‘Padmaavat’ beat record of Dangal and Baahubali 2

Mumbai, India (Web Desk): The highly anticipated epic movie ‘Padmaavat’ managed to smash the record of Dangal and Baahubali 2 on its worldwide release day.

Amid widespread protests around cinema halls by various fringe outfits in Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra, Padmaavat had released in the theaters on January 25 and it has collected Rs 19 crore on its opening day.

Trade analysts were not very hopeful for the movie before its release. However, the movie smashed the global record of Dangal and Baahubali 2 at the international markets.

Though, the film collected around 19 crore Indian rupees on day one, it collected 3.67 lac dollars in the global market beating the record earning of Dangal- 2.47 lac dollars and Baahubali II 2.12 lac dollars. 

The film, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, angered many after the Shree Rajput Karni Sena alleged it distorted historical facts related to the Rajput community.
