Raid enjoyed a good second weekend at the Box Office as 15 crore* more came in. With this the film has now reached 79 crore* and in the process the lifetime total of Ajay Devgn’s two films have been surpassed. Whereas Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is still running well at the box office.
While Drishyam [77 crore] was in the same zone and gathered this moolah over a period of time, Baadshaho [78 crore] was a much more commercial affair and still Raid has managed to go past it.
The film has held on well with mass as well as class audiences are giving it a dekko at centers where it was expected to do well. Even though Hichki is doing decent business as well in its first weekend, Raid is holding on screens which shows that the film has been accepted. As a matter of fact if not for Hichki, the film could well have gathered 4-5 crore more already.
Another film which is still bringing in audiences is Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. The film has already gathered 105 crore* and is still left with some steam. A lifetime total of 107-108 crore is for the taking here and that would take it past other comic entertainers like Son of Sardaar [105 crore] and Golmaal 3 [106 crore]. It would be quite challenging though for the film to go past Housefull 3 [109 crore], though that was a much bigger film and a truly starry affair.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
