Actress Deepika Padukone, who was threatened with beheading over her latest film "Padmaavat", is happy and proud as the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial has raked in Rs 56 crore (nearly $9 million) net in India in three days.

"Padmaavat" registered Rs 5 crore net on Wednesday (paid previews), Rs 19 crore net on opening day on Thursday and Rs 32 crore net on Friday, according to producers Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

"I cannot even begin to express how happy and proud this makes me feel! Thank you for all the love," Deepika, who has delivered blockbusters like "Om Shanti Om", "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", "Chennai Express", "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela" and "Piku", tweeted on Saturday.

Trade analyst Komal Nahta found the figures to be "stupendous considering that the film has not opened in 35per cent of India". 

"The film is destined to be a big hit. If normalcy returns soon in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, the film can cross Rs 300 crore in India. If the film doesn't release in the three or four states where it is banned, it will remain at Rs 240 crore or Rs 250 crore," he added.

Earlier, Deepika had said that she is not someone who has ever been excited so much about box office numbers but "I have to say that this time I am. I think it's going to be earth-shattering".

The magnum opus, based on 16th-century poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's "Padmaavat", also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor

The film, produced by Sudhanshu Vats, Ajit Andhare and Bhansali, released on Thursday, ahead of Republic Day, amid protests from the Shri Rajput Karni Sena, which claims the movie distorts facts.

Andhare tweeted: "'Padmaavat' overseas beats 'Tiger Zinda Hai' and 'Dangal' in the US, New Zealand and Germany ... beats 'Baahubali' in Australia. Beats in million of hearts across the world, when will it beat in Gujarat?"

Talking about the mixed reviews, trade analyst Atul Mohan told IANS: "Reviewers should keep in mind the difficulties that Sanjay Leela Bhansali went through while making the film. Under such tremendous pressure, he made the film, so critics should give it to him for that. However, I think common people would watch the film at least once, if not for anything else, at least for the visual experience."

"Having said that, I am afraid if the repeat viewing is even happening or not because of its length. The business of a film also grows due to repeat viewing on weekdays."

According to Mohan, Sunday will be a big day. 

"I think by Sunday afternoon, 'Padmaavat' will touch Rs 100 crore. I think from Monday onwards, if every day it gets steady business between Rs 15-20 crore, then by next week it will easily cross Rs 180 crore."

But atleast wt i ve remined tht u were doing overacting

Dp cant act wt ranveer did awesome job...n also sahihd look hot

This movie and Bhansali and Deepika went through soon much! Even the movie being released is a big thing!
And yes, Agree Kat and her PR has gone crazy. What would an item girl know about carrying a film under such adverse circumstances!

Good joke, Deepika. Hahaha

With a budget of 250 crores, where is the success?

150cr, not 250 ok!!

PV and all the trade analysts have mentioned that the budget is 250 crores.

Success?? Lol

my fighter Deepu single handedly taking on Karni Sena.. I am happy that the film has released.. whether it is successful or not is a diff matter.. SLB should take a vacation..

Critics have hailed ranveer's performance bt as an audience, i cudnt connect 2 his acting. Looked very superficial. Shahid dnt kbw y was even selected for this role. I think only dp suited the role as beautiful n brave queen. Also liked aditi in the movie

Really! Is it a success even before it breaks even it needs 200 cr to break even!! lol

Movie is a hi majorly due to Queen DP. Who ever says otherwise is jelaous

Dear kat PR you are posting the same comment on every post 10 times. Can u plz post a single paid review on DP acting? which critics panned her or gave her negative review? coz i can post 100 positive reviews. Admit the fact DP can give solo hit. Name RS n Shaid hit films also which of their movie got the biggest opening? i will be waiting. You are simply jealous, zero without salman, cant gives a solo hit, no acting skills, zero dancing, wooden face, no critics ever praised u and u need big heroes to give a hit. PV POST THIS PLZ. AND ALSO POST EVERY DP FAN COMMNET. U ARE IGNORING BUT POSTING KAT PR COMMENT

I read the views of Asha Parekh, Waheeda Rehman and Hema Malini earlier who were all full of praise about Deepika Padukone's acting and how good the movie is...So it makes sense its a good movie worth watching. Don't argue unnecessarily about Deepika...most of her movies are good.

Worst actress according to Critics ....Even Aditi Rao Hydari is getting more praise than her....Lmao

Lol no she isn't. Deepika's hardly got a negative review. Critics wanted to see more of her in the film. That's how good she was.

Yeah kat is the worst actress accordig to crtics. Even harsahi got more praise then her. Critics calling DP the best actress of this gneration. lol
arent you tired of posting lies . You are doing it from last 3 das, 10 comments on every post
truth should bposted

Every Critic has been panning her terrible performance......Wake up delusional dptards

Every critic has been praising her fabulous performance. Wakeup delusional kat fans
post pv plz
p.s post all those critcs names with comments plz

The film hasnt even recover its budget and she is dancing fake personality it will mac be average

Jealous kat fans cant digest DP success and her getting praise for her acting. They are spreading lies that critics bashed her. its a hit due to DP starpower which kat dont have. RS and shahid are flops and dont have that power

KAT PR IS HERE. ITS FUNNY HOW ONE PERSON IS POSTING 10 COMMENTS ON EVERY DP POST TRYING HARD TO SAY CRITICS PANNED HER NITS COZ OF RS. LOL POST ONE CRITICS NAME WHO BASHED HER ACTING. NOT A SINGLE CRTICIS GIVES A NEGATIVE REVIEW ABOUT HER.POST PLZ

None of the critics said that she wa bad! Why do people make up stuff like this and state like its real.

Its KAT over active PR and some KR fans. Who loves to imagine things. They are jealous coz of DP success. They want it to be a flop and DP getting bad reviews. But it didnt happened so they are spreading lies .

Goodness so many people hate her. Ranveer was definitely the star of the movie, but I would say her portrayal was more nuanced and real.

Congrats DP.. for standing up to goons and defending your film and the director SLB.. after all this drama I'm happy that your film was released..

Its bc of sahihd n ranveer not bc of dp overacting

Its coz of DP awesome acting. lol rs and shahid last movies r flop.

Inflated numbers being shared by paid mafia of Bollywood.

Grandpa Khans are behind paid mafia, why would they promote SLB's film?

Karni Sena deserves vereist for making this film a hit NOT Deepika, who can't act and has received negative reviews.....Her list of terrible acting continues

Dp can act and received only positive review. Her list of hits and awesome acting continues. u posting same comments and trying way too hard. go and see a doc
post the truth

Only thing notable in this film is Ranveer's performance..... Everything about this film has been panned with Critics giving negative reviews from Deepika's terrible acting to Shahid's wooden/robotic walk acting and terrible story.......Another Judwaa 2....Well done Indian public

Ll DP ct was brilliant. not a single bad review on a her acting.

Uthe film is hit because of the drama and NOT because of you Deepika: Reality Check

Reality check its coz of DP. keep burning

Even Sonam has a solo hit...When will Deepika give a solo hit? This film is all about Ranveer

What sonam solo hit? neerja? its coz of the neerja and emotions. not sonam. Dp solo hits Piku, now padmavati,.

DP already gave hers in Cocktail.. try to get Sonam to that role..

Hit film but Deepika's performance is the worst according to Critics.....Ranveer is getting all the praises

DP performance is the best according to critics. not a single bad comment on her acting. she is getting all the praise. but jealous kat n her PR trying hard lol
dont be biasedn post

Learn some acting Deepika....Critics have only negative things to say about your wooden and terrible performance.....

Lol she us not even in half of the movie......It's laughable hers was the smallest role.....And Critics panned it

Keep deceiving yourself, deepika

keep deceiving yourself katrina.

No solo hit in her career....Always riding on hero's shoulders

Thats kat not DP. Dp solo hit are piku n now padamvati. whats kat solo hit?

Hi jealous kat. whatever makes u feel better.

Piku is a solo hit and padmavati is a solo hit. RS n shahid are not big heroes. You have mistaken DP as kat. who has no solo hits. and ride on hero shoulders.
truth should b posted

Haters RIP, Congratulations Super Womer Star DP, making women feel so proud !!!

Hail the queen

Well done. Keep it up

Fake numbers. Maybe she learnt it from Aamir Khan!

Prove that numbers r fake. Also DP is not giving the numbers.

Prove that numbers are fake? keep burning KAT PR.

So whitewashed in this picture

Only actor to give back to back hits. Can't wait for Sapna already YAY!!

Hahaha

So happy for her. She deserves all the adulation and success.

DP proved that she is a queen and can give a hit without big heroes.

DP starpower is obvious at the box office. She can drag ppl to the cinema.

What starpower? Her stardom couldn't save Padmavat and XXX from being a flop.

STARPOWER TO GET 1 9 CRS OF OPENING WITHOUT BIG HERO. XXX IS NOT A BW FILM. PADMAVATI MAKE 100 CRS . ITS HER STARPOWER.
TRUTH SHOULD B POSTED

STARPOWER TO GET 1 9 CRS OF OPENING WITHOUT BIG HERO. XXX IS NOT A BW FILM. PADMAVATI MAKE 100 CRS . ITS HER STARPOWER.
