Raid box office collection: Superstar Ajay Devgn is again showcasing his popularity in India. His movie has been in cinemas for weeks and it is showing no signs of making an exit. In fact, far from it. The audience is still streaming in even though the numbers have thinned considerably over the last few days. However, there seems to be no stopping this movie from entering the Rs 100 cr club as the earnings are rising inexorably to that magic superhit level. In the latest data release, it has been revealed that Raid collection has risen to Rs 96.97 crore. This is on the back of having earned Rs 6.86 cr over weekend number 3.
Raid box office collection is ballooning despite one major hurdle that has come in, last Friday actually, when Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 2 released. No one expected it to do too well. However, from day 1, it has been racking up astonishing BO numbers and followed it uo day after day. From initial prediction of Rs 10 cr to Rs 12 cr on opening day, Baaghi 2, that also stars Disha Patani, earned virtually double that. This movie has collected Rs 73.10 cr in opening weekend! Admirable? Surely so! However, what kind of effect would this have had on Raid? For a normal actor it would have been game over. But not for Ajay Devgn.
Since the release of Baaghi 2, Ajay Devgn starrer Raid box office collection is continuing to boost its take. For instance, Raid colelction on Friday was Rs 1.82 crore, Saturday was Rs 2.26 crore, and Sunday was Rs 2.78 crore for a total of Rs 96.97 crore! No dent in earnings visible there and it is clear that Ajay Devgn is holding fort well in the face of an all out attack by Baaghi 2. Also, in between, another hit film had sought to displace Raid. We are talking about Rani Mukerji starrer Hichki. It has become a hit having earned Rs 34.50 crore, but it too wasn't able to move Raid from its perch at the BO.
What that shows is that Raid box office collection will rise to Rs 100 cr mark, giving Ajay Devgn yet another movie to burnish his star. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the amounts earned by Raid.
