When a film is gearing up for release there are few reasons why it garners heavy openings. Most of the times, it has to do with the star power and the craze for them. And then there are those times when the controversy quotient attracts the crowds to the theatres.
The Bollywood flick Rani Padmavathi featuring motormouth Ranveer Singh and the burgundy eyed beauty Deepika Padukone has been creating a huge hype. The trade analysts have mentioned that the openings would be huge given the controversy that ensued.
It is known that director Sanjay Bhansali was even manhandled during the shooting of this movie by few right wing activists. Anyhow, if content is good it would beat his earlier venture Bajirao Mastani. We have to see if it can beat the magnum opus Baahubali though.
