‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ beats ‘Golmaal Again’! Becomes the highest Bollywood grosser of 2017
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s magic has worked wonderfully at the box office. Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ started on a brilliant note commercially and continued its great run on weekdays too.
The film on Thursday collected approx. Rs 15.75 crore, taking the first week total to Rs 206.25 crore. In just seven days, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer has beaten the lifetime collection of Ajay Devgn-starrer ‘Golmaal Again’. Till date it was the Rohit Shetty directorial which was the highest Bollywood grosser of 2017 with the collection on Rs 205.33 crore, but now it’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.
‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ will surely show a growth at the box office in its second weekend as there’s no competition. Plus, it is still the vacation season going on. If the movie collects around Rs 50 crore in its second weekend, then the lifetime surely looks around or more than Rs 300 crore.
While Salman has balanced the year with a flop (‘Tubelight’) and a blockbuster, ‘TZH’ is surely the hit that Katrina Kaif required. (Also Read: Tiger Zinda Hai movie review: Tiger is back with a lot of swag in this massy entertainer)
