The advance booking of Raees and Kaabil has opened across the country on Sunday, 22 January 2017. As per early trends, Shah Rukh Khan has a huge lead over Hrithik Roshan as far as advance ticket sales are concerned.
The tickets for the film are already sold out at many properties in Pune, Hyderabad, Delhi, UP, Indore, Kolkata and Rajasthan. Kaabil too has received a fair response and the movie is set to record a bigger opening than Roshan's last film, Mohenjo Daro. While Raees is looking to touch the Rs 20 crore mark on the opening day, Kaabil should comfortably breach past the double digit number.
Although Raees would dominate Kaabil on the opening two days, the film with better content would take over from Friday, 27 January 2017.
