‘Kaabil’ box office collection day 17: Hrithik Roshan starrer is doing fairly okay

Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam-starrer ‘Kaabil‘ is doing a fair business at the box office. As per figures from the production house, the movie has minted Rs 1.11 crore on day 17, i.e. on Friday. The overall 17-day collection of the movie stands at Rs 130.27 crore which is good enough, considering that the movie was pitted against Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Raees’ on January 25, 2017.

Yesterday, Akshay Kumar-starrer courtroom drama ‘Jolly LL.B 2’ hit the big screens, so the drop in numbers was expected. (ALSO READ: ‘Kaabil’ adds another feather to its cap, becomes the first super hit film of 2017)
