Box office report: Salman Khan’s Tubelight falls behind Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees on day 2

Salman
Khan
‘s Tubelight
started off well on day 1 at the box office, raking in Rs 21.15
crore to become the second highest opener of 2017. It quite clearly beat Shah Rukh Khan’s
Raees on the opening day and took a commanding lead.
However looks like day two hasn’t gone according to plan for
Salman Khan. Tubelight did not see a growth on
Saturday, raking in just Rs 21.17 crore and taking the overall
tally of the film  to Rs 42.32 crore. With that, Salman
Khan’s Tubelight fell behind Shah Rukh Khan’s
Raees, which had collected Rs 46.72 crore in two days.

While this is nothing unusual, the fact that Tubelight
has failed to beat Raees
with an even bigger screen space is surprising. Yes,
Raees did enjoy a Holiday on day 2 (January 26,
Republic day), but still it had to recover a lot of ground
after Tubelight had a really good day one. In
fact, Raees had competition from Hrithik Roshan’s
Kaabil during the same time, while Tubelight
has had a free run. However, there is nothing to worry as
Salman Khan’s latest release has been affected by the pre-Eid
period. A lot of his followers have not been able to watch the
movie because of the month of Ramadan. Once Eid takes place
tomorrow, people will flock to the theatres and you will see a
huge spike post Tuesday. In the lifetime run, we guess
Tubelight will outperform Raees, but for now
let Shah Rukh
Khan
bask in glory. (ALSO READ – Tubelight

Directed by Kabir Khan,
Tubelight is a story about the sweet relationship of
two brothers with a backdrop of the 1962 Indo-China war. The
inspirational quest of a slow learning, younger brother to find
and save his elder sibling from the war zone forms the rest of
the story. Raees, on the other hand, tells the tale of
a bootlegger, whose thriving business in Gujarat
is restricted after a tough cop comes into his town.
