Despite a fractured release, Padmaavat has bagged good numbers on its paid preview shows all over the country. Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, the movie has been finally released amongst the protests. Let’s see how it has fared in its paid previews at the box office.
Padmaavat which is released fully from today i.e. 25th January 2018 but it was made open for all since yesterday evening. It was released in paid previews which started from 6pm in the evening in almost every screen in the country. But the Karni Sena protests took a serious turn as many theaters were forced not to screen the movie all over the country.
Because of the protests people are still in two thoughts if they should go and watch the film. Despite all these minuses the movie has went ahead and collected in the range 4 to 6 crores. The numbers are good considering all the factors which tried to put a brake on speed of the film. Today’s advance booking has took a hit because of the protests, people surely are terrified watching the proceedings of the protests. It would be interesting to see how despite the revolts Padmaavat will collect on its opening day.
The Supreme Court’s green signal for all-India screening of Padmaavat not with standing, Karni Sena chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi on Wednesday said the Rajput organisation won’t allow the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial to be released as it shows the Rajput queen in less than honourable light.
“We are adamant on our stand that this film should be banned. January 25 may come and go but we won’t let the film release, come what may,” Kalvi said.
He asked people for a self-imposed curfew to boycott the movie that insults the mother, Rani Padmavati.
