Raees has opened exceedingly well at the domestic box office. It collected 21.5 Crores on the first day.
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.
Kaabil on the other hand performed terribly at the box office. It collected 8.5 Crores on the first day.
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 has to pick up today and tomorrow otherwise it won’t cross 100 Crores mark. It needs around 80 Crores just to recover costs. Kaabil needs to collect around 15 Crores today to get a hit verdict, otherwise it may be second failure in a row for Hrithik Roshan.
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.
We predicted 20 Crores for Raees and difference was of 7.5% which is accurate but for Kaabil we predicted 11 Crores but difference was of 33% which is inacurate. We are happy one of our prediction of Raees was right but we would like to appologize for our wrong prediction of Kaabil.
