The phenomena called as Padmaavat has entered its 2nd week with a bang. Though the movie is way more than what it has earned, but it surely has been ruling the box office. Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor & the entire cast-crew of the movie finally had a sigh of relief.
Padmaavat clocked a huge 16 crores on its 2nd Saturday which made sure the trend of the movie is still soaring high. If the early trends are to be believed the movie is all set to clock in the range of 18 crores on its 2nd Sunday. Going by the estimates the total of the movie could be in the range of 210 crores after its 2nd weekend.
Ranveer Singh, on a high after recording his biggest hit with Padmaavat, says box office numbers are a validation for him as an entertainer.
“It feels amazing. As an entertainer, box office numbers are a validation that I am being able to entertain audiences and to me that’s everything,” Ranveer said in a statement.
Padmaavat has earned the actor commercial and critical acclaim for his portrayal of Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji. The movie, since releasing on January 25, has minted Rs 192.50 crores till February 3.
“My intention with every project has been to make audiences believe in the character that I have been given to portray on screen,” said the actor, whose last big box office delight was Bajirao Mastani.
“Khilji was one of my toughest roles. Furthermore, the process of creating Khilji has been extremely rewarding. So, this success is incredibly special.”
“I’m thankful to Sanjay Leela Bhansali for giving me a film and a character that will always be remembered and cherished,” he added.
