Raees has taken a huge start at box office on opening Wednesday (1st day) despite having a clash with Kaabil. Film open to bumper collection and showed big growth through the day. Film also benefitted from large screen sharing in around 3000 and hence put up a big total on day one. Film is all set to go berserk on Republic Day Holiday that is today.
Raees has collected an approx 20.4 crore nett on day one. Film started the day with occupancy of 60% and ended the day with occupancy of 80%+. Film is fantastic in multiplexes but it is riot in single screens. Smiles are back big time for exhibitors of single screens. Even at many single screens film did better business than Dangal.
Film is enjoying 5 day extended weekend. Thursday will be huge and should go to 25 crore nett mark or may be more also. It is the 1st Friday and 1st Monday which will decide the fate of the film.
