As per trade sources, Hichki is made at a budget around Rs20 crore. With Rs15 crore already in its kitty, it stands a chance of turning out to be a safe bet for the producers, Yash Raj Films. A total of Rs15 crore in the opening weekend may not sound too impressive, but considering the budget, it's a good number.

Ajay Devgn-starrer Raid also had a good second weekend as it amassed Rs15.25 crore in the three days. The film, directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, is made at a high budget of Rs70 crore. But it has already earned Rs75 crore nett and its box office journey is far from over.
