Shah Rukh Khan’s film Raees created such a huge stir at box office in January that it is currently the Highest Grosser of 2017 with 139 crore nett. collections. The interesting thing is that it managed to collect these collections despite having clashed with another big release, i.e. Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
The gross earnings of Raees in India are 194 crore. Now, Shah Rukh has a global fan following so his movies have a massive demand in international markets too, especially in Middle East Countries and Europe. In international circuits, this film had brought around 95 crore which is a huge chunk of money.
In total, SRK’s Raees has grossed around 290 crore worldwide. The numbers speak the kind of response this film has received from the audience. Raees just fell short of 10 crore otherwise, it could have touched the 300 crore mark globally.
Shah Rukh also has Imtiaz Ali’s film schedule to release in August. Raees also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan and it is directed by Rahul Dholakia.
