Winning the hearts of critics and masses alike, Deepika-Ranveer starrer Ram-leela has started on an impressive note. The movie that has been made on a budget of approx Rs. 35 cr, has amassed over Rs. 15 crore on Friday.

"Ram Leela Fri Rs. 15.25 cr and counting. Some cinemas were closed and shows at few cinemas were disturbed and suspended due to protests," tweets trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

Fighting all odds, the Bhansali's latest offering has collected a good number, owing to the positive word of mouth.

"Point to be noted is that the advance booking for Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela was affected due to the legal issues and uncertainty over its release. Despite that, the opening has been very good, while the current bookings are witnessing ample footfalls to ensure a strong total. The business on Saturday and Sunday is only expected to get bigger, since the word of mouth and reviews have been marvelous," writes Adarsh for Bollywood Hungama.
