Padmaavat: Ranveer Singh wishes Republic Day; trollers claim 'Khilji can't be patriotic'

Padmaavat: Ranveer Singh wishes Republic Day; trollers claim 'Khilji can't be patriotic'

Wednesday [limited preview screenings] 5 cr, Thursday 19 cr.

The curiosity built around Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Rs 190-crore Padmaavat has started translating to box-office collections, thanks to widespread Karni Sena protests and CBFC embargos; the movie, embroiled in controversies, has seen the highest opening ever for any Bhansali film so far. Bhansali's last discharge Bajirao Mastani had made an opening-day accumulation of Rs 12.80 crore net at the Indian film industry. This sum comes in despite a few state distributors deciding to collectively not screen the film. Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh portrays Alauddin Khilji, the 13th Century ruler of the Khilji Dynasty. The makers had also arranged paid previews across the country, a day before it was released. As per Ormax Cinematix, which forecasts first-day box office figures for unreleased films, Padmaavat would have opened at about Rs. 27.5 crore under normal circumstances, had there been no disruption of the shows. From vandalising the movie sets to assaulting the filmmaker to carrying out violent protests and announcing bounties on the cast and the filmmaker's head, Karni Sena has done it all. Whatever the reason true or fake but Sanjay Leela got a lot of media coverage without any cost. "The business of a film also grows due to repeat viewing on weekdays".

This movie will be shot in Rajasthan and Mumbai and the society themselves will bear the cost of production of the film.

According to film trade analyst Girish Johar, the trends suggest that Padmaavat will approximately have crossed the Rs 50 crore mark by the end of Friday itself. "That is in a way the best response we can give, through the work that we do", said Deepika.
