Raazi has emerged the second highest first weekend grosser where the film is driven by the female star of the film. The first day was fourth but it managed to get into second place for the weekend. The top film is Tanu Weds Manu Returns be it first day, first weekend, first week or lifetime. But this film was a franchise of a HIT film Tanu Weds Manu which gave it that extra padding compared to the other films on the list below.

The numbers are a struggle for female driven films with no film going over the 40 crore nett mark. The problem being very restricted niche films with only Tanu Weds Manu Returns holding appeal in most places of India followed by a Raazi and Mary Kom which have similar reach. So therefore the numbers also reflect that. A Jai Gangaajal has potential all India appeal but the way that film is made ensures metro audiences keep away.

The top opening weekends of films driven by the main female lead are as follows.

  1. Tanu Weds Manu Returns - 37,58,00,000
  1. Raazi - 32,75,00,000 apprx
  1. Mary Kom - 29,88,00,000
  1. Ragini MMS 2 - 22,90,00,000
  1. Neerja - 21,99,00,000
  1. Heroine - 21,62,00,000
  1. Jism 2 - 20,45,00,000
  1. Kahaani 2 - 16,51,00,000
  1. Akira - 15,75,00,000
  1. Jai Gangaajal - 15,65,00,000

Two Weeks ago -

only God knows who the majority of Hindi films (#102NotOut & #Raazi) are made for.

Now -

102NotOut has a decent 2nd weekend (likely to be a Successfull venture).

Raazi May Emerge as Blockbuster

It's great numbers for a movie like this. And additionally it shows alia has more talent than some of the so called talented facemakers of this generation. So the joke is this.....Alia easily beat jagaa jasoos.
