Sanjay Leela Bhansali'Padmaavat is giving a tough competition to Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan at the box office. The Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh starrer period drama is going strong at the ticket window despite PadMan's release across 3,350 screens worldwide on February 9.

Padmaavat, which was initially released across 3,800 plus screens in India, managed to earn Rs 3.20 crore on Monday (February 12) and Rs 3.75 crore on Tuesday (February 13). The figures are being considered decent as Padmaavat's screen count has gone down its third week and is yet to be released in four states -- Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh.

PadMan, on the other hand, which was released across 3,350 screens (2,750 screens in India and 600 screens overseas) worldwide, collected Rs 5.87 crore on Monday and Rs 6.12 crore on Tuesday respectively, in its first week.

In comparison, Padmaavat had also fared much better at the domestic box office in the first and second week.

Padmaavat has undoubtedly floored the moviegoers with its grandeur and earned a total of Rs 260.75 crore at the box office till date. PadMan, on the other hand, has managed to cross the coveted Rs 50 crore mark in just five days of its release and has earned Rs 52.04 crore so far.

Padmaavat has been outperforming despite no screenings in many parts of the country thanks to the threats issued by a fringe group, while PadMan is struggling to score more at the box office even when it had managed to acquire maximum screens across the country, during its release.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share Padmaavat and PadMan's day-wise box office collections. He wrote, "#Padmaavat is UNSTOPPABLE.. [Week 3] Fri 3.50 cr, Sat 6.30 cr, Sun 8 cr, Mon 3.20 cr, Tue 3.75 cr. Total: ₹ 260.75 cr. India biz."

"#PadMan crosses ₹ 50 cr mark... Fri 10.26 cr, Sat 13.68 cr, Sun 16.11 cr, Mon 5.87 cr, Tue 6.12 cr. Total: ₹ 52.04 cr. India biz," Taran added.

Going by the numbers, one can easily say that Padmaavat has emerged as the clear winner in the box office battle with PadMan, even though both films were privileged enough to have a solo release in theatres.
