After a good opening, the film Padmavat has managed to show some good growth all over the country. The first day of Padmavat was not a national holiday, but the 2nd day (Friday) is. As a result, the film has shown huge growth for numerous reasons. The primary reason being that it’s a national holiday and there is no other film to watch, and second is the controversy which marketed the film big time.

The controversial film released with a New title Padmaavat instead of Padmavati. Not only this, a lot of changes were made in the film’s content following the protest of Karni Sena. Padmavat received strong reviews from the critics and also enjoyed a solid response in its paid preview shows. Let’s have a look at Padmavat 2nd day collection early estimates in details.

Effect of Protests on this film

Definitely, the fear of violence due to protests has caused a little damage to the film’s collection. Also, the restricted release in major cities of some states affected the movie to attract a large number of footfalls to its theaters. But still, the audience is going to their nearby cinemas to watch Padmaavat.

Paid Preview Response and Overseas Collection

Although the warnings by Karni Sena had spread fear in the air still, the paid previews response remained outstanding. On Wednesday evening only, the movie earned a handsome amount of Rs. 5 crores and on Thursday also people poured in lots of love to its basket.

The collection of the film in major international markets is also very good. It has collected around 2 crores on its opening day from UK, Australia, and NZL. This is a good figure considering that Thursday was not a Holiday in these countries.

2nd Day Estimates

The growth in many centers is a minimum of 20% and plenty of centers have shown growth up to 40%.
