Shah Rukh Khan’s Raaes has a lead of Rs 40 crore over Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil at the end of the 2nd weekend at the domestic box office. After comprehensively beating Kaabil over the first extended weekend, Kaabil finally managed to catch upto Raees on Friday and surpassed the collections of the film on Saturday and Sunday.
Raees has collected close to 12 crore in the second weekend, while Kaabil has collected Rs 13 crore.
We would also like to mention here that trade-analyst Komal Nahta in Film Information has quoted the first extended week (9 days) of Kaabil (Hindi) at Rs 70.05 crore and Raees at 108.30 crore, which is a little lower than our figures for both films in the first 9 days.
As far as the lifetime business of the two films is concerned, Kaabil is likely to finish closer to the 100 crore mark, while Raees will finish in the 135 crore range.
