Director Meghna Gulzar's Raazi has turned out to be a huge-spinner at the box office. Apart from the makers, the film has also turned out to be a turning point for lead actress Alia Bhatt as well. The period-spy thriller has raked in Rs 102.50 in 17 days and with this business, it has surpassed the lifetime collections of 2 States (Rs 102.13 crore). The film has now become the second highest grosser of Alia Bhatt of all time. Looking at the current performance of Raazi, we are expecting it to cross the lifetime business of Badrinath Ki Dulhania (Rs 116.68 crore) by end of its fourth weekend to become her biggest hit till date.
The film has also turned out to be fifth highest grosser of 2018 after Padmaavat, Baaghi 2, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Raid. It will cross Ajay Devgn's Raid today to achieve the fourth position in the list. Alia Bhatt today expressed her happiness of Raazi achieving the Rs 100 crore milestone on Twitter by tweeting, "THANK YOU!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ @meghnagulzar @karanjohar @vickykaushal09 @apoorvamehta18 @vineetjaintimes @DharmaMovies @JungleePictures".
Talking about the film's success and appreciation from the audience, Alia had earlier said, "I didn't expect this kind of response. Since the beginning, we thought that we were making a small film, so we didn't feel we would get so much attention and love from the audience. We were proud of the film but the kind of unanimous reaction we are getting for the film is amazing. We all are pleasantly shocked. I am really happy, especially for Meghna Gulzar (director) because I think she hasn't slept for God knows how many months. She was so nervous before the release of the film but the audience has given so much love that we are so grateful. Some people were crying after watching the film and I feel really happy when I make people cry through my films. Then I feel we have done our job."
