The Shah Rukh Khan crime thriller called Raees crossed the 90 crore mark on its 1st Sunday at the box office. The crime action thriller has enjoyed a very good buzz in the media and is able to rake in approx 18 crores yesterday and now stands with a total of 93.44 crores. With this film is closing to the 100 crore club, which makes a huge signal of a big bang from the makers, Raees is all set to enter the 100 crore club by today at the domestic market.
The film is directed by Rahul Dholakia, the film also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan in pivotal roles. On the other side we have Kaabil, which is also seen heading on a decent note for sure. Till then Kaabil has to keep scoring well in every over (i.e. every day) and not lose momentum at all. There would be occasional boundaries too (over the next weekend) and all it has to do is hang on (by means of continued publicity and being in news for all the positive reasons). That would be essential for the film to eventually score a century.
This is certainly a T20 cricket scenario for the film since it has to score primarily in the first 17 over available for it read full 17 days, right from mid-week release of Wednesday till the third Thursday before another team enters the arena. This would be the date 10th February when there would be three way divisions of screens between Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan starrers.
