The film’s total collections now stand at more than Rs 114 crores. The period drama would have easily touched Rs 145 crores if not for protests and vandalism from fringe groups forcing theatre owners in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh to give it a no-show, the website claimed.
‘Padmaavat’, produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions, faced several protests from Rajput fringe groups, mainly Rajput Karni Sena, for ‘distorting history’ surrounding the Rajput Queen Padmavati.
