The stability for the release environment of Padmaavat was evident from its 2nd day and that benefited it on its 3rd day as the protests finally stopped and audience is now coming to theaters without any fear or worry. After minting 32 crore on Republic Day, Padmaavat continues to score big on its 1st Saturday.
What’s great is that the drop in its collections than its previous day is not much which means the footfalls are stable. Padmaavat collected 27 crore on its 3rd day. Its occupancy was 70% and in some regions, it was better than its opening day.
The total of Padmaavat is now 83 crore. This is a happy news for Viacom 18. Today is Sunday so again there will be 25+ crore earnings which means 100 crore mark is easily going to be crossed. This is exactly what was expected from the film.
One might wonder, what would have happened if Padmaavat would have got a full fledged release? It could have collected 40 crore on its opening day and 100 crore mark would have been surpassed by 3rd day itself. This Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial needs to keep earning such numbers for next few days as it has a big budget. It has 2 open weeks to do that.
Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, it is a story of bravery and dignity of Queen Padmavati and the valor of Rajputs.
