Padmaavat box-office collections: Deepika Padukone starrer touches Rs 225 cr in domestic earnings
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat continues to hold steady at the box-office, both in India and abroad. The film has been breaking records ever since it hit theater screens on 25 January this year after a slew of violent protests, agitation and threats from fringe groups across various corners in India.
At last count (6 February), the film has reportedly grossed Rs 225.25 crore at the domestic box-office, according to an India Today report.
Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh in lead roles. The movie also sees Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh in pivotal roles. The film is inspired by Malik Muhammad Jayasi's 16th century epic poem, Padmavat.
Bhansali's controversial period-drama was released across India, however a few states, namely Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, parts of Goa and Haryana, did not screen the film due to widespread protests surrounding its release.
Padmaavat is expected to reign at the box office till the coming Friday, after which Bollywood will see its next big release, Padman, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in titular roles.
