Padmaavat had a very strong hold on its third Monday as it dropped around just 10% to collect in the 3-3.25 crore nett range. The film has now crossed 245 crore nett and should hit 30 crore nett for the second week with the partial holidays over the next few days.
The way this film is going it looks like that it can go to the 275 crore nett mark and in real value that would mean around 375 crore nett and that is with taking a normal ratio for Gujarat and without giving benefit to the Bhansali factor whose films normally do best in Gujarat. Though again this because of the hype created by the huge controversy. It is not that if the film had released like a normal film all across India it would have done 375-400 crore nett.
The business of Padmaavat till date is as follows.
First Week - 1,59,47,00,000
Second Week - 64,75,00,000 apprx
Friday - 3,50,00,000 apprx
Saturday - 6,25,00,000 apprx
Sunday - 8,00,00,000 apprx
Monday - 3,25,00,000 apprx
Third Week - 21,00,00,000 apprx (4 Days)
Grand Total - 2,45,22,00,000 apprx
The film has started to beat the lifetime numbers of Dangal and Tiger Zinda Hai at places and will go ahead at many centers by the end of its run.
