Pad Man has held on well on Monday with a drop of 40-45% from Friday as it grossed around 5.75 crore nett which has taken its four day total to 45 crore nett plus. The weeeknd trend was good but Sunday did not really go through and it could have dropped more on Monday but this is a solid showing on Monday.
There will be holiday period over the next two days with Mahashivratri on Tuesday but the holidays will be spread over two days with some states having holiday on Tuesday and others on Wednesday so its hard to tell how this will reflect on collections. It could be the jump comes on Tuesday and the Wednesday holds or the major growth comes on Wednesday.
The first weekend business of Pad Man is as follows.
Friday - 10,00,00,000 apprx
Saturday - 13,50,00,000 apprx
Sunday - 16,00,00,000 apprx
Monday - 5,75,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 45,25,00,000 apprx
The film has been appreciated in the metros like most other concept films so eventually there is a limit to how far these films can as there is a limited audience.
The performance where most Akshay Kumar films do well like Punjab, UP and Rajasthan is less than normal but likes of Bangalore and Pune are scoring much better than a Toilet or Jolly LLB 2.
