February has been a great month for many Bollywood films. While Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat continued to dominate the box office, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety gave tough competition to big-ticket films like PadMan.
PadMan box office collection day 6: The Akshay Kumar starrer has maintained its steady pace at the box office. It earned Rs 7.05 crore on Wednesday taking its total collection to Rs 59.09 crore in just six days.
PadMan box office collection day 5: The box office collection of R Balki’s social drama PadMan remains consistent on the second working day of the week. It remains to be seen if the Akshay Kumar starrer can pass the first week test.

PadMan box office collection day 3: Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan continues to show an upward trend at the box office. The film managed to mint Rs 16.11 crore on Sunday, at the box office, taking the total to Rs 40.05 crore.
