However, Raazi collection is expected to pick up during the evening and night shows as well as over the weekend. Exactly how the word of mouth boost pans out will be crucial in deciding the ultimate fate of the movie.

With no other competition from other releases, apart from the mega Hollywood release Avengers: Infinity War, which has defied all predictions to enter the Rs 200 cr club. However, it is at the fag end of its run now and is not expected to pose too tough a challenge for Raazi. All in all, this Alia Bhatt starrer is expected to bag Rs 4-5 cr on its opening day.
