Looking at the profits Raid earns 95 crores (140-45) whereas Pad Man earns 100 crores (120-20). So here, the winner is Pad Man.

3. Women Centric (Hichki VS Tumhari Sulu):

Both of the movies stars strong leads who have been supporting feminism for a quite long time. Hichki casts Rani Mukerji whereas Tumhari Sulu casts Vidya Balan. The Rani Mukerji starrer is influenced by an autobiography of a famous American author, Brad Cohen. Unlike other movies, Hichki has taken disability just as a motif.

There has been a lot of expectations regarding Aiyaary, which it failed to give. Due to which the Box office collection became a disaster for the movie. However, in case of Pari, it didn’t match the expectations but managed to score more. With a budget of 65 crores Aiyaary has earned 29 crores but in case of Pari, it has earned 40 crores with a budget of 18 crores. So here the winner is Pari.
