Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat is well on its way to creating history with the paid preview shows and pre-bookings going house full. Despite protests, the movie has managed to earn good numbers through its paid previews a day before its full release.
The huge expectations and immense hype surrounding the film’s release is a testament to how the country has eagerly been waiting to witness the period drama.
Already creating a splash at the box office before its release, the film has everything going for it with rave reviews coming its way not to mention Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s tryst with blockbuster films.
The movie has earned 5 crores on the day before its main release. The shows of the movie started from 6 pm on the evening of 24th January. The number is good considering the kind of revolts it has been facing from Kari Sena in the various parts of the world.
Going by the early trade predictions, if there is any film that has the potential to break records and have cash registers ringing at the box office after blockbusters like SS Rajamouli ‘s Baahubali 2 and Tiger Zinda Hai ,it’s Padmaavat.
Adds trade guru Komal Nahta, “So brilliant is the film that it has the potential to smash box-office records. Kudos to Sanjay Leela Bhansali.The film was going to be a blockbuster; it is going to be a blockbuster.The curiosity surrounding the film is unprecedented”.
