It goes in trade parlance that bad weather, festival engagements, elections etc, are excuses for justifying a below the mark start of a big venture, and a real blockbuster, defies all that. Well, Yash Raj Films’, Ali Abbas Zafar directed Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer, TIGER ZINDA HAI, has a seen a no holds barred start, which defies expectations.
Banking on the huge hype, star power, two hit songs (SWAG & DIL DIYAN GALLAN) and brand Tiger, TZH managed the best advance booking for a Hindi film in recent times, beating Salman Khan’s very own, SULTAN.
As per pan India inputs, TIGER ZINDA HAI has seen a 75-80 percent start during the dreaded morning shows, and that with many parts of North and East India under the spell of cold weather, which has set in, earlier than expected.
The first day is likely to see a new record and the extended 4-day weekend will witness records tumbling like nine pins, touché wood!
