It has been almost half a month since the biggest Republic Day clash this year incepted between Shah Rukh Khan’s “Raees” and Hrithik Roshan’s “Kaabil”. “Raees” started with a bang but lost the steam after wards where as “Kaabil” proved a dark-horse at the box office.
“Raees” had a decent second weekend with business on Sunday being same as Saturday. However, There were a drop on second Monday by more than 50% but was not good enough to mint Rs 1.5 crores. On Tuesday, “Raees” dropped further to Rs 1.25 crores and now stands with a total collections of 140.46 crores.
On the other hand, “Kaabil” had a fantastic weekend with Sunday business going back to double digit figure. However, the collections fell down by more than 50% on second Monday to Rs 2.97 crores. Thankfully, the collections went up again though slightly with Rs 3.05 (Hindi + Tamil + Telgu) 3.05 crores bringing to a total of Rs 124.16 crores.
Though “Kaabil” is doing better in weekdays, it has still long way to take over the overall collections of “Raees”.
