IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX) and Viacom18 Motion Pictures today announced that Padmaavat set a new opening weekend record for IMAX in India, grossing approximately $461,000 across 12 IMAX® theatres for a stellar $38,400 per-screen average. Directed by celebrated filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmaavat is the first Indian local-language title released globally in the IMAX® 3D format.

Padmaavat was also distributed to an additional 42 IMAX theatres in 10 markets outside of India including North America, Australia, the Middle East, Africa and the UK. Globally, the film grossed $1.3 million across a total of 54 IMAX theatres in its opening weekend run for a $24,000 per-screen average. Padmaavat marks the fourth Indian local-language production to be released in IMAX globally.

The film is based on the Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic poem Padmavat. Starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, the film showcases the valor of Rani Padmavati, Maharawal Ratan Singh and the famed Rajput ethos of honor, bravery and sacrifice.
