Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Controversy film Padmaavat starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor earns Rs 110cr at box office in the first weekend of its release. Padmaavat box office collection is as much the audience’s response to the film’s creative merit as to the hate mongers and the fringe groups. deepika-padukone

Despite widespread protests against the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film even after the Supreme Court ordered state governments to maintain law and order during its release, Padmaavat has managed to emerge victorious at the box office. padmavati

After a rather damp show at the paid previews, the Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh-starrer made opening collections of Rs 19 crore on Thursday and the numbers have only increased over the weekend. The movie collected Rs 30 crore on Sunday, according to film trade website boxofficeindia. Shahid_Kapoor
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh had tweeted the earlier figures: Rs 5 cr (paid previews on Wednesday), Thursday Rs 19 cr, Friday Rs 32 cr, Saturday Rs 27 cr. Total: Rs 83 cr within three days of release. Padmaavat stars Deepika in the lead role of Rani Padmini. Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh portrays Alauddin Khilji, the 13th century ruler of the Khilji Dynasty.After earning Rs 19 crore on Thursday, Padmaavat took a major jump on Friday (Republic Day and a holiday) to Rs 32 crore. Mixed reviews led to a slight dip in the collections on Saturday to Rs 27 crore but the numbers rose again on Sunday, totalling Rs 110 crore for the film over the extended weekend. Padmavati-Ranveer-Singh

Made at an estimated budget of Rs 180 crore, Padmaavat was expected to be one of the biggest release of 2017. However, almost a year long protest that often turned violent, and a delay at the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) postponed the film to January. Even when it hit theatres on January 25, most theatres in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh did not screen the film fearing further violent incidents.
