Raees has been going quite well at the box-office so far but you will be surprised to know that Raees is not profitable for distributors all over India.
Raees was able to enter the much-coveted 100 crore club within three days of its release i.e. on 25th January. The movie was also able to earn good money in the overseas market. But the movie was not happy news for everyone. This is because Raees is not profitable for distributors as of yet.

A A Films owned by Anil Thadani brought all the distribution rights of the movie all over Indian and he shelled out around 70 crores to buy the rights. The company has not been able to recover that amount yet as they have only recovered 60 to 65 crores totally. In order to make a profit out of this investment, they still need to recover around 5 to 10 crores.
The total budget of Raees was 87 crores and the movie has recovered more than that. Now we have to wait and watch whether the movie will be able to be profitable for the distributors as well.
