Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial Padmaavat is working it’s magic on box office in India and abroad. Padmaavat has already crossed the lifetime business of Tiger Zinda Hai and Bajrangi Bhaijaan in the land of Australia. Biggest Hindi film in Australia so far is Aamir Khan starrer Dhoom 3 and Padmaavat will cross this number of collection by the end of Monday, 29 January 2018. Padmaavat has also surpassed the collections of Sanjay Bhansali’s last film Bajirao Mastani in Australia which was a tall order to cross.
Not only Padmaavat crossed the collections of these mammoth films but it actually did it in the matter of 1st week, which is incredible. Padmaavat has already crossed the 100 crore mark of success in India which officially makes it Shahid Kapoor’s biggest career hit. On the occassion Shahid actually went to Chandan Cinema in Mumbai and sw the film witht he audience to get the live reactions as they are phenomenal because the film is extremely loved by the audience and people are going multiple times to watch it on the cinema screen despite of high ticket rates and higher degree of threats from violent and radical protest against the film.
In India, Padmaavat has an extremely fractured release as it is not running at all in the states such as Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan where lies a lot of theaters that are harming the business of the film and also the distributors opportunity to make money on such a valued project which has immense hype in the eyes of audience especially because of the 2 month long controversy surrounding the film which was covered by the media in maximum capacity as if nothing else is happening in the country at least nothing that would gather as much TRP because the threats by Karni Sena and other radical groups got real when they caused loss to property and people.
