Pad Man also showed an uptrend like Padmaavat on Tuesday due to Mahashivratri holiday at places. The film collected 6 crore nett on Tuesday to take its five day rotal to over 51 crore nett. The gains were a little less than Padmaavat as it was collecting at a higher level. Padmaavat went up by around 10% while Pad Man went up by 5%.
There is a holiday for Mahashivratri today as well and Valentines Days also which will aid the film again though it may not be the normal Valentines Day growth as some of that growth will have been factored into collections on the Monday partial holiday. The week is going over 60 crore nett but by how much will depend over the next two days.
The first five day 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
Tuesday - 6,00,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 51,25,00,000 apprx
Pad Man is contining to do well in Mumbai and Pune although the collections were helped as it was a partial holiday in Maharashtra on Tuesday.
North India did not have a holiday but collections held pretty well there with a drop of around 5%. The other places like Bihar and CI are showing low collections but that is always going to happen with this type of film which does not have anything for the mass audience barring the presence of Akshay Kumar.
