Padmaavat grossed 256 crore nett in three weeks and has not been released in Gujarat or Rajasthan as yet and saw a release in Madhya Pradesh in its third week. The film suffered in its opening week in Bihar and over the weekend in Delhi / UP and Haryana..
If we apply the average ratios of where the business is missing then the 256 crore nett after three weeks would equate to 336 crore nett after three weeks. An average ratio of the big films has been given but there is no doubt that the film would have out performed in Gujarat and Rajasthan which would make the total even higher. Its fair to say that the film would be at Dangal level at least and this is without the Xmas factor which Dangal had last year.
Bahubali - The Conclusion is at another level but Padmaavat can compete with any other Hindi film even though the amount collected at the box office will not be as high as some but there are reasons for that. It would have basically got around 375 crore nett at least with a clean release but the other side is would we be talking of these numbers if the film had released like any normal release without the hype created by probably the biggest controversy ever for a film in India. In another words could this star cast with this content actually have taken it this far without the external factors.
