Padmaavat, earned Rs.5 crores from the paid reviews. On the first day, the movie collected Rs.18 crores , Rs. 32 crores on the second day , Rs. 27 crores on the third day and Rs.30 on the fourth day.
If we look at the collection till now, the movie has earned, Rs. 112 crores. The movie would have done crazy numbers if it had screened peacefully. The movie was banned in four major states, including Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan and some parts of Goa, because of widespread violent protests across the nation. Some people even restricted themselves from watching the movie to stay away from protests.
As per Taran Adarsh, the trade analyst Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmaavat” has suffered a loss of about Rs. 35-37 crores due to protests, disturbances and other reasons.
Protests… Disturbances… No screening in few states… Yet, #Padmaavat does EXCELLENT biz in its extended weekend… The film lost out on substantial biz [approx ₹ 35 cr / ₹ 37 cr], but the SUPERB trending in other circuits helped put up a MAJESTIC total…

Well, that’s a pretty huge loss, but the movie is still going strong in the screens.
Ranveer Singh who is getting a lot of appreciation and love for the wild character of Allauddin Khilji. He is the main attraction of the movie, according to some. He has nailed the role. Recently in an interview he expressed his views:
“I am on top of the world, over the moon. I am very happy for the entire team. This is not a normal movie that gets made every other day. It took a lot more time and effort from every department. Every member had put their best foot forward. I am extremely happy and relieved to see that these efforts are paying off. The role of Khilji took a lot out of me mentally, physically and emotionally. To see the kind of love I am getting makes very happy. I am thrilled and relieved. I took a leap of faith to play this character and the gamble has paid off.”
