Finally, the week has arrived, the week when we could see one of the biggest blockbusters of the year – Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai. When you have Salman Khan in the film, box office returns are not much of a worry until you have sold the film at an unbelievable price.
Salman Khan’s movies come with a guarantee of opening sky-high on its opening day. We are seeing this since many years now; with the same hope for Tiger Zinda Hai we know it will open big but how big – that is the question.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which released in 2015 over the festive time of Diwali remains to be his highest opening day grosser. The film collected 40.35 crores on its first day itself. It was a family drama and hence collected such a huge sum.
Though Tiger Zinda Hai is releasing on a regular Friday, due the extraordinary buzz around the film and the huge fan following of Salman Khan, one can definitely expect a humongous opening for it. Looking at his previous records, the actor’s last release, Tubelight clocked at 21.15 crores at the box office.
