Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest figures and wrote, “#Raabta Fri 5.61 cr, Sat 5.11 cr, Sun 5.21 cr. Total: ₹ 15.93 cr. India biz.” He also wrote, “#Raabta – OVERSEAS – opening weekend: $ 366,825 [₹ 2.36 cr]… Data follows…” It remains to be seen if the film will pass weekday test.
Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput said that failure of a film doesn’t affect him. “No, failure of a film doesn’t scare me. But I am aware it has repercussions. It doesn’t scare me because I started (acting) when I quit Delhi College of Engineering and I was doing theatre… I was staying with six guys in a single room, ” the actor told IANS.
“When I was doing theatre or TV, I was thinking that ‘Okay, I have to slog right now because one day I will be successful’. I was successful then… Be it theatre, TV or films I don’t care… As long as I act,” Sushant added.
Even though Raabta might have failed to perform at box office, the audience seems to have liked the chemistry of Kriti and Sushant in the film. Amid speculations of their alleged relationship, Sushant spoke about Kriti and said, “Kriti is a very dear and a special friend. There are many things that we can talk about, and share similar passions. Delhi background, engineering, food, films. She is also very transparent and a very hard working actor, which I absolutely admire.”
