Effect of Postponing
In any other scenario postponing a film risks losing its momentum of interest and publicity. But the vigor of publicity has rocketed during the additional days by introducing PadMan Challenge. Where the glitterati of Bollywood has been sharing their pictures holding a Pad.
All in all the risk is ripping it’s benefit as there is no other film clashing on box office now. Padmaavat still might be a competition as it still occupies a good number of screens.
Word of Mouth
The Maiden film of Mrs. FunnyBones productions PadMan, is a basically a content driven film. Looking at the business trends of such films, it depends on word of mouth.

All of them had a decent start initially and enticed the audiences slowly through good content and word of mouth. In fact Akshay Kumar and KriArj Entertainment might hit an a hat-trick with PadMan. As their previous collaborations Rustom and Toilet – Ek Prem Katha have performed quite well.
According to reports the film might gross If Word of Mouth is
- Good – 50-55 crore in First Weekend
- Mixed – 40-45 Crore in First Weekend
- Bad – 35-38 Crore in First Weekend
With a budget of 90 Crore (70 Production cost + 20 Prints & Advertising Cost), the film would surely make it’s break even point.
