Ajay Devgn has taken the box office in his charge with his latest film Raid. The movie had witnessed a slow start in morning shows with 20% occupancy but as the day progressed, audience turned up with strong footfalls for its shows.
Raid has collected 10.04 crore on its 1st day. This is an impressive start as the film has a topic and treatment which is not a mass appeal yet the crowd is showing a positive response. Raid’s occupancy for the entire day on an average was around 50-60%.
Raid has got 3400 screens which is more than enough for this genre. Ajay Devgn has a great following and command and that’s why the earnings are good. Reviews for Raid are fairly good so the recommendation is high for this Raj Kumar Gupta directorial.
Saturday and Sunday will be witnessing an elegant growth and Raid can mint 35+ crore in its opening weekend. It also has a controlled budget so recovery is not a problem.
Raid doesn’t have any competition as new releases are not there from Bollywood and holdover ones are not a threat to it. Raid also stars Saurabh Shukla and Ileana D’Cruz.
