Yep. And someone also needs to mention kaabil faced a clash with raaes, had JJ clashed with another film, then we would be talking.

P.S- Kudos to BOI for trying to save a sinking ship. So now BOI will say even though JJ is a flop, it is a much better quality flop than kaabil and mjo.

I think they are just focusing on numbers as the readers already knows about the clash. Even Raees without the clash would have been easily ahead of Tubelight that too with a 10cr or more difference.

Vikram no. The verdict by BOI will be "highest grossing flop" in the delayed niche film category, proving ranbir is a bigger star than hrithik.

@Intense Haha. They will surely try to cover it up by giving excuses as usual.
