Let us get on to the repeat mode and commence by saying, just as expected and predicted, Yash Raj Films’ Ali Abbas Zafar directed TIGER ZINDA HAI, has decimated the box-office records, left, right and center.
After the best non-holiday start (34 crore), TIGER ZINDA HAI upped the ante and added 34.50 crore plus on the second day (normally a fall is seen, after a huge opening day). But the best was yet to come and Sunday broke the 45 crore barrier (still to be confirmed) for not only the best single day but the biggest 3-day weekend (113-114 crore) as well . In the process TZH has beaten the likes of DANGAL, HAPPY NEW YEAR and Salman’s very own, SULTAN!
TIGER is also at its ferocious best in the overseas (numbers awaited due to Christmas holidays), but still TZH grossed $2m in two days in the Gulf (despite Kuwait ban) and North America saw $475,000 on the opening day, while UK mopped up £150,000 and is in the charts in Australia and New Zealand.
What the above translates into is the fact that TIGER ZINDA HAI is sure to be a super hit and may be a blockbuster, despite a huge 130 crore budget.
