After releasing on 25 January, the period drama had marched past the Rs 100 crore figure in its opening weekend.
Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, the film is based on 16th century poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's poem "Padmavat". It was caught in a row after protests from Shri Rajput Karni Sena which contended that it distorts historical facts and dents the pride of the Rajput community.
