Much has been said about Raees and Kaabil till now. Even before the two movies hit the screens, it had became a talk of the town. Everybody was curious as to which movie will be a bigger hit.

Ever since the two movies went on floors on 26th of January, there has been much speculation as to which will make it to the top. However, as expected the viewers were splitted because of different preferences and it resulted in a great loss for the two.
The makers of Kaabil including the director of the movie, Rakesh Roshan tried their best to coax Shahrukh. They strived hard to persuade the makers of Raees into postponing their movie’s release. But to their great disappointment, they did not agree to their requests.
This affected their box office collections. One big reason behind Raees success over that of Kaabil is that the former got more screens than the latter.
Apparently, the distributor of Raees, Anil Thadani was also the distributor of Baahubali 2 trailer. According to the bid, only those screens which will release Raees would get to release Baahubali’s trailer.
