This week’s premier release, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Shahid, Deepika and Ranveer starrer, PADMAAVAT, managed a very good show despite all the hiccups and roadblocks, most of it due to non-cinematic reasons, and so let’s not get into it! The Wednesday paid previews pulled in 6 crore while Thursday added another 18 crore. The Republic Day saw the audience venturing into the cinema in a big way as the film collected a huge 30-31 crore. Thus PADMAAVAT has netted nearly 55 crore (to be validated) in two days (plus paid previews). And that without a full all India release in many states and partial release in a few states. A creditable performance indeed and the best is yet to come, touché wood!

Last week’s releases, Arbaaz-Ashmit’s NIRDOSH, Kay Kay Menon’s VODKA DAIRIES and Samir Soni’s MY BIRTHDAY SONG, saw a dull start at the ticket window and a very ordinary weekend. In fact, even MY BIRTHDAY SONG, which saw the best feedback from the audience, failed to get any benefits.
