The weekend is here and brings a new challenge for Tiger Zinda Hai. Last 5 weeks have proved very fruitful for the film, but its pace slowed down in the 6th week after the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat. The film received a rave response since its release and has not come to a standstill even if its box office collection has slowed down.
Before Tiger Zinda Hai, we saw Salman Khan’s Tubelight tanked at the box office. The film wasn’t received well by the audience and fans. And it seems that Salman became a wounded tiger after his film flopped. But he surely made a grand comeback with Tiger Zinda Hai and the year 2017 ended on a high note!
The film has entered its 7th week and till now it has collected 338.79 crores which is double the budget of the film which was invested in the making of this Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer film.
The box office collection of the film is as follows:
1st Week – 206.04 crore
2nd Week 2 – 85.51 crore
3rd Week – 27.31 crore
4th Week – 10.89 crore
5th Week – 5.81 crore
6th Week – 2.63 crore
7th Weekend – 60 lakhs
Total: 338.79 crore
This franchise of Ek Tha Tiger was based on a rescue operation, led by agents from India and Pakistan, to save 25 Indian nurses abducted by terrorist forces in Iraq. The lead characters Tiger (Salman Khan) and Zoya (Katrina Kaif) remained the same for both the films.
Following the trend of releasing his films in an around a festival, this film too released on 22nd of December which was close to Christmas, which meant a holiday for the movie viewers and this strategy even worked in favour of the film.
