Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus emerged as one of the biggest successes of the year. Despite several controversies, the movie was well accepted by the audience. After collecting 24 crores on opening day (including paid previews), Padmaavat maintained an impressive hold on Monday by making 15 crores.
Bashed by critics and audiences alike, Race 3 scored reasonably well at the box office only due to the stardom of superstar Salman Khan. Though it witnessed a considerable drop from its opening day (29.17 crores), the movie brought a respectable amount of 14.24 crores on Monday.
The sci-fi action thriller was one of the anticipated releases of the year. Despite mixed reviews from critics, 2.0 struck a chord with masses due to its superlative VFX work and performances by Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar. After a decent start of 20.25 crores, the movie witnessed a normal drop on Monday by collecting 13.75 crores.
