The Box Office India report also stated that Tiger Zinda Hai's advance booking picked momentum only a day before the release so it is possible that it may not be able to beat Baahubali 2's opening day collection record of Rs 40 crore. "The advance of Tiger Zinda Hai hit real blockbuster momentum pretty late and if that continues into tomorrow then anything is possible," the report said. It is also a non-holiday release but according to Box Office India, escalated ticket prices will compensate for the drop in footfall.
But the early reviews of Salman Khan's film are not in its favour. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee says that film is "targeted" at fans of the Dabangg actor and lack logic. "If Tiger Zinda Hai roars loud enough at the box office, we've got to live with it," he wrote, giving the film 2-star rating.
Can reviews turn Tiger Zinda Hai's game? We will know only when the opening day collection is revealed. Tiger Zinda Hai is a sequel to 2012's Ek Tha Tiger, which was a stupendous hit.
