Raid 1st Day Box Office Collection: Ajay Devgn’s Raid collected approx 10.04 crores on its opening day. The film had a slow start in the morning shows but managed to pick up the pace after that.
The opening day is reasonable if we consider the genre and response to promos and songs. It is same as Akshay Kumar’s Padman though that film was released in less number of screens and dealt with a taboo subject. It is also in the same range as Ajay Devgn’s Baadshaho which had an ensemble cast with superhit music.
The film is likely to show good growth on Saturday as the word of mouth seems to be on the positive side. However, it will be the Sunday trend that will decide the fate of the film. In recent past, we have seen that content-oriented films show growth on Saturday but fails to do so on Sunday due to the rejection from the family audience. It will be interesting to see how Raid will fare.
