Raees vs Dangal box office collections: Shahrukh Khan’s turn as Gujarat bootlegger got him many comparisons to Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil in terms of box office revenue. But how does SRK compare to Aamir Khan’s Dangal? A look at their first few days of the films provides some clue as to whether Shahrukh can challenge Aamir’s box office supremacy.

Opening day: There’s almost a Rs 10 crore difference between the two films. Raees took home Rs 20.42 crore, while Dangal raked in Rs 29.78 crore, according to a report in Bollywood Hungama. Factors that account for the difference included demonetisation – as audiences were still getting used to the digital lifestyle when Dangal was released. Raees came out on Wednesday as opposed to Dangal’s Friday release.

Opening weekend: Within three days, Aamir entered the 100 Crore Club with Rs 107.01 by Sunday night. Shahrukh Khan was a few crores shy of reaching the club at Rs 93.24 crore, even though Raees had five days to reach the mark.

Week 1 earnings: Aamir ended his week on a triumphant note at Rs 197.54 crore, Shahrukh, on the other hand, stood at Rs 122.36 crore. In the first week, Dangal’s lowest box office earning was Rs 18.59 crore, while Raees’ was Rs 4 crore.

Second weekend: Dangal’s earnings picked up over the second weekend again with Rs 55.11 crore, while Raees scored Rs 8.75 crore.

End of week 2 earnings: By the end of the second week, Dangal had entered the 300 Crore Club with Rs 313.5 crore. Raees took home almost half of that with Rs 137.71 crore. The gap between their lowest earning days narrowed with Dangal getting only Rs 6.66 crore on its second Friday and Raees earning Rs 4 crore on its second Saturday.

      Of course this called Raees can't compare with Dangal in any way. SRK is a fraud and these box office collections of movies are all fabricated. None of the sources all agree and collections all seem subjective. If you like SRK, then all his box office collections will cross 1000 crore on just day 1. Also there are multiple reports of Kaabil's performance. Jealousy, corruption and fraud give India its ideny to the rest of the world. SRK is a fraud who buys the media and forces his KING status. Ever wonder that EVEN WITH ALL THE BOX OFFICE POWER AND OSCAR NOMINATIONS, Aamir Khan is not given the baadshah le while SRK who achieves NOTHING at the box office is the so-called King. Kaabil is a weak movie in many ways, but is FAR BETTER than Raees. HR is the only actor who can challenge Aamir Khan. But it's IMPOSSIBLE to trust box office collections from any source in India.

          Are you mad? Raees wala a non-festive release that too with a clash with a big movie. Still got 20 cr opening. No one can touch SRK in terms of stardom.
