RAEES Shah Rukh Khan dominates KAABIL Hrithik Roshan!
The much awaited box-office battle between FilmKraft’s Hrithik Roshan, Ronit Roy and Yami Gautam starrer KAABIL and Red Chillies Entertainments’ Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin and Mahira starrer RAEES, turned out to be heavily in favour of the latter, on the opening day. As per the numbers while RAEES netted around 20 crore, KAABIL could muster just around 10 crore.
RAEES AND KAABIL
However, there was a turnaround in the fortunes of KAABIL on the second day, as Republic day holiday saw the film putting a much improved show, more so at the single screens. RAAES too improved it’s collections, but as it was already at a high level, the pick up was not substantial. As per rough early estimations the second day has seen KAABIL notching up in excess of 17 crore while RAEES went past 26 crore.
The reports from the overseas are also heavily in favour of RAEES. On the first day RAEES grossed £127,000 from UK and $350,000 from the US, despite a mid-week release.
