Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus ‘Padmavaat’ crosses a humongous Rs 540 crore mark
Even after one month of its theatrical release, the film is putting up a great show at many centers across the country.
Breaking all myths, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s gobsmackingly epic film Padmaavat has smashed a string of records at the box office within days of its release. Headlined by Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor, the film arrived in cinemas on 25th January and opened to an extremely positive response. The film was lauded not only by critics but the audience also. Resultantly, Padmaavat has emerged as the biggest grosser of 2018 both in India and overseas markets. The film has pulled in over Rs. 540 crores worldwide.
What goes to show the incredible popularity of the magnum opus at the cash counter is that it has been a money spinner in what is normally looked at as the 'lean period' with no holidays or long weekends. The film has been earning handsomely right from the day it hit the screen and, almost after a month, it is still attracting the audience across the world. While many other films have come and gone, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavaat' has been going strong.
With both critics and audiences loving the period drama, it looks like Padmaavat will break a few more box office myths and records before wrapping up its box office run.
