Padmaavat has an excellent first extended week as it grossed 166.50 crores. It maintained the steady pace on weekdays after an extraordinary opening weekend.
The huge number has come despite the fact that film was not released in some of the states. It would have easily gone over 200 crores in the week if there was no ban. The film has already emerged a box office success and will be a super hit in its final run.
The hold on second Friday will be important in deciding the lifetime total. As of now the trend is suggesting a lifetime of 250 crores but can go higher as there is lack of competition in the second week.
