Padmaavat has managed to outgross most of the Hindi films or Indian films in general to earn monumental business on box office. Film looked right into the eye of storm and went for a release even if it was fractured as it has still not released in four major states on India namely Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Goa. In it’s third week film is standing tall on the box office and has earned 254 crores nett while 352.12 gross collections in India business only.

It has broken several records worldwide and has beaten many films despite of the fact that there is no superstar in the film but it is the content of film itself doing some incredible business worldwide. Film has so far banked $118.89 million worldwide which would be somewhere around 120 crores in Indian rupees. Padmaavat was made and released on the budget of approximately 200 crores and will certainly managed to 2.5 times of the business which would declare this film a legit blockbuster and one of the most proficient visuals put on screen in the history of world cinema despite of many backlashes the movie faced.

At one point of time people have given up on the release of this film but when censor certificate came it got clear that this film will somehow release. Even than many states decided to put ban on the film in the name of Rajput politics but supreme court gave historical decision and lifted the ban from the film and it was free to release in entire country. Due to the very radical and violent threats protested by Karni sena and other religious groups in several states many distributors and exhibitors decided not to buy the film and showcase in their cinema theaters as their cinema halls would be burnt and destroyed. No one would be willing to take that kind of risk but film still managed to become a superhit.
