Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai has managed to give a fillip to Bollywood trade, prove that fans will flock to the theatres as long as Bhai does his trademark cinema and ensure that 2018 begins for the industry on a positive note. Thirteen days after its release, Tiger Zinda Hai has earned Rs 286.46 crore at the ticket windows and is eyeing the Rs 300-crore club.
In the process, it has demolished many a record, some of them Salman’s own. It has emerged as the highest grossing Hindi film of 2017, easily overtaking Golmaal 4 and its approx Rs 205 crore lifetime earnings.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Thursday: “#TigerZindaHai is STEADY... [Week 2] Fri 11.56 cr, Sat 14.92 cr, Sun 22.23 cr, Mon 18.04 cr, Tue 7.83 cr, Wed 5.84 cr. Total: ₹ 286.46 cr. India biz... #TZH biz affected on Wed in Maharashtra.”
The film is expected to overtake Salman’s earlier release, Sultan, which made Rs 300.45 crore, this week. Trade is hoping it can earn more than Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 320.34 crore) given there are no big releases till Akshay Kumar’s Padman and Sidharth Malhotra’s Aiyaary releases on January 26.
