Alia Bhatt's Raazi has enjoyed a phenomenal third weekend at the box office. The film remained unaffected by Parmanu's release and continued its splendid run at the ticket windows. The spy-thriller currently stands at a grand total of Rs 102.50 crore and holds the fifth position in the list of 2018's highest grossing films. It will cross the collections of Ajay Devgn's Raid (Rs 103.27 crore) to grab the fourth position in the list. Interestingly, both the films are based on true events and have worked majorly thanks to a positive word-of-mouth.
Since two Bollywood releases, Veere Di Wedding and Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, are arriving this Friday, Raazi will face a huge screen crunch at the box office. Made on a reasonable budget of Rs 37 crore, including promotion and advertising, the film had recovered its 90 per cent investment through non-theatrical sales which included the music, satellite, digital and overseas rights. Thus, the whopping collections have made this film a blockbuster at the box office. Featuring Vicky Kaushal, Shishir Sharma, Rajit Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Amruta Khanvilkar in pivotal roles, Raazi is directed by Meghna Gulzar, who previously helmed films like Talvar, Just Married and Filhaal. It is produced under the banners of Dharma Productions and Junglee Pictures.
Based on Harinder Sikka's book Calling Sehmat, the story of the film Raazi revolves around a young Kashmiri girl who gets married to a Pakistani Army officer and becomes a spy to give inside information about the neighbouring country to protect her own. Apart from the exemplary performances from the ensemble cast, the film also received praises for a great story-telling and gripping direction. Anyway, do you think it will surpass Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety at the box office to become the third highest grosser of the year? Share your thoughts in the comments section below...
