Raees vs Kaabi l box-office collection Week 1: SRK crosses Rs 100cr mark, Hrithik not yet
The first film to win the box-office race…is Raees. The Shah Rukh Khan-starrer gangster drama crossed the Rs 100-crore mark on January 30 while Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam’s film Kaabil is still behind.
As such, Kaabil will indeed take a some time to catch up with Raees. Kaabil producer Rakesh Roshan earlier expressed his disappointment about the partial treatment from exhibitors.
However, Kaabil is releasing in Pakistan a week before Raees is gracing the screens in that country.
Here is the day-to-day breakdown of Raees box-office collection:
Day 1 – Wednesday (Jan 25) – Rs 20.42 crore
Day 2 – Thursday (Jan 26) – Rs 26.30 crore
Day 3 – Friday (Jan 27) – Rs 13.11 crore
Day 4 – Saturday (Jan 28) – Rs 15.61 crore
Day 5 – Sunday (Jan 29) – Rs 17.80 crore
Day 6 – Monday (Jan 30) – Rs 12.90 crore
Total six-day box-office collection of Raees: Rs 106.14 crore
Day 1 – Wednesday (Jan 25) – Rs 10.43 crore
Day 2 – Thursday (Jan 26) – Rs 18.67 crore
Day 3 – Friday (Jan 27) – Rs 9.77 crore
Day 4 – Saturday (Jan 28) – Rs 13.54 crore
Day 5 – Sunday (Jan 29) – Rs 15.05 crore
Day 6 – Monday (Jan 30) – Rs 12 crore
Total six-day box-office collection of Kaabil: Rs 79.64 crore
Raees, starring Shah Rukh Khan, is director Rahul Dholakia’s reimagining of ’80s Gujarat where a bootlegger, played by SRK, wants to expand his criminal empire against all odds. The only thorn in his path is an honest cop Majmudar, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
While the performances of Shah Rukh and Nawaz have been praised, Pakistani actor Mahira Khan has failed to charm the audiences and critics alike.
Meanwhile, Kaabil, the underdog in the competition, stars Hrithik Roshan as a blind man who goes out to avenge his wife who gets raped by political goons.
Kaabil is Shootout at Wadala, Musafir and Kaante director Sanjay Gupta’s first collaboration with Hrithik Roshan.
