Filmmaker-actor Sohail Khan is elated about the stupendous opening the film Ek Tha Tiger received, and says it’s the best ‘Eidi’ for his brother actor Salman Khan, who plays the lead in the movie.
“It’s the happiest feeling anyone can have. I have seen the film, it’s superb. I think it’s the best Eidi that Salman bhai’s
fans could give him. The whole family can go and watch it together,” Sohail said at a special screening. According to reports, Ek Tha Tiger did a whopping business of Rs.
32.95 crore in the country alone, on the opening day, breaking the record set by Hrithik Roshan starrer Agneepath, that collected Rs.
25 crore on its first day. “Salman has got a heart of a tiger. If you see, he has been working for the past 22 years. He has taken his time and the foundation is much stronger today,” said Sohail.
The 41-year-old added, “Salman is not like those paper tiger actors who feel if they come in front of the media and create some attention, they can create stardom too. It is the love of the fans you have to gather for years to come to the position that Salman has come to. He is absolutely what his fans have made him. Really happy that he has got this loyal fan following.”
