Padmaavat Is First Blockbuster Of 2018.
Box Office India Trade Network.
Padmaavat is the first BLOCKBUSTER of 2018 as collections remain strong in week six and the film is on the verge of crossing 280 crore. The film collected a very good 4 crore nett in its sixth week and is now looking at lifetime business in the 283-285 crore nett range. It is very rare for January to have a success of this magnitude.
The film did not look like crossing the 280 crore nett mark but the last two weeks have seen very steady collections with week six dropping around 30% only. The film was a blockbuster on real value collections anyway but now is also a blockbuster on its collections which will be close to 285 crore nett and a share near 140 crore. .
The business in Overseas is also huge as its looking to finish very close to $28.50 million range which could put it in second place for films in Hindi language behind Dangal which did $30.70 million. Basically the worldwide theatrical share will cover its cost of 215 crore and the revenue coming from satellite, digitial, music, etc will be profit and it will be in the 100 crore region.
