Kaabil 2nd / 3rd Day Box Office Collection 2 / 3 Days Kabil 1st Thursday / Friday Report: Hrithik Roshan’s movie Kaabil (Kabil) is facing a tough competition from Shahrukh Khan’s latest film Raees (Raes). The latest venture will again affect the Kaabil box office collection second day as it restricted Kaabil opening collections to a large extent.
It is further limiting the Kaabil 2nd day collection on a national holiday for Republic Day 2017 celebrations. Despite the tough competition, the movie witnessed growth on the day 2 of its release. It has gained a good boost starting from the Morning shows itself as compared to its business yesterday. Let’s check out the Kaabil second day collection update.
Kaabil 2nd Day Box Office Collection
The movie started the second day with 55% occupancy in the morning shows on an average. The jump can be credited to the fact that today is a national holiday. Also, the boost in the business is reported from the cities which were earlier affected by the clash.
The Hrithik and Yami starrer was supposed to do attract more people in Maharashtra and South circuit if it didn’t happen to be a clash. But, it was the single release and thus got affected by Raees yesterday. Else, Kaabil collections would have been at least double. As of now, the holiday advantage and word of mouth are making the movie possible to survive and grow at the same time.
In the ideal state, Kaabil Thursday collection should get boost up by at least 60% to tackle Shahrukh’s Raees. But, with a good word of mouth, it should go beyond that. Speaking of the some of the places, the movie has grown by 5 times as compared to yesterday’s occupancy. It will be interesting to compare Kaabil box office collection 2nd day vs Raees second day collections.
In the past too, we saw that sometimes the word of mouth factor comes into play quite early at the time of clash. Thus, it has become an interesting box office battle to see around. The national holiday factor has made the encounter even more interesting to watch.
Today, the movie should earn more than double of what it did on its Wednesday (opening collections). So, the 2nd day collection of Kaabil should be around Rs. 15 crores today. The target isn’t that much tough and looks achievable. It is raining at some places, but that shouldn’t affect the business. The star power will attract the audiences.

The interesting part of the battle will remain to be seen performing both the movies in the major cities. It is because they are potential markets where the films can play better. Let’s see who turns out to be the winner today. Counting the advance bookings and better stardom of Shahrukh, Raees would win eventually.
But, the main fight is for lifetime collections. Critics and trade analysts are expecting Kaabil (review) to outrun Raees in the long run at the worldwide box office. Being a love story and revenge drama, the film is attracting more of city audience than the single screens.
Hrithik’s presence and holiday advantage should mint a good moolah for the film. It all goes well, then word of mouth will boost Kaabil collection on 2nd day evening and night shows.
