SRK’s gigantic popularity is showing huge signs for Raees. Raees has opened with around 60% in morning shows. This is a great percentage which shows that fans are highly interested and excited to watch the film. Raees has got a wider releases than Kaabil and multiplexes are giving it a huge boost. Moreover, evening shows will be already going house-full as a big Republic Day weekend is ahead and advanced bookings for Raees were huge.
Coming to Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil, the film has opened with decent 25% fill rate in morning shows. Audience is flocking more to Raees but evening shows might see a good growth for Kaabil as the extended weekend is here. Kaabil has lesser screen count than Raees so it will have to wait till evening and good reviews and word of mouth.
