- Tiger Zinda Hai made Rs 151 cr in 4 days, which covers production cost
- I thank my fans and audiences for showering so much love: Salman
- Salman's first 2017 film, Tubelight, tanked at the box office
"The love that the movie is getting right now only validates the efforts everyone put in to make a really good entertainer. I congratulate Katrina (actress Katrina Kaif) for her extraordinary performance and Ali (director Ali Abbas Zafar) for his vision and awesome direction to pull off Tiger Zinda Hai," Salman Khan added.
Tiger Zinda Hai collected Rs 36.54 crore on Monday (which was a Christmas holiday) bringing the grand total to Rs 151.47 crore, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh:
#TigerZindaHai is setting NEW BENCHMARKS... Does PHENOMENAL biz on Mon [#Christmas]… Crosses ₹ 150 cr on Day 4... Is UNSTOPPABLE... Fri 34.10 cr, Sat 35.30 cr, Sun 45.53 cr, Mon 36.54 cr. Total: ₹ 151.47 cr. India biz. #TZH— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) December 26, 2017
Though Tiger Zinda Hai, which Yash Raj Films made on a budget of Rs 150 crore, is performing well worldwide, the film did not get too many good reviews. Saibal Chatterjee in his review for NDTV wrote: "If Tiger Zinda Hai roars loud enough at the box-office, we've got to live with it."
Salman Khan's fist release of the year - Tubelight - failed to fetch good box office number but Tiger Zinda Hai seems to be compensating for that.
