Those who invested in Raees are indeed set to be ‘raees’. The film is raking in very good moolah, what with footfalls seeing further increment on the second day. Rs. 26.30 crore more came in as a result of which the overall collections are Rs. 46.72 crore.
Of course the first two in the list went past the Rs. 200 crore mark while the third too made over Rs. 150 crore despite not finding acceptance from the audience. While the trends clearly suggest that Raees would definitely go past the Rs. 150 crore mark, it would be interesting to see if Rs. 200 crore is a possibility as well.
After Dangal, it is heartening to see audiences step into theatres all over again with Raees continuing to demonstrate very good hold over the numbers. A ‘masala’ film which shows Shah Rukh Khan in an entirely different avtar almost two decades after Ram Jaane (where he played a gangster too who played to the gallery), Raees has been a new experience for current generation which has otherwise seen in more in films like Chennai Express, Happy New Year and Dilwale.
