It can now be said. Padmaavat is a Blockbuster after enjoying a very good third week at the Box Office. The film has now collected 268 crore* and that is a very good number considering the fact that the first week numbers were 150.50 crore. This is the best trending for a Bollywood film which has entered the 200 Crore Club and the Sanjay Leela Bhansali flick is now set for bigger glories.
Dhoom: 3 lifetime of 284 crore is now not too far away and what has to be seen is whether that milestone is accomplished by the Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer by the end of fourth week itself. All said and done, the record is pretty much for the taking as the film is now set for a 290 crore total for sure.
Though 300 Crore Club is a really far target, the film can still take solace from the fact that it has managed to come so close despite not even seeing a proper release and that too amidst so much of trouble. Rest assured, the film could well have challenged Dangal lifetime [387.38 crore] had it seen a release across all states.
