Akshay Kumar is back with another film based on a social message after ‘ Toilet: Ek Prem Katha ‘ which was based on governmental campaigns to improve the sanitation conditions. ‘ PadMan ‘ revolves around the topic of menstruation and sanitary hygiene.
Starring superstar Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor, and Radhika Apte, Padman has already become hit at the box office but achieving more height doesn’t seem possible for it now. The movie is slowing down considerably after a week and the mark of 100-crore is still far away.
As a result, this comedy drama PadMan showed decent performance in the opening week and did the business of 62.87 crores, that included 40.05 crores of weekend and 22.82 crores of weekdays. In the second weekend as well, it remained steady and collected 9.03 crores with 2.10 crores on Friday, 3.15 crores on Saturday and 3.78 crores on Sunday.
Then in weekdays, asusual PadMan witnessed fall in occupancy across the country and did the business of 1.50 crore on 2nd Monday, 1.25 crore on 2nd Tuesday and 1 crore on 2nd Wednesday. On 2nd Thursday, it collected 1 crore and raised it’s 2 weeks total collection to 76.65 crores at domestic box office.
Being based on a relevant social issue, Padman has received huge appreciation from the audience as well as critics but still, single screens haven’t contributed much to its business. Due to high pre-release buzz, it was expected to perform steadily for long like Akshay’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha.
