Padmaavat gets Rs 18 cr on Day 1 despite protests and controlled release

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-delayed magnum opus has hit the big screen and while critics and fans are all praises for the film, protests against it continue in different parts of the country. Intense agitation accompanied by four states refusing to release the film in theatres has had a moderate impact on the film’s box office collections. Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana have defied the Supreme Court’s orders that state the film should be released without restriction.
