Raees has collected Rs. 6 crore* more on Tuesday. Currently standing at Rs. 105.74 crore*, the film has now entered the 100 crore club.
Given the kind of hype that the film was enjoying prior to release and also with the way it opened and then jumped further on the Republic Day holiday, one would have expected a better hold during the weekdays. The footfalls though are not scaling up to the level that the film deserves and it now boils down to rest of the weekdays staying consistent.
Fortunately for the film the coming weekend is open and that would allow it to bring on more moolah. There won’t be any new competition per se and hence it is going to be a tight run with Kaabil in the coming week.
It has to be seen how the film progresses in order to go past the lifetime total of Dilwale [Rs. 148 crore].
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
