PadMan 1st Day Box Office Collection: Akshay Kumar's Padman collected approx 10.26 crores on its opening day. The film had a slow start in the morning shows but picked up the pace in the evening shows.
This was always expected as the film had limited appeal and there was no hit music to support. PadMan was more of a niche film which will mainly appeal to the female audience. Also, the subject is considered taboo in India which is evident from the opening in mass areas. It is one of the lowest openers for Akshay Kumar in masses.
Overall the opening day number is fair and now all eyes are on the trend over the weekend. No doubt it will grow on Saturday but it will be the Sunday growth which will give us a clear picture.
