With this, ‘PadMan’ stands with a first weekend collection of Rs 29.50 crore approx. Akshay took to Instagram to thank wife Twinkle Khanna for backing the film.
The real #PadMan had his wife to thank for his story, so does the reel #PadMan 🙂 Full credit to this gorgeous superwoman for finding, chasing and making this film a reality.

However, ‘PadMan’ failed to beat the first weekend business of Akshay’s previous release ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’. With a whopping amount of over Rs 49 crore, TEPK had taken the box office by storm.
‘PadMan’ is being expected to buck up its collection since a higher footfall is predicted on upcoming Valentine’s Day.
