Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest release Padmaavat is finally a part of the coveted 250-crore club and it achieved this feat after a glorious 18-day run. Akshay Kumar’s new release Padman did not find many takers in small cities because of its content and that’s why Padmaavat remained the first choice for the moviegoers in those places. Padmaavat will continue its juggernaut at the box office if the upcoming release Aiyaary fails to impress the audiences. Looking at the current trend at the box office, it seems that Padmaavat may cross 285 crores in its lifetime.
