Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Raees’ is breaking all records and slowly inching towards its first milestone. The film had superb collections over the extended weekend, and now it is very close to the coveted 100-crore mark.
‘Raees’ collected Rs 17.25 crore on Sunday, which was its fifth day, taking the total collection over its first weekend to Rs 92.25 crore, which is superb.
The movie got the benefit of the extended weekend, which was due to the fact that January 26 was a public holiday in the form of Republic day, and the weekend started the next day.
The word of mouth for this Shah Rukh Khan-starrer is also great. Not only the critics, but the audience too is going gaga over it. People are touting this to be the best performance of SRK till date.
The song ‘Laila Main Laila’ featuring Sunny Leone too is pulling the crowds towards the cinema hall as we can come across fans dancing in the theatres as soon as the song starts. (Also Read: ‘Raees’ fourth day collection: Shah Rukh Khan-starrer continues to do well at the box office)

Now let’s see if today’s collection take ‘Raees’ across the 100-crore mark or not.
