Padmaavat: No film in recent memory was hit by controversies and political hullaballoo like this film. The makers had to bow before many ridiculous demands by right-wing groups like covering Deepika Padukone's midriff and even had to change the name of the film from Padmavati to Padmaavat. Based on 16th century Awadhi epic poem Padmavat, the film was about the legendary Rajput queen Rani Padmini whose portrayal apparently miffed many on the right side of political spectrum. But the film overcame every hurdle, and got the distinction of being a film with the biggest opening week. It earned Rs 166.5 crore.
