It’s a huge breakthrough for the Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan with his last venture Raees has officially entered the prestigious 100 crore club. It is his seventh movie to get the honour of highest grossing film of over Rs. 100 cr. SRK already tastes the success of the film as it is from his own production and finished off the first weekend box office with pretty solid numbers.
On the opening day of the second weekend, Raees saw a huge drop in collection with the early trade estimates fall in the range of 7.5-8 cr, based on advance booking and theatre occupancy. The film finishes off its first weekend with Rs. 93.24 cr and going by the early trade estimates, the film made Rs. 100 cr in ease, thus joining the prestigious 100 crore club.
After a slight dip earlier last week, the film made a whopping Rs 17.8 cr on Sunday and sets a record of highest ever weekend collection in January. The film even holds the highest ever first weekend collection with two or more releases.
Raees has Pakistani actress Mahira Khan as SRK’s love interest and Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing cop who gives sleepless nights to Shah Rukh Khan. Sunny Leone has done a special item song, the remix of superhit ‘Laila Main Laila’ in the film. The film continues to rule the box office collecting solid number and have to wait and watch its performance in the coming days.
