Shahrukh Khan is a happy man after his latest flick “Raees” hit the box- office bullseye and is racing towards the magical Rs 200 crores gross mark.

Till 6th February 2017, the movie had raked in Rs 150 crores from the domestic market and Rs 250.56 crores from the overseas market. The film was released in 2700 screens initially but came down this Friday.

“Raees,” made on a budget of Rs 850 million was directed by director Rahul Dholakia and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani. The film based loosely on bootlegger Abdul Lateef from Gujarat is set around the early 1980’s.

Unlike Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan’s films have never entered the Rs. 3000 million club. His previous flicks like "Chennai Express" and "Happy New Year" had done Rs 2270 million and Rs 2030 million respectively. It will be interesting to see if the big Khan can enter the exclusive club.

"Raees" has done exceptionally well in Singapore which has a large population of people of Indian origin. According to trade analysts Tarun Adarsh, the flick has collected $226,000! Highest ever weekend for any Bollywood film.

Public response

What is being applauded is the return of Shahrukh as the brooding and angry young man after more than two decades of acting in soft romantic or social films.
