Raid Day 1 Box Office Collection Update: Ajay Devgn's Raid has a slow start at the box office on its opening day. Actually this is the lowest opening for an Ajay Devgn starrer in recent times. This was expected due to the genre and appeal of the film.
Raid has opened to around 20% occupancy in the morning shows on Friday. The opening is hard to come for films like these unless you have Shahrukh Khan or Salman Khan. Probably these are the only actors who can take opening irrespective of the genre. A similar film like Special 26 had a same start but that film was released in less number of screens.
In terms of occupancy, Raid has taken the 4th highest opening of 2018. However Ajay Devgn starrer is released in 3400 screens which is a big number for content oriented film like this. It is the second widest release of the year hence the occupancy is lower as compared to Padman which had a controlled release.
