- Over the weekend, the film collected Rs 57 crore
- "Padmaavat" earned Rs 30 crore on Sunday
- "Padmaavat" is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh reports that "Padmaavat", in its opening weekend, has crossed the business of films like Dilwale, Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai (which is still running) and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. (The last three films star Salman Khan). Also, Mr Adarsh mentioned that "Padmaavat" has surpassed the collections of Deepika and Ranveer's 2013 film Bajirao Mastani, also directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Even in UK, Australia and New Zealand, "Padmaavat" is performing well.

In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee praised Ranveer's performance and wrote, "The director's most willing ally in this endeavour is Ranveer Singh, ebulliently evil and visceral in his portrayal of a venal villain on the rampage. He is never short on energy."
Deepika Padukone's "Padmaavat" released after a month's delay. It was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on December 1. Several Rajput groups protested against the film. The CBFC gave a green signal to the release earlier in January and suggested five modifications, including the title (which earlier was Padmavati).
