Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees is enjoying a good run at the box office. The film which saw a clash with Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil has always maintained an edge. But will the coming Friday release, Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2, affect the business of SRK’s film?
Raees vs Kaabil clash has kept the box office busy since past month but now, Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 might just end the clash with its release on February 10. Interestingly, even before the release of the legal drama, Jolly LLB 2 has earned a profit of Rs 45 crore. According to the trade analyst Joginder Tuteja, Jolly LLB 2 has already recovered its budget with satellite, music and digital rights.
