Shah Rukh Khan's star-power has clearly shown its strength at the box office, with Raees crossing the Rs 100-crore mark in its first week, whereas Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil continues to be falling short. Early estimates counsel that whereas SRK's film raked in around Rs 10 crore on day 7, Hrithik's revenge drama grossed around Rs 9.5 crore.
While the content-heavy Kaabil is currently giving stiff competition to Raees despite having lesser screens and shows, the opening day lead of SRK's film is proving difficult to shut. SRK's gangster film has raced ahead in the overseas market as well, though if reports are to be believed, Kaabil can release in pakistan in the week, earlier than Raees's release next week. as long as pakistan may be a huge consumer of bollywood films, Kaabil's early release could be a boon for Hrithik's film, especially as a result of it's probably to be the primary bollywood film to be released after the lifting of the ban on Indian films.
