Clearly, due to full support of the audience, Padmaavat has given a tight slap on the face of its opposition.
Wonderful Performance – Could Have Set New Records
Due to less number of openings at some places in major cities, the film’s collection has got affected. Had it been a peaceful release, it would have set a new opening day record at the box office.
