Alia Bhatt starrer Raazi has been wreaking havoc at the Indian box office. Surpassing all expectations, the film collected Rs 7.53 on its opening day and even experienced a growth of more than 50 percent on its second day with a collection of Rs 11.30 crore. Film trade analyst Girish Johar had earlier predicted that Raazi’s weekend collection would be somewhere between Rs 25 crore to Rs 27 crore, but the film has surpassed the expectations. The Meghna Gulzar directorial has minted Rs 14.11 crore on Sunday, taking the total collection to Rs 32.94 crore.

Setting aside Hollywood superhero film Avengers: Infinity War, the Vicky Kaushal film has managed to become the fifth highest weekend grosser of 2018, after Padmaavat, Baaghi, Padman and Raid.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared Raazi’s collection figures on Twitter. He wrote, “#Raazi has a FANTASTIC opening weekend… Alia’s star power + power-packed performances + strong content + solid word of mouth helped multiply numbers… Fri 7.53 cr, Sat 11.30 cr, Sun 14.11 cr. Total: ₹ 32.94 cr. India biz.”

In another tweet, he mentioned, “TOP 5 – 2018
Opening Weekend biz…
1. #Padmavaat ₹ 114 cr [extended weekend; select previews on Wed, released on Thu]… Hindi + Tamil + Telugu.
2. #Baaghi2 ₹ 73.10 cr
3. #Raid ₹ 41.01 cr
4. #PadMan ₹ 40.05 cr
5. #Raazi ₹ 32.94 cr
India biz.
[Hollywood films not included]”


With no other big names in the cast, the film completely relies on the shoulders of its lead actor Alia Bhatt. But looks like a good word-of-mouth promotion and decent reviews have also worked in the film’s favour.

Inspired by true events, Raazi narrates the story of a 19-year-old Kashmiri student Sehmat who embarks on a mission to relay classified information from Pakistan to help India in the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War. It is based on the novel Calling Sehmat by Harinder Sikka.

Helmed by Talvar director Meghna Gulzar, Raazi has been bankrolled by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The film also stars Vicky Kaushal, Soni Razdan, Rajit Kapur and Jaideep Ahlawat in significant roles.
