Padmaavat Box Office Collection Day 2: Deepika-Shahid-Ranveer's movie earns Rs 56 crore

Although its opening day, Thursday, was a little underwhelming in terms of business due to Karni Sena protests across multiple states, Friday witnessed housefull theatres and set the cash registers ringing for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat. Likewise, trade analysts expected the long weekend to be its actual big days for collections. Moreover, people were expecting tight security across cities on Friday that was Republic Day, which could be one of the reasons for the day's collections.

According to Taran Adarsh, Padmaavat earned Rs 32 crore on Friday, taking the total to Rs 56 crore. He believes that a peaceful release could have enabled the movie to touch Rs 40 crore on Friday.

The movie has done well in UK and Germany as well.

Padmaavat has been received particularly well in Australia.

As mentioned by Taran Adarsh, Padmaavat's business in some of the key international markets have been phenomenal.

Although the Karni Sena is still not backing down, audiences have decided to watch Bhansali's much-awaited movie. Padmaavat has mostly received positive reviews. However, while some believe Bhansali has outdone himself, some believe that it is far from some of his best works. The actors too have been praised for their performances, particularly Ranveer Singh with some saying that the movie truly, only belongs to him as he has overshadowed everyone.

Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Raja Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji. It is based on Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic poem 'Padmavat'.
