit

The film had gathered Rs 19 crore on Thursday and Rs 5 crore from the paid reviews that occurred on Wednesday.

Mumbai: Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, who has registered his biggest opening day collection with "Padmaavat", says most people had told him that a hero shouldn't play the anti-hero.

Basically, unless there is any kind of adverse word of mouth that starts flowing or any kind of tension due to external factors that resumes (which is unlikely), the film should stay well on course to hit a century in quick time.

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh was released across the country yesterday amid tight security.




Padmaavat has been received well in global markets as well. Else the accumulations were relied upon to be near Rs 70 crore in two days. For Ranveer, whose previous best opening day records were for "Gunday" (Rs 16.12 crore net) and "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (Rs 16 crore net), playing a merciless anti-hero Alauddin Khilji was a gamble". One can't disregard the way that the film hasn't been discharged in places like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Bihar.

Every since the shoot of the movie started, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the cast and crew of Padmavat, have faced huge protests and anger from fringe groups and political leaders.

As PadMan, which was supposed to open on January 25, made a decision to postpone its release to avoid a clash with Padmaavat, there are no big releases to distract Padmavaat's audience. " Padmaavat" released amid heavy protests from Rajput Karni Sena and other fringe outfits because of which cinema owners declined to screen the film. "The feedback for the film has been overwhelming", a spokesperson of the production house said in a statement.
