Akshay Kumar’s socially relevant film, PadMan, has been from going strength to strength at the box office. The film, which released on February 9, has packed a soild punch over the weekend. After registering figures of Rs 10.26 cr and 13.68 cr on Friday and Saturday, it earned Rs 16.11 cr on Sunday. As per film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film’s total tally is now Rs 40.05 cr in first three days.

Earlier, it was supposed to hit the screens with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s now superhit film Padmaavat on January 25. But, was it a good match for Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone-starrer?

Let’s take a look at the first weekend collection of Padmaavat.

Padmaavat opened to paid previews on January 24, a Thursday, and garnered Rs 5 crore. It was a morale boosting number given the environment surrounding the film’s release and the limited numbers of theatres allotted to it.

In the next three days, Padmaavat went on to gather Rs 83 crore.
