Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Padmaavat continues its splendid run at the box office. It seems the release of Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man has not affected the business of Padmaavat at the box office. After showing substantial growth over its third weekend, the film remained rock-steady and raked in Rs 3.20 crore yesterday. The costume drama now stands with total business of Rs 257 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the collections on his Twitter account, “#Padmaavat [Week 3] Fri 3.50 cr, Sat 6.30 cr, Sun 8 cr, Mon 3.20 cr. Total: ₹ 257 cr. India biz.”

The magnum opus has turned out to be the eighth highest grosser of all time after Baahubali 2, Dangal, PK, Tiger Zinda Hai, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan and Dhoom 3. It’ll be interesting to see whether Padmaavat will surpass the lifetime business of Dhoom 3 (Rs 284 crore) to grab the seventh position in the list. Apart from the domestic market, the film has performed phenomenally well in the international markets.

Padmaavat, which is produced under the banners of Viacom 18 and Sanjay Leela Bhansali productions also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, Jim Sarbh, Raza Murad and Anupriya Goenka. The makers of the film have already recovered good amount of chunk by selling satellite, streaming and audio rights. The costume drama has received praises from critics and audience for direction, cinematography and star performances. Out of the complete star cast, Ranveer Singh grabbed the lime-light and stole the show in the film. Our film critic Urmimala Banerjee gave the film four stars and said, “Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film is a visual delight and thoroughly entertaining fare, courtesy the epic performance by Ranveer Singh.”
