Salman Khan’s Tubelight has managed to perform decently well in its opening weekend at the overseas box office.
Apart from grossing 93.26 crores (nett. 64.77 crores) at the domestic market, the emotional drama has also grossed around 22.55 crores in the international markets.
It now stands with the global collections of 115.81 crores.
The film was held back in by pre-Eid in the United Kingdom and The Gulf, but still, it should have had better collections especially in markets like US / Canada and Australia. Nepal fared well but is probably due to the fact that film is based in the North East so there is some familiarity.
The weekdays will be better in UK and Gulf but eventually how much can it make up and in US / Canada the film is not going anywhere.
Tubelight is the story of a man’s unshakable faith in himself and the love for his family. Ina small picturesque town in North India, Laxman (Salman Khan) lives with his younger brother Bharat (Sohail Khan). The two have no other family and are inseparable. Laxman’s world comes crashing a small picturesque town in North India, Laxman (Salman Khan) lives with his younger brother Bharat (Sohail Khan). The two have no other family and are inseparable. Laxman’s world comes crashing down when war breaks out and Bharat gets drafted into the Army. A helpless Bharat leaves a devastated Laxman behind. News from the border only worsens, as the tension continues to escalate. Seeing the carnage around him and worried for his brother, Laxman decides he must stop this conflict and get his brother back.
In terms of Indian business, Salman will first have to compete with himself and then Aamir. Salman’s 2015 release, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is his highest grosser till date and Tubelight will have to beat that to become his highest grosser ever.
