Such performance in the third week shows what wonder positive word of mouth can do at the ticket counters. Two new Bollywood releases will hit the screens this week, so it will lose a large number of screens, but it should not find any hindrance in crossing the lifetime collection of Badrinath Ki Dulhania (116.68 cr) in the fourth week. After giving some stellar performances in films like ‘Highway’, ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘2 States’ and many others, Alia Bhatt is one of the young talents in Bollywood who has proved her mettle in the industry. ‘Raazi’ marks her third film, after ‘2 States’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, which made it to the Rs 100 crore club.
The business of the film is as follows:
Week 1: ₹ 56.59 cr
Week 2: ₹ 35.04 cr
Friday (Day 15): ₹ 2.25 cr
Saturday (Day 16): ₹ 4.20 cr
Sunday (Day 17): ₹ 4.42 cr
Monday (Day 18): ₹ 1.82 cr
Tuesday (Day 19): ₹ 1.80 cr
Wednesday (Day 20): ₹ 1.92 cr
