New Delhi: Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor's "Padmaavat" has shattered major box office records. In India, the period drama has earned over Rs 276 crore and worldwide, the film currently stands at Rs 500 crore (whoa). To mark the success of "Padmaavat," the team has planned a grand party over the weekend and mid-day reports that bash will be held at Ark Deck Bar, a floating restaurant in Mumbai. Team "Padmaavat" has zeroed in on February 24 as the party date, as it is also director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 56th birthday. "The team did not want a run-of-the-mill party at a five star. So they zeroed in on the Ark Deck Bar, the floating restaurant that has an open-air bar deck, a sit-down restaurant and private dining areas. It not only offers stunning view as it sails off the coast into the sea, but will also give the stars privacy from the paparazzi," a source told mid-day.
