Shah Rukh Khan starrer gets an impressive opening collection. The early trends’ reports of Raees 1st day collection points in the direction of the movie collecting around Rs. 21 crores in India.

Raees 1st Day Box Office Collection
The movie opened with a bang on its release date. The average occupancy for the morning shows was around 60 percent, and the credit goes to the circuits like Mumbai, Rajasthan, Gujarat which opened very well. Kolkata set the West Bengal BO on fire with the average occupancy being 80% for the state. The film picked up regarding occupancy during the noon and evening shows. And the average rose up to 70%.
The real rise for the flick came in during the late evening and night shows when the next day holiday advantage came into the frame which gave Rates collections a huge boost.
In many regions, the film witnessed houseful shows especially in the evening and night shows. It wasn’t limited just to the single screens, but multiplexes also registered more than decent occupancies. Being massy, it worked for the movie and makers. Also, it happened due to the presence of Shahrukh Khan, the King Khan who remains one of the top 3 biggest crowd pullers of the Bollywood.
Though SRK has arrived here after one underperformer Dilwale and one flop film Fan once again, he got one of the highest openings of all times.

Due to the unpopular genre and having the taste of Gujarat in the movie, Raees (review) couldn’t get its best in the North India. It was recorded average in East Punjab while it was decent in Delhi and UP regions, but could have been better. The Raees movie has the opportunity to register an opening record in West Bengal due to unbelievable response.
It is because it garnered better occupancy than what Salman Khan’s Sultan and Aamir Khan’s Dangal couldn’t get in BeThengal. Not only this, the occupancy of Raees was registered better than the two at many places. This can be noted down as an incredible achievement because it is facing a clash w ith Hrithik and Yami starrer Kaabil.
A lot has already been said about the boxoffice clash of Raees vs Kaabil. Some people are of the opinion that Rees will fare much better than Kaabil in the first weekend, but it will be Kaabil (Kabil) which will fare better in the long run. Just sticking to the day 1, the clash has turned out to be one-sided. Thus, it is pretty much clear that Raees box office collection 1st day will be double that of Hrithik’s Kaabil opening day collection.
Last year too, Hrithik’s Mohenjo Daro clashed with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom. Though Mohenjo Daro didn’t fare too well, in the long run, it did open to Rs. 9 cr despite the negativity. It all depends on the stardom. The three Khans, Aamir, Salman, and Shahrukh, have better fan following than any other actor in the industry.
The 1st day collection of Raees will be the 3rd highest for SRK. The top two openers for Shahrukh Khan are Happy New Year and Chennai Express. The opening of the latest release hs crossed the figures of Dilwale and Fan. Thus, the business will be higher than the past two movies. Also, the Raees Collection of first day will be the highest ever recorded in the month of January.
It has the opportunity to break the record of Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath. But, SRK starrer won’t be able to make the highest single day record because Christmas 2016 release Dangal made whopping Rs. 32 crores on January 1.
The advance bookings for 2nd day, tomorrow are already at par level being a national holiday of Republic Day of India. Raees movie collection will undoubtedly rise to significantly. But the interesting thing to note down will be the gap between the collections of both the movie at the end of the second day. According to expectations, Kaabil will also witness some boost on 1st Thursday.
