Even though it lagged behind Padmaavat by a huge margin, Raid has given a tough fight to Akshay Kumar's PadMan which was one of the most awaited movies of the year. Now, all eyes are whether the Ajay Devgn release will be able to beat Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety's record that is basking in the glory of having grossed more than Rs 100 Crore on the box office. Going by the trends, it is definitely expected to reach the milestone soon. TOP 5 - 2018 Opening Week biz. 1. #Padmavaat \u20b9 166.50 cr [9 days; select previews on Wed, released on Thu].
