Before the release of PADMAAVAT, which was stuck in the row thanks to the fringe groups, the industry didn't really come out in support of the film. In fact when a special screening was held before the film release, only the PADMAAVAT team and their close ones attended the event. However now that the film has released and receiving good response, with the fringe groups also calmed down, B-town stepped out at the post release screening in numbers.
