Box Office: Tiger Zinda Hai To Emerge A Huge Winner

Tiger Zinda Hai is set to emerge a big winner and possibly the biggest hit of the year after Bahubali - The Conclusion though there is some work still to be done for that. The film looks to have managed to found some growth on day two with collections looking to be 34.50 crore nett. This will take the two day business of the film to 68.50 crore nett. Dhoom 3 which was a film of a similar genre had slightly lower collections and also fell 1 crore nett on day two while Tiger Zinda hai with a better first day is going up on day two. Its a solid trend as there is no drop in the all India collections.

The growth has come mainly in the metro multiplexes though a few A centers have also added well and the fall in tier two and three centres is not as big as it could have been considering the big opening. The film is sure to cross 100 crore nett over the weekend and join Sultan and Bajrangi Bhaijaan which are other Salman khan starrers to hit the century mark in three days. The target is the 105.50 crore nett of Sultan which is the second highest weekend of all time after Bahubali - The Conclusion and this looks well within the reach for Tiger Zinda Hai. Its looking like a big finish to a bad year theatrically and it will be the weekdays that will confirm this.

Tiger Zinda Hai had the fifth highest opening day of all time but as can be seen with the chart below it is surrounded by films which have a holiday and all are big national holiday. The only ones without a holiday are Bahubali - The Conclusion, Tiger Zinda Hai and Dhoom 3. In terms of Salman Khan starrers its the third highest opener after Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Sultan.

It is that afternoon period that the non holiday releases have a shortfall in collections unless it is a craze like Bahubali - The Conclusion where holiday or no holiday does not matter. It makes it four 30 crore nett plus openers for Salman Khan while Shahrukh Khan and Ajay Devgn have two each. Below are the top ten opening days of all time. (Hindi only)
