Alia Bhatt’s latest film Raazi has been doing incredibly well at the box office, especially considering the fact that the movie in itself doesn’t boast of stars, but performers. Raazi has minted Rs 39.24 crore at the box office till now. The film had released on May 11. Now that’s quite a feat in itself.
Raazi is not your conventional Bollywood masala film. The movie is a political thriller based on the book Calling Sehmat by Harinder Sikka. The film’s main plotline revolves around an Indian woman who is married to a Pakistani officer. The film captures the journey of a woman called Sehmat and how she turns into a spy for the Indian government.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh had earlier shared the latest figures of the film with a tweet that read, “#Raazi shows EXCELLENT HOLD on Mon… Decline on Mon [vis-à-vis Fri] is a mere 16.33% – SUPERB… The film has found pan-India acceptance, which is a rarity these days… Fri 7.53 cr, Sat 11.30 cr, Sun 14.11 cr, Mon 6.30 cr. Total: ₹ 39.24 cr. India biz.”

According to Adarsh’ another tweet, the film is on its way to becoming a superhit if it continues to earn the way it has been earning at BO. “It’s about the all-important Mon… #Raazi is already a HIT, but the numbers on Mon will give an idea of how it is likely to trend on weekdays… If the film holds on strong levels on weekdays and beyond, which is likely, it will emerge a SUPER-HIT.”
