Rahul Dholakia directorial Raees, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan in the lead roles, is winning hearts of the audience since its release. The film has generated huge hype over its biggest clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil and has now managed to take a solid lead at the Box Office.
While its Wednesday numbers stood at impressive figures of Rs 20.50 crores, Raees continued to show same growth on its second day. Thursday being the Republic Day holiday, Raees witnessed a strong run at the ticket windows and is inching closer to 50 crore mark. Raees has collected Rs 26.25 crore (262.5 Million) nett approx on its second day, taking the two days total to Rs 46.75 crore (465 million) nett approx.
