Even after facing several protests and controversies, Padmaavat is standing strong as bull at the box office. Not only at the Indian box office but also at the overseas box office.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus touched the 100 crore mark in just 4 days at the Indian box office.
Talking about the overseas collections, Padmaavat has successfully managed to mark its outstanding presence over there too. The film has collected a whopping amount of USD $ 12 million (76.24 crore) in its opening weekend. Now, that’s a huge number!
With such overwhelming numbers, Padmaavat might get enter in the list of top 10 overseas films soon. To enter this list, this Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer film will have to cross the USD $ 20 million and surpass Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai (USD $ 20 million) total collection.
Out of many benchmarks that Padmaavat has crossed, it has also become Shahid Kapoor’s top grosser film of all time. Speaking about his happiness, Shahid recently said, “You know everyone is talking about the top grosser only, but it is a great film. The first feeling that I have is that we have come a long way, it’s a year & a half of a journey and there was a time that we were wondering if the film will release or no. So, it’s been a very turbulent journey and emotionally very draining, tiring. We were just waiting to showcase a film and share it with everybody. The first thing that I feel is that validated with the fact that the film has come out and people have said so many beautiful things about the film. You feel good about the fact that the intent, with which the film was made, has been seen and people have loved it.”
