Padmaavat crosses Rs 150 crore in one week


‘Padmaavat’ continues to attract big numbers at the box office and the film has managed to cross Rs 150 crore at the end of its first week. Shahid Kapoor-Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh-starrer made over Rs 50 crore over the weekend and added another Rs 12.50 crore on Wednesday, taking the film’s total business in India to Rs 155.50 crore. While the Karni Sena’s protests have died down, controversy refuses to leave the project. Swara Bhaskar’s strong opinion about glorifying the practice of jauhar (self-immolation) in the film continues to keep the film in the news.
