With Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees doing amazingly well at the box office, it seems like Raees is still ahead of Kaabil. The film is doing extremely well and is strongly moving ahead in the box office game.

Despite being compared with Hrithik’s Kaabil, the film is highly appreciated by the film critics and the audience is going gaga about it. And as far as the box office figures are concerned, Raees is not only ruling domestically but overseas as well.

In its 5-day long weekend, the movie did a business of Rs 93.24 crore and Raees will soon enter the 100 crore club in a day or two. This will be SRK’s 7th film to enter the 100-crore club and with its first-day earnings, it is also amongst his top 5 earner films.

Here’s a detailed break-up of Raees box office collection in Week 1:

  • Wednesday: 20.42 crore
  • Thursday: 26.30 crore
  • Friday: 13.11 crore
  • Saturday: 15.61 crore
