Trade analyst Komal Nahata said: "Raees has seen a very strong opening at the box office". Kaabil movie also received a big musical hit and also the teaser also received a good response.

The movie, which earned Rs 10.43 crore on first day of its release, is expected to collect around Rs 15 crore on the second day.

Not only the movies are on a clash, but released in midweek on Wednesday.
