Deepika Padukone, who was threatened with beheading over her latest film Padmaavat, is "happy and proud" as the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial has raked in Rs 56 crore (nearly $9 million) net in India in three days.

Padmaavat registered Rs 5 crore net on Wednesday (paid previews), Rs 19 crore net on opening day on Thursday and Rs 32 crore net on Friday, according to producers Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

Deepika, who has delivered blockbusters like Om Shanti Om, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Piku, tweeted her gratitude on Saturday.

Earlier, Deepika had said that she is not someone who has ever been excited so much about box office numbers but "I have to say that this time I am. I think it's going to be earth-shattering."

Based on 16th century poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's Padmavat, the film also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
