“Padmaavat”: special screening ahead of release
The controversy over Sanjay Leela Bhansali'sPadmaavat seems to have helped the film's box office collections, with the movie comfortably crossing the Rs 100 crore mark in just four days since its release.
Interestingly, neither Goliyon Raasleela Ram Leela nor Bajirao Mastani were his highest openers but Gunday (Rs 16.12 crore), followed by Ram Leela (Rs 16 crore).
According to boxofficeindia.com, Padmaavat minted Rs 30 crores on Sunday.
The figures come at a time when several multiplex owners in the country had shown reluctance to screen the film in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Goa. Padmaavat starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh is casting its magic at the ticket windows with each passing day.
Taran Adarsh mentions that one of the reasons behind Padmaavat's spectacular collection in North America could be due to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's huge fan-base.

The success of films like Judwaa 2, Golmaal Again, Tiger Zinda Hai and now Padmaavat has now yet again demonstrated that "desi" affairs with grass root appeal is bound to bring audiences in theaters.
Made on a mega budget of 200 crores, Padmaavat need to earn at least 200 crores to be called a hit at the box office.
