Expected Opening of SRK’s Much Awaited ‘Raees’
Superstar Shahrukh Khan’s much awaited offering Raees is all set to take box office by storm. Rahul Dholakia’s directorial this movie is buzzing very strongly among audience from last year, as earlier it was scheduled to be released on Eid 2016. But due to delay in production, later it got shifted and now finally releasing on this Wednesday i.e. 25th of January, opposite to another awaited Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan & Yami Gautam.
Last two releases of Shahrukh before Dear Zindagi, Dilwale & Fan both were not came out good as compare to their earlier expectations. This is why, this time he does not want to leave any stone unturned. Promotions of Raees are going in full swing and the actor as well as his fans have big hope with it.
So far everything seems in favor of the movie, also its trailer and music have been liked by most of the audience. But we can’t under estimate the adjacent release Kaabil, this one also has high buzz among audience and releasing with high screen count as well.
Reportedly Raees is releasing on good number of screens i.e. 2600 across the country despite clash. Pre-booking of the movie is been open from Thursday and as per exhibitors, it is getting excellent pre-release response on ticket windows. The movie is positively expected to receive more than 75% of occupancy on its opening day in India, as it is suitable for both single screen as well as multiplex audience.
With such huge pre-release buzz, wide scale promotions, high screen count, excellent advance booking and the enormous stardom of Shahrukh, it won’t be surprising if Raees takes the opening of 16-17 crores on domestic box office. Further performance depends on the reactions of viewers as well as critics.
