The film starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh was released yesterday after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) cleared it last month with a "U/A" certificate and five modifications, including the title change from "Padmavati" to "Padmaavat". As stupid as it may sound, but that has actually happened. The film, which has been released in over 4000 screens, is still facing a stiff protest in the states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. The said facebook post has now been pulled down (thankfully!). Exchange investigator Taran Adarsh uncovered Padmaavat's film industry gathering crosswise over three key overseas circuits - Australia, New Zealand and the UK. It was more of curiosity than the content which drove people to the theatres, who were left disappointed finding nothing controversial in the movie.

It now seems that they are taking this anger to all new level as news reports suggest that they are now in the process of making a film which is based on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's mother - Leela Bhansali.

As mentioned by Taran Adarsh, Padmaavat's business in some of the key worldwide markets have been phenomenal. Wednesday [limited preview screenings] 5 cr, Thursday 19 cr.

In the next 15 days, a "Muhurat" marking the commencement of the film would be performed and it would be released in a year's time.

According to film trade analyst Girish Johar, the trends suggest that Padmaavat will approximately have crossed the Rs 50 crore mark by the end of Friday itself. However, while some believe Bhansali has outdone himself, some believe that it is far from some of his best works.

Deepika plays the central character of Rani Padmavati in the movie, for which she has received praises galore.
