Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat has broken all box office myths to become the biggest grosser of 2018 both in India and overseas markets. The film currently stands with a grand total of Rs 540 crores at the international market.
On the domestic front, the film has grossed Rs 269.50 crores.
What goes to show the incredible popularity of the magnum opus at the box office is that it has been a money spinner in what is normally looked at as the ‘lean period’ with no holidays or long weekends.
While other films have come and gone, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavaat has been going strong.
With both critics and audiences loving the period drama, Padmavaat looks like it will break a few more box office myths.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role of Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh portrays Alauddin Khilji.
Padmaavat is based on the legend of Rani Padmini, a Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Avadhi poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540, has been facing protests from various groups, particularly Shri Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.
