Kaabil box office collections day 14: Hrithik Roshan continues his slow tread towards the Rs 150 crore mark. Kaabil’s Tuesday earnings of Rs 3.05 crore outstripped its Monday earnings of Rs 2.97 crore. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Kaabil’s total earnings stand at Rs 124.07 crore. While a shot at the Rs 200 Crore Club is nowhere in sight for Hrithik, he might still have a chance at making Rs 150 crore. However, even the chances of this might become slim, giving that Kaabil’s daily earnings will get less when Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB hits theatres this Friday.
One factor that might work well in Kaabil’s favour is Valentine’s Day. During Valentine’s week, the movies in theatres will include Jolly LLB, Shahrukh Khan’s Raees along with leftovers like Haraamkhor and Dangal. The most romantic movie (if that tag can be used) in this context is Kaabil, which might make it a top pick for couples. Moreover its combination of romance and action – factors that worked extremely well for last year’s Valentine’s Day release Deadpool – might hike up its earnings.

While Raees also features a love angle, it is not as pronounced as Kaabil’s. Yami Gautam is the second lead character in the film, while Mahira Khan takes third billing in Raees, after SRK and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. If Kaabil can capitalise on the Valentine’s Day sentiments, then it would have to pull in around Rs 2-3 crore for another seven days to reach the Rs 150 crore mark. Given Akshay’s impact on the box office, however, Team Kaabil would really need to amp up the excitement around their film by selling the romance angle.
