Raees vs Kaabil 1st Day Box Office Collection
The Sanjay Gupta directed actioner Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam releases today in both the domestic as well as international markets. The film whose critic reviews have been positive across the board is expected to open on a good note despite the fact that faces competition from yet another release in the form of the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees.
The early reports of the first Box Office clash of 2017 Raees and Kaabil are out and it seems like the former has taken an edge over the other one. Viewers flocked to cinemas to watch Shah Rukh Khan’s film but the response to Hrithik Roshan’s offering has been comparatively cold. A major reason behind this is the stardom of King Khan, which cannot be questioned. The early numbers coming from big cities will definitely bring a sigh of relief to the makers of Raees.
On the other hand, Kaabil has been allotted around 2400 screens and has opened to an average occupancy of 25 to 30% which clearly indicates the clash effect. It goes without saying that Raees will surpass Kaabil by a margin with its day one collection by banking Rs. 20 to 25 crore plus which is massive for a working day. Meanwhile, Kaabil, as per early trend reports, will struggle to mint a double digit box office collection.
Today being Republic Day aka a national holiday, both the films will mint strong, with Raees in the lead rather obviously.
