ranveer singh in padmavati Padmaavat box office collection day 3: The Sanjay Leela Bhansali film is expected to cross Rs 100 crore mark in the first weekend.

The beauty of Rani Padmavati aka Deepika Padukone, the righteousness of Shahid Kapoor as Raja Ratan Singh and a completely off-the-rails character of Ranveer Singh as Allaudin Khilji has left the audience in awe of this Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. Padmaavat has managed to earn Rs 27 core on Saturday, taking its total collection to Rs 83 crore. The makers are also confident that Padmaavat will register a huge collection on Sunday.

It seems the long weekend is working well for the film, which has remained in the news for quite some time now. Despite the protests, the film has managed to win hearts of the audience and come out victorious in terms of box office performance. While in some states, the controversy has worked against the film (some states have not released the film), in others, people are keen to find out why Padmaavat is courting controversy time and again.

Padmaavat box office collection:

January 27 – Rs 27 crore

January 26 – Rs 32 crore

January 25 – Rs 19 crore

January 24 (Paid Previews) – Rs 5 crore

Total – Rs 83 crore

Meanwhile, the film is performing really well in the international markets. While its performance in Australia and Ireland is exemplary, it has become the highest grossing Hindi film in North America with its collection of Rs 11 crore (GBOC) on January 27.

Padmaavat has been lauded by critics and audiences alike. In her review of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta said, “All those agitating over how Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat would trample all over Rajput pride, you may rest easy: the director didn’t need a memo from the Karni Sena and all the other self-styled ‘armies’ on keeping it ‘sanskaari’ — his entire film is a relentlessly opulent, magnificently-mounted paean to Rajput ‘aan baan shaan’.”
