Shah Rukh Khan's Raees may have opened with a bang and made its way to the Rs 100 crore club, but the film's box office collections are still nowhere close to Aamir Khan's Dangal and Salman Khan's Sultan. SRK said that his film should not be compared with the two biggest hits of 2016.
At the success party of Raees, Shah Rukh said that the response to the film has been better than what they expected. He said, "Every film has its own business, has its place. We have had films which are different and niche. To measure every film with the same barometer is weird. Having said that, it will have its own limited business."
He added, "At this point in time we are a little beyond that also. Business wise, it is better than what we expected, collection figures notwithstanding. Its nice to know everything is going well. If I start comparing, then sky is the limit."
SRK said that he knows the limitations of his films, "Why should we compare with only the last big hit, like Dangal, Sultan which are much bigger hits than perhaps this film can ever be. We know that. That comparison from outside, very good. From inside, we know the truth that there is a limit it will go to and if it reaches we will be happy."
However, he is elated that the audience has received the film well. Shah Rukh said, "We really thought that the film will be liked by people and that's the biggest thing. This is kind of a good mix so it feels very nice. Our film was delayed, there were some issues too but I am very happy everything has turned out good."
