Adarsh's tweet read, "Protests... Disturbances... No screening in few states... Yet, #Padmaavat does EXCELLENT biz in its extended weekend... The film lost out on substantial biz [approx ₹ 35 cr / ₹ 37 cr], but the SUPERB trending in other circuits helped put up a MAJESTIC total... (sic)."
Adarsh's tweet read, "Looking at the overall scenario, #Padmaavat has put up FANTASTIC numbers in its extended weekend... Crosses ₹ 100 cr mark... Wed [limited previews] 5 cr, Thu 19 cr, Fri 32 cr, Sat 27 cr, Sun 31 cr. Total: ₹ 114 cr. India biz. 👍👍👍 (sic)."
Well, the film has smoothly cemented its position in the Rs 100 Crore club by amassing ₹114 Crore at the domestic box-office.
The Shahid Kapoor-Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh starrer has been in the news ever since it went on floors. The Karni Sena has been the prime group who have been vehemently opposing it, so much so that their vandalism also resulted in Bhansali getting slapped by their members during one of his shooting schedules. Few state governments (Rajasthan, MP, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Haryana) jumped in to throw spanners, but the intervention of the Supreme Court seeked by Bhansali and Viacom 18 (co-producer) enabled it to finally see the light of day.
And we certainly don't know what the Karni Sena achieved in disrupting the law and order. The eerie silence of the CMs of the opposing states was equally inexplicable.
