"Raees", which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, collected Rs 26.30 crore on Thursday, read a statement from the makers.

The Rahul Dholakia directorial, which collected Rs 20.42 crore on its opening day, is expected to get a "fabulous" total in its five-day long opening weekend, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
