Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man collected 40 crore in its opening weekend and has shown a good hold on its 1st Monday at box office. It is crucial for this social film to show a strong sustenance over the weekdays to get a handsome 1st week total and judging by yesterday’s numbers, it is positively trending.
On its 4th day, Pad Man has collected 5.87 crore which is a fair number, considering its buzz and limited appeal. This R. Balki directorial has got great reviews and audience is also giving it a positive recommendation.However, you can’t expect such niche topic to earn as big as other Akshay Kumar films as Pad Man is mostly getting footfalls in multiplexes.
The total of this film in 4 days is 45.92 crore. It should touch or near the 60 crore mark by the end of 1st week. Thing is, apart from limited buzz, Pad Man is also getting a significant competition from Padmaavat which is running successfully in its 3rd week.
Akshay Kumar’s all last 5 films have entered the 100 crore club but Pad Man might not continue this pattern. It is looking at 80-85 crore lifetime total. 2nd week will not give it much advantage. Let’s see how Pad Man behaves in coming days.
