Pad Man has witnessed good numbers on day one at the box-office. Given the controlled budget and subject, which could be deemed controversial for conservative family audiences, a collection of Rs. 10.26 crore nett has to be deemed a favorable start. Akshay Kumar‘s star-power is almost entirely singlehandedly responsible for the opening-day collection, once again showing the importance of a superstar landing his weight to such topics.

Pad Man has opened lower that all of Akshay’s recent releases, including Airlift, Rustom, Housefull 3, Jolly LLB 2, and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, but again, it was expected considering the offbeat subject. But Akshay’s name, the commercially entertaining way in which the message has been narrated, and the good word-of-mouth and reviews should suffice in helping the film take sizeable jumps over the weekend.
|Film||Day One in Nett (INR)|
|Singh is Bliing||20.67 crore|
|Housefull 3||15.21 crore|
|Rowdy Rathore||15.01 crore|
|Housefull 2||14.0 crore|
|Jolly LLB 2||13.20 crore|
|Toilet: Ek Prem Katha||13.10 crore|
|Gabbar is Back||13.05 crore|
|Tees Maar Khan||12.75 crore|
|Pad Man||10.26 crore|

The opening of Pad Man is along expected lines, and good growth on Saturday and Sunday should set the film on course for a conducive run at the box-office. The business for the morning shows today has already picked up, so the film is certainly spreading its wings and finding favor with the family audiences.
