Raees Advance Booking
The movie of SRK got a boost in Gujarat due to having Gujju flavor in it. But the best advance report has come from Kolkata. The tickets for the morning shows have been sold out already while evening and night shows are getting useful in no time. His Dilwale also opened to high figures in Bengal. However, the available screens are already houseful in the South India, so the theaters’ owners haven’t decided about its allocation yet.
Raess has already sold about 30% of its tickets so far, and it should account to at least Rs. 6 crores by the end of the day. The makers and theaters owners have hiked the ticket prices for the first-day show at some place.
Kaabil Advance Booking
Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil has got better bookings than the expectations. The buzz for the film has increased in the last week or so. Thus, it should get decent advance bookings. The flick has recorded the best in the Mumbai circuit, especially from the evening shows. Hrithik is also popular in the down South and Maharastra, but weaker in the North. So, it will all depend on word of mouth.
Though it is also low in Pune and Bangalore, Kaabil has sold around 15% tickets across India. Only one day is left, and the figures should increase to next level for both the films.
