Salman Khan has come up with an ultimate Christmas gift for his fans with his recent release Tiger Zinda Hai which got released this Friday. And while the Salman fans can’t stop gushing about Khan being in his best form on the big screen, Tiger Zinda Hai is expected to be a blockbuster.
The movie, which is said to be the sequel to 20102 release Ek Tha Tiger, has opened to favorable reviews from the audience and critics.
Tiger Zinda Hai also features Katrina Kaif in the lead role opposite Salman and both the stars will be reprising their roles from the first movie. Being a Salman Khan movie, the movie is expected to get a terrific opening at the box office.
In fact, Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh had also stated that Tiger Zinda Hai witnessed a houseful shows in the morning and is likely to set the box office on fire.
He further stated that Tiger Zinda Hai is expected to take over the box office given the long weekend coming up for the audience.
According to a report published in Indian Express, the Salman-starrer is expected to mint around Rs 35 crore on its opening day and will cross the Rs 100 crore mark in the opening weekend itself.
“After a long lull at the box office, this is one of the biggest films of the year. The audience has been keen to watch the film. The trailer, action sequences and songs were breathtaking and garnered a lot of views. I feel that despite being a non-holiday, Tiger Zinda Hai should have at least Rs 35 crore start on its first day. Since it is a Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer, I wouldn’t be very surprised if the film crosses the Rs 100 crore mark by the end of the first weekend,” trade analyst Girish Johar was quoted saying to Indian Express.
Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Tiger Zinda Hai was released on 4600 screens across India.
Notably, Tiger Zinda Hai is said to be an important movie for Salman Khan, given the terrible reviews of his last release Tubelight which flunked at the box office.
We wonder if this Salman Khan starrer will be one of the highest grossing movies of 2017.
