After collecting 10.26 crore on its opening day, trade was expecting Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man to show a strong growth on its 2nd day and it has done it. The movie witnessed an influx of audience with impressive numbers, proving that it has accepted the movie.
It’s hard to promote and attract a film with a topic of menstruation which is still considered a taboo in many parts of our country. However, with Akshay Kumar in a lead and thoughtful promotions, Pad Man has managed to reach the core audience.
On its 2nd day, Pad Man grew strongly and it collected 13.68 crore which is a happy number and indicator of good prospects for film in coming days. The total of the movie is now 23.94 crore in 2 days. Unlike Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which was a mass entertainer with appeal in both urban regions as well as small centers, Pad Man is mostly a multiplex film so the collections are actually very good.
Moreover, families might not watch it as much as the young crowd, women and adults so it is a pretty comprehensive earning. With exceptional reviews from critics and recommendations from everyone, Pad Man is growing nicely and will be collecting in the same range on higher tomorrow as well.
This R. Balki directed movie will be touching the 40 crore mark in its opening weekend. Content driven films tend to show a very strong sustenance in weekdays too, so Pad Man is expected to hold well in weekdays. With 2750 screens in India, it is doing a good business. Padmaavat is still there attracting a significant number of crowd but it is not a big concern for Pad Man.
Final numbers will be updated soon.
