This weekend at USA box-office, entertaining movies saw good collection. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama “Padmaavat” continued its dream run at North American box-office. The film is now all set to break the record of Aaamir Khan’s “PK” in Noth America.
By end of its second weekend, the film grossed whopping $9,012,569 (cumulative gross).
“Padmaavaat” is now all-time fourth biggest Indian movie at North American box-office after “Baahubali 2” ($20 million), “Dangal” ($12.5 million), “PK” ($10.58 million).
