Last Friday’s release Pad Man is looking steady at box office as audience is constantly there for its shows. After 5 days, it has gone past the 50 crore mark and it’s about time for this social topic film starring Akshay Kumar. Yesterday being the holiday of Mahashivratri, there was a boost in its footfalls.
On 1st Tuesday, Pad Man collected 6.12 crore, which is a slight growth from Monday. Total of Pad Man is 52.04 crore. Today is Valentine’s Day so it will once again witness a rise in its occupancy hence collections.
Pad Man will collect 60+ crore by the end of its 1st week and after that its earnings will take a big dent as 2nd week will have two movies grabbing most of the screens: Aiiyaary and Black Panther.
This might be the first time after 2016 Akshay Kumar’s movie won’t be entering the 100 crore club. Had Pad Man released on 25th January, it could have done it. But, making a film on such a topic in India is a brave decision. Directed by R. Balki, Pad Man also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.
