The D-day is finally here! Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil have finally released today and man, this much-awaited box office war just got real. Oh yes, Raees and Kaabil have finally clashed at the BO and the game begins. While Raees is already ahead in the advance booking sales, Kaabil is struggling, lagging behind! Trade figures for the advance booking sales are out and they spell doom for Kaabil. While SRK’s film has garnered over Rs 11.50 crores, Hrthik’s revenge drama has sold tickets worth only a paltry Rs 3 cr.
But while SRK’s numbers might look huge compared with Kaabil, one can’t compare the same with Salman Khan or Aamir khan’s opening numbers. Salman Khan’s films Sultan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo had collected about 21 cr and 15 cr in advance booking sales. Dangal collected massive 21 crores. So, if Raees does not have a decent word of mouth, the collections may go downhill for this much awaited SRK film. Kaabil on the other hand, if the public reviews are good, may work well at the box office. Now, lets see what’s in store for these films.
Stay tuned for more box office updates on both movies.
