Not only on the weekends, but the Alia Bhatt-starrer has witnessed quite a growth on the weekdays too. Earning Rs 6.10 on Tuesday, the film is now inching closer to the Rs 50-cr mark.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh disclosed the total earning. Raazi has minted Rs 45.34 cr in a week. Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, “#Raazi continues its dominance… Occupancy/footfalls on Mon and Tue clearly indicates it’s poised for a FANTASTIC Week 1 total [approx ₹ 55 cr+]… Fri 7.53 cr, Sat 11.30 cr, Sun 14.11 cr, Mon 6.30 cr, Tue 6.10 cr.

Raazi narrates the story of a young Kashmiri girl, Sehmat Khan, who is trained to become a spy and then married off to a  Pakistani Army officer. Sehmat is sent on a mission to gather information for the Indian intelligence. Raazi is based on a novel, Calling Sehmat, written by Harinder Sikka, a former Indian Navy officer. The novel is inspired by the story of a Kashmiri woman who married a Pakistani officer during the 1971 India-Pakistan war. Alia Bhatt’s portrayal of feminine yet strong Sehmat Khan was quite evident in the trailers.
