Padmaavat has emerged as a major success at the Box Office. The film has sustained extremely well on Monday with 15 crore coming in. These are fantastic numbers indeed since Thursday collections were 19 crore and this is a very good hold.
Overall collections of the film stand at 129 crore and with this the lifetime numbers of Ram Leela, the first film that saw Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone come together, have been left far behind. As a matter of fact it is now a given that the film would be the biggest success that the trio has given together since Bajirao Mastani would be history too in quick time.
It is now time for the film to race towards the 200 crore mark. That feat should be accomplished by end of the second week by the magnum opus and from there on it would be interesting to see where does the film eventually land up. For Deepika Padukone in particular, the film is now in a solid chance to be her biggest grosser as it has potential to surpass the total of Chennai Express.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
