Padmaavat box office collection day 10: Movie collects Rs 192.50 crore

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat has been creating magic at the box office ever since its release on January 25. And now with a smooth 10-day run at BO, the period drama has collected a whopping Rs 192.50 crore.

The Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer earned Rs 16 crore on its second Saturday, taking the total collection to Rs 192.50 crore. The film might soon hit the Rs 200 crore mark. Padmaavat had run into a lot of trouble prior to its release with a few fringe outfits, who had issues with the movie’s content and its depiction of Queen Padmavati. From the film’s name being changed to lead star Deepika’s midriff being covered using special effects; the movie has been attracting a lot of attention for quite a while now.

Indianexpress.com’s film critic Shubhra Gupta had given the movie a 2.5 star and had written in her review of the movie, “If it hadn’t been for the extreme reactions from a bunch of extreme reactionaries-cum-buffoons which nearly derailed the release the film, Padmaavat would have been just another Bhansali extravaganza, full of costumery and puffery. But given that all art is political, even if it is dressed up art, Padmaavat becomes more than it is, because the director chooses to heavily outline the vileness of his antagonist, and underline the ‘pati-vrata ness’ of Rani Padmavati.”

A break-down of Padmaavat’s day-wise collection: 

Saturday, February 3 – 16 Cr.
Friday, February 2 – 10 Cr.
Thursday, February 1 – 11 Cr.
Wednesday, January 31 – 12.5 Cr.
Tuesday, January 30 – 14 Cr.
Monday, January 29 – 15 Cr.
Sunday, January 28 – 31 Cr.
Saturday, January 27 – 27 Cr.
Friday, January 26 – 32 Cr.
Thursday, January 25 – 19 Cr.
Wednesday, January 24 (Paid Previews) – 5 Cr.

Current Total – 192.5 Cr.

“Far from any subtle touches, Bhansali’s black-and-white delineation of the good Hindu and the bad Muslim (who could also, gasp, swing both ways) is so stark that we are left with no illusion about which part of the political firmament he wants to be on the right side of.”

Padmaavat has been going strong at the box office, but only time will tell if it manages to keep all the money in its pocket after Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan hits theaters on February 9. Akshay had shifted the release date of his movie to let Bhansali’s Padmaavat breathe freely at the box office. Earlier, both the films were supposed to release on January 25.

Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor urge donations for safe menstruation for all

Actors Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor, who play lead roles in Padman – a film highlighting awareness on menstrual hygiene – have collaborated for a video #AbSamjhautaNahin – The Shopping List, stressing on how the silence around menstruation needs to be broken.

Sonam Kapoor and Akshay Kumar will be seen in Padman, a film that aims to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene.

The video, by Culture Machine’s digital channel Blush along with ITC’s Vivel, is a spoken word piece listing alternatives to sanitary pads that women in most parts of the country resort to during periods — and they range from old and dirty rags to unsafe objects like ash, coconut husk and hay.

It concludes with Akshay and Sonam urging viewers to donate a minimum of Rs 400 to The Vatsalya Foundation in order to facilitate a year-round availability of sanitary pads to women in various parts of the country.

Akshay said in a statement, “The sense of shame around menstruation is compounded by lack of hygiene products. This can make life difficult for women and girls, who often miss work or school when they’re having their periods. Through the video, we wish to bring out things in the open, so the chance for their being taboos and stigmas kind of starts to dissipate.”

Sonam added, “Due to the secrecy surrounding menstruation, many disadvantaged women and girls end up using unhygienic material which result in serious infections. Through the video, we wish to educate citizens of the country and break the culture of silence around menstruation”.”

With the funds raised through this video, Sakhi Pads will be purchased and distributed to underprivileged women, said Swathi Mukherjee, Director, The Vatsalya Foundation.

‘Sayaani’ is composed by Amit Trivedi, while Kausar Munir has penned the lyrics. Yashita Sharma, Jonita Gandhi, Yashika Sikka and Rani Kaur have sung this beautiful number that celebrates a girl’s first period.

‘PadMan’, directed by R Balki is the maiden production venture of Twinkle Khanna.

पीरियड होने पर जब लड़की को चुप रहने के लिए कहते हैं तभी उसका CONFIDENCE डगमगाने लगता है – अक्षय कुमार

माहवारी (Menstruation) या पीरियड पर चुप्पी तोड़ने और Sanitary Napkin की जरुरत पर बनी अपनी नई फिल्म ‘पैडमैन’ लेकर आ रहे अभिनेता अक्षय कुमार कहते हैं  “हमारे देश में जब लड़कियों के पीरियड्स आने पर जब सब उसे चुप रहने को कहतें हैं तो  यहीं से उसका Confidence डगमगाने लगता है.

अक्षय कहते हैं “हमारे देश में जहां लोग पीरियड्स जैसी बातों पर खामोश रह जाते हैं वहीं हमारे ही देश में दक्षिण में जब किसी लड़की को पहली बार पीरियड्स होते हैं तो खुशियां मनाई जाती हैं. लेकिन वहीं हमारे देश के दूसरी जगहों पर इन सारी बातों को छुपा कर रखा जाता है.”

फिल्म पैडमैन 25 जनवरी को रिलीज हो रही है. फिल्म में उनके साथ सोनम कपूर और राधिका आप्टे मुख्य किरदारों में दिखाई देंगी. ‘PadMan’ में मुख्य क़िरदार निभाने वाले अक्षय कुमार से इसी मुद्दे और फिल्म पर  बात की वुमनिया संवाददाता रूना आशीष ने..
confidence
Padman First Look

सवाल-फिल्म ऐसे विषय पर बनी है जिसके बारे में कोई कुछ नहीं कहता.

अक्षय-  बिल्कुल सही बात है. इस विषय पर लोग चुप रहना ज्यादा पसंद करते हैं. हमारी फिल्म में यही मुद्दा उठाया गया है. मेरी फिल्म में एक डायलॉग है If women strong country strong. मेरी सोच बिल्कुल ऐसी ही है.

हमारा देश तभी मजबूत बनेगा जब हम हमारे देश में महिलाओं को मज़बूत बनाएंगे. हम लाखों करोड़ों रुपए के हथियार खरीद भी लें ताकि देश को मज़बूती मिल सके तो भी कोई मतलब नहीं है. जिस औरत से जन्म लिया है अगर वो ही मज़बूत नहीं है तो कोई मतलब नहीं है.

सवाल-आप जीएसटी के बारे में क्या कहेंगे इस पर 12 %  टैक्स  लगता है

अक्षय-देखिए मेरा तो मानना है कि टैक्स की बजाय सैनिटरी पैड्स को मुफ्त में बांटना चाहिए. अगर हमें हमारे देश की महिलाओं को मज़बूत बनाना है तो उन्हें सैनिटरी पैड्स मुफ्त में देने चाहिए.
confidence
Padman stars Akshay Kumar, Soman Kapoor and director R. Balki
ये कोई आज की ज़रूरत वाली बात नहीं. अब समय आ गया है कि हमें इस पर बात करनी चाहिए. ये तो रोज़मर्रा की ज़रूरी चीज़ है. मेरी राय में तो देश की सारी महिलाओं को ये सैनिटरी नेपकिन्स मुफ्त दिए जाने चाहिए.

सवाल- टॉयलेट एक प्रेम कथा के बाद यह आपकी दूसरी सामाजिक फिल्म है. यह आईडिया कहां से आता है?

अक्षय-मुझे किसी भी फिल्म का आइडिया लोगों से बातचीत के बाद आता है. यह जरूरी नहीं है कि ये बातचीत किसी फिल्म की स्क्रिप्टिंग वाली बातें ही हों.

जैसे मैं अपनी एक महिला फैन से मिला. उन्होंने मुझसे एक सवाल किया कि मैं अगली फिल्म किस सामाजिक समस्या पर करने वाला हूं. मैंने उससे पूछा कि आप बताइए, क्या आपके पास कोई आइडिया है जिस पर मुझे फिल्म बनानी चाहिए. जवाब में उसने कहा कि आप अगली फिल्म दहेज प्रथा की समस्या पर बनाइए.’

#MyFirstBlood- मानों उस दिन PAPA ही मां बन गए थे

अक्षय बोले “उस लड़की की बात सुन कर मैं थोड़ा चौंक गया, मेरे दिमाग में कई तरह के सवाल कौंध गए, मैं उससे पूछना चाहता था कि क्या वह दहेज की समस्या से पीड़ित हुई है, लेकिन उस मौके पर मेरा उससे सवाल करना ठीक नहीं था, इसलिए मैंने उसे आश्वासन दिया कि जरूर मैं दहेज की समस्या पर फिल्म बनाकर लोगों को जागरूक करने की कोशिश करूंगा.”

Padman new song Hu Ba Hu: Watch Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor in a sweet, inspiring journey

Behind every successful man is a woman, goes the oft used and tired cliche. But what if we tell you that the man and woman don’t have to be related but can simply be ‘Hu Ba Hu’ in essence? Well, that’s what the third song from Akshay Kumar-starrer Padman seems to be saying.

The song, shared by Akshay on Thursday morning, traces the hero’s journey and his changing equations with his partner, essayed by Sonam Kapoor. The ‘partner’ is actually his English teacher who shares his vision and dream. The film also features Radhika Apte as Akshay’s wife.

Titled Hu Ba Hu, the song composed and sung by Amit Trivedi also has vocals by Rajiv Sundaresan and Suhas Sawant. It has been penned by Kausar Munir. Akshay plays a character inspired from the real life Menstrual Man of India, Arunachalam Murugananthan. The film shows how he transforms from a naive village man to an innovator who not only provides better and cheaper menstrual hygiene for the women around him but also creates jobs for them. The song’s video shows his journey as Sonam keeps boosting his morale and Akshay slowly realises her concerns for him.

Produced by Twinkle Khanna, the film will face a clash with Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee.

Also, Akshay took to Twitter to share this poster and announce the date and time of the trailer’s release. He wrote, “And it’s on the way! #PadManTrailer out today at 11:00 am. @PadManTheFilm @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki”The film is the biopic of a real-life hero Arunachalam Muruganantham who made a pad-making machine for women to provide them low-cost sanitary napkins.

Akshay Kumar’s ‘Padman’ has been the talk of the town for its unique story. The film helmed by R. Balki is based on social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham. The actor has been releasing the posters of the film which has raised the excitement among the audience.

Akshay, once again, took to Twitter to reveal the new poster of the film. In the caption, he stated that even his wife in the film, played by Radhika Apte, keeps asking him when is the trailer coming out? The caption reads, “My wife also asking when trailer coming?
#PadMan, this Republic Day, 26.01.18.”

‘PadMan’: Interesting facts about the Akshay Kumar starrer
Akshay Kumar has an array of projects lined-up for next year, one of them being the R Balki directorial ‘PadMan’. Being the actor’s first release in 2018, its trailer is highly awaited. Meanwhile, the first look of Akshay in the film has already garnered a lot of attention. Thanks to its highly social message of promoting sanitary hygiene for women,’ Padman’ is already being lauded by many. If all this wasn’t enough, here we give you a rundown of interesting facts about the film that makes it a must watch…

4. Based on Twinkle Khanna’s book

Based on Twinkle Khanna’s book

Twinkle Khanna will kick-start her maiden production with ‘PadMan’. However, this is not the only connection she shares with ‘PadMan’. The movie is actually based on a book she wrote with the title ‘The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad’. The book was, in turn, inspired by a real-life story of a social activist from Tamil Nadu named Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented sanitary napkin machines so that rural women can afford it. Twinkle actually came across the inspiring story in a column that compelled her to write a book which is finally coming out in the form of a movie to spread the message even far and wide.

5. Special appearance by Amitabh Bachchan

Special appearance by Amitabh Bachchan
The film which already stars actors like Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte, will also feature megastar Amitabh Bachchan in ‘PadMan’, thus raising the bar higher. Big B will be seen in a special appearance in the film as himself. Pictures of Akshay and Big B shooting for that particular scene where the two can be seen sharing the stage have already surfaced. The veteran actor can be seen hugging Akshay which is presumably a part of the film. The entire sequence was shot in Delhi and Sonam Kapoor was also involved in the schedule.

6. Akshay Kumar’s first collaboration with R Balki

Akshay Kumar’s first collaboration with R Balki

Akshay has worked with a whole lot of filmmakers in his long career. However, ‘PadMan’ is his first team-up with filmmaker R Balki which now adds a new feather in his cap. Balki is known particularly for two films starring Amitabh Bachchan which was ‘Cheeni Kum’ and ‘Paa’. This will be the director’s fifth venture in films. So it will certainly be exciting to see what this combination can bring to Bollywood.

7. Change in release date from April to Republic Day

Change in release date from April to Republic Day
Initially ‘PadMan’ was touted to release on 13th April 2018. But then the release date was revised to 26th January 2018, which marks the 78th Republic Day of the country. This sudden change in date led many to question whether Akshay’s own film, the magnum opus ‘2.0’ will clash with ‘PadMan’. However, Akshay later denied this alleged clash saying that only one of his two films will release on that day, which now happens to be ‘PadMan’. So it looks like ‘2.0’ will have to wait for its turn.

8. Similarity with ‘Phullu’

Similarity with ‘Phullu’

When the idea of ‘PadMan’ was still doing the rounds, director Abhishek Saxena came up with the drama film ‘Phullu’. The movie also revolved around the concept of sanitary napkins and led many to wonder if the two movies are very similar. However, the ‘Phullu’ filmmaker clarified that his film was about raising awareness about sanitary hygiene whereas ‘PadMan’ is a success story of a man who brought a revolution in the sanitary pad industry. Still, the basic premise of the two movies remains somewhat similar and drew a lot of intrigue from movie buffs and critics.

5 dialogues from Akshay Kumar’s Padman which will stay with you long after you are done watching the trailer

Akshay Kumar‘s Padman trailer is finally here and it is more than just exemplary. We feel so proud of Akshay Kumar for addressing issues that need to be talked and discussed. Since forever, we have aced in brushing aside problems that need immediate attention and menstruation is one such important matter. The actor takes up this responsibility to make sure that people don’t hush it up. In fact, the best thing about the trailer is R Balki has made a considerable effort to not make people cringe because truth be told, Indians are not so brave to call spade a spade. The director made sure that the point is coming across without making anyone wince. But there are also a few dialogues which hit us home more than anything else. We have it right here for you.

#The real superhero

Amitabh Bachchan’s voiceover at the start mentions superheroes and we feel we should start calling Arunachalam Muruganantham that! He is the man Akshay portrays in the film and is a true superhero!

padman

#Mad superhero

You need one idea that can change your life and make sure it is the craziest one because as Akshay says, only mad can become famous!

padman1

#Strong woman equal to strong country

Many historic figures have said this time and again that if a country wants to prosper, it has to make its women stronger. Akshay explains the same in this dialogue. Don’t be a grammar Nazi here…rather understand the meaning!

padman2

#Weaker sex

Women have since generations been called the weaker sex and we are equally responsible for that. A man is trying to give a healthy lifestyle here, but we women just don’t get it! Radhika’s this dialogue sums up the thoughts of majority of the women in India who still make a girl follow insane rules when on periods.

padman3
#No uterus, no opinion

Didn’t we all want to tell off men who tried to give us gyaan on menstruation? How often have we been accused of going through PMS when all we felt was anger on something that someone said? For those men, this is our answer… bleed even for 10 minutes every month and we will see how you react!

padman4

Oh, Akshay Kumar, you are really a brave actor. Nobody could have done a film like that. You are simply awesome. The film releases on January 26 and we are dying to watch it. Can you blame us? The trailer made us go wow!
