Although Padmaavat hasn’t been released in some states, still it managed to grab several eyeballs to the theatres. It collected a good amount of 5 crores on its paid preview day on Wednesday, 19 crores on its first day and 32 crores on its second day.

Till now, Padmaavat stands at the grand total of 56 crores at the box office which is not at all a bad figure. Due to the paid previews, the film got a good start on its first day. Padmaavat will grow huge as it is a long weekend and the positive word of mouth will help it bring in some big numbers.
Padmaavat has become Ranveer Singh’s biggest opening day collection. Now, that’s awesome! He deserves all the love as he has slayed in the film. After a long time, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has given us a villainous character which is being loved by everyone.
