Raees has collected decently on the 3rd day at the domestic box office. It collected 14 Crores on the second day. Now the total collections are 62 Crores.
It’s the highest opening of the year despite clash with Kaabil. The film released on non holiday which is not good for release. Raaes’s opening will remain highest for atleast 6 months till Tubelight arrives. No other film could beat it.
Yesterday was not a holiday and Raees did really well according to the situation.
Kaabil on the other hand also performed decently at the box office. It collected 8 Crores on the 3rd day. Now the total collections are 33.5 Crores.
The opening was poor as Hrithik’s last film Mohenjodaro also performed better despite negative response on both trailer and songs. Kaabil was expected to collect in double digits but it underperformed big time.
Kaabil had to collect around the opening figures yesterday and it did. It needs around 80 Crores just to recover costs. Kaabil needs to collect in double digits til Sunday to get a hit verdict, otherwise it may be second failure in a row for Hrithik Roshan, which seems unlikely now.
On the other hand Raees needs to stay consistent and if it does it can collect easily 150 Crores. SRK has again proved that he has a lot of stardom and he is just next to Salman in crowd pulling.
Today both films are expected to do well and show better figures and combined extended weekend of 150 Crore is expected out of both films.
