Glad tidings for all SRK and Mahira fans! Raees appears to be going quite steady at the box office, ever since its release on January 25.

The crime drama had a massive opening at the ticket window -- better than SRK's last two films Fan and Dear Zindagi -- and has only been rising from then on, coming close to the INR500 million mark in just two days, reported Times of India.

Indian trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter yesterday to share the good news. "#Raees is PHENOMENAL on Day 2. All set to pack a FAB total in its 5-day weekend. Wed 20.42 cr, Thu 26.30 cr. Total:  46.72 cr. India biz," he wrote.

And this is just domestic earnings. Experts are predicting the Rahul Dholakia directorial will soon cross INR500 million in its overall earnings.

Seeing how the film was facing competition from Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil, which also released on January 25, it has exceeded all expectations.
