Ajay Devgn’s Raid has released today at the box office. The film created a lot of buzz due to its songs and trailer. Also, it has received positive reviews from the critics. Now, it would be interesting to see how it performs on its opening day. Here we are discussing Raid First Day Collection early estimates in details.

The only difference between Raid and Ajay Devgn’s last release Drishyam is that the former is based on a true story. And nowadays this category of films earns an excellent amount at the box office. Also, the director Raj Kumar Gupta is known for giving hits like No One Killed Jessica, and Aamir. Although Raid is not promoted massively still there is a lot of craze among the audience for the film. Here is the first day collection of the two similar films:

  • Special 26 – Rs. 5.87 crores
  • Drishyam – Rs. 5.87 crores

Both Special 26 and Drishyam opened on a decent note but gained momentum over the first weekend. Let’s discuss the expected opening day earning of Ajay Devgn’s Raid.

Opening Day Collection Early Estimates

Raid opens decently and would show an increasing trend in the afternoon and evening shows. Well, this is a common trend for most of the low budget films on their opening day. As the day progresses, Raid would attract more moviegoers to its theaters and a jump in its collection is expected by the evening. The holdover release, SKTKS is performing well but there would not be any major competition for Raid as the former has entered its fourth week.

The movie is most likely to perform better than Ajay Devgn’s Drishyam but would earn in the decent range. It would be a big challenge for Raid to cross the first day collection of Padman, which earned over Rs. 10 crores on its day 1. More updates about Raid’s performance will be made available soon.
