- "I congratulate Katrina for her performance," said Salman
- Adding she's the only reason this movie turned out to be such a hit
- Tiger Zinda Hai is making steady progress towards the Rs 200 crore mark
Tiger Zinda Hai may have opened to middling reviews on Friday but the movie sure did cook up a storm at the box office, scoring over Rs 150 crores in just four days! A further update is awaited on the film's box office numbers, which is making steady progress towards the Rs 200 crore mark. Tiger Zinda Hai is sort of a redemption of sorts for Salman Khan as his last release before this - Tubelight - opened to a rather lukewarm response.
Salman Khan also publicly congratulated the film's cast and crew for their "extraordinary" efforts and this is what he said: "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."
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Tiger Zinda Hai is a sequel of sorts to 2012's Ek Tha Tiger and has Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif reprise their roles as RAW agent Tiger and Pakistani secret service official Zoya respectively.
