Deepika Padukone-starrer Padmaavat finally release on silverscreen after scaling a tumultuous path. Despite the fact that 4 Indian states are not screening Padmaavat, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film managed to earn 24 crore on Day 1 and special previews. Owing to Republic Day, which is a national holiday, the film had a tremendous Day 2 at the box office. On Friday, Padmaavat raked in Rs 32 crore in India. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news, tweeting on his official account.

He wrote: #Padmaavat has a HUMONGOUS Day 2... Had it been a smooth release [some states are not screening the film], the all-India biz would’ve touched ₹ 40 cr... Wed 5 cr, Thu 19 cr, Fri 32 cr. Total: ₹ 56 cr. India biz… SUPERB!

Talking about the overseas business of Padmaavat, the period drama earned Rs 2.34 crore in UK, Rs 52.45 lakhs in Germany, Rs 4.65 crore in Australia and Rs 76 lakhs in New Zealand.

Padmaavat is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period film based on the life and legends of Rajput Queen Rani Padmavati. It is based on the fictionalized poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi. The film has been facing protests from fringe groups like Rajput Karni Sena for distorting historical facts. Despite the outrage, Supreme Court gave the clear chit to Padmaavat, ordering the states to hold the screening of the film. However, 4 Indian states have defied SC’s orders and have banned the film. Barring these 4 states, Padmaavat has released pan India on January 25th
