With just 10 days left for the release of Shah Rukh Khan‘s most awaited movie Raees, the excitement of his fans is at the peak. Shah Rukh is under a lot of pressure as his last three movies haven’t bee able to perform as per expectations. In fact, his last two releases, FAN and Dear Zindagi were not even able to touch 100 Crore mark. As always the expectations are huge from SRK and the actor needs to deliver to this time around. Shah Rukh is a full-fledged massy role in something his fans have been waiting for a long time. Raees has created good buzz on social media. The trailer of the movie has received tremendous response. The biggest question is however remains, will Shah Rukh Khan make it big at Box Office? Let’s find out with our Raees Box Office prediction.
Raees Box Office Prediction: Positives And Negatives
1) Shah Rukh Khan in itself is a big positive. The actor is making a comeback of sort in a full-fledged massy role. His role has grey shades, something which has always worked for him in the past.
2) Blockbuster trailer: The trailer has received superb response from viewers and critics.
3) Tremendous hype and buzz.
1) Director’s track record: Rahul Dholakia has a poor track record as a director.
2) Delayed film: Raees has been delayed a couple of times and except SRK fans audience seems to have lost interest in the film.
3) Lack of global appeal: Shah Rukh Khan films have a global appeal which is clearly missing from Raees. A story of a bootlegger would certainly not appeal to the family audience.
4) Clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil: Kaabil is a big movie and will surely give a big dent to Raees’ Box Office collections.
Raees Box Office Prediction: Expected Opening Day Prediction
Considering the current hype and buzz, we are expecting Raees to take a decent start at the Box Office. To be released on around 2600 screens, Raees is expected to collect 14 crores on its opening day. The movie is reportedly made on a budget of 90 crores including the publicity and advertising costs. Well, the recovery won’t be a big issue but Shah Rukh has to make a strong comeback. His contemporaries, Salman and Aamir are delivering 300 crore grossers and he is struggling to make even 100 crores.
Raees Box Office Prediction: Expected Lifetime Collection
As mentioned before, Raees will get strong competition from Kaabil. Moreover, the lack of global appeal will also affect the movie in a long run. As per our prediction, the movie will struggle to go past 150 crores at the domestic Box Office.
