Salman Khan’s much-awaited film Tubelight which was released last week hasn’t managed to enter the 100 Crore club even on the occassion of Eid. Though Friday and Saturday weren’t really huge, the film at least went past the 20 Crore Mark on both the days. However, this also meant that Sunday and Monday had to be over 30 crore mark if the Salman Khan starrer had to stay on contention for the 100 crore milestone before the weekdays kick-started. Once that didn’t happen on Sunday either, the writing was clear on the wall that even with a big push on Sunday, the film’s 100 crore journey would have to wait for a little while.
This is what’s happening now for the Kabir Khan directed film which gathered 21 crore* on Monday [Eid holiday], hence resulting in an overall nett of 85.77 crore*. The film would eventually go past the 100 crore mark today but by all means, this would be the slowest 100 crore earner for Salman Khan in a really long time, what with five days expected to be consumed for this milestone.
Salman Khan’s Eid release Tubelight is unable to break the box-office records set by his previous blockbuster films, so his last release Sultan remains the highest opening weekend film on Eid with a collection of 108.36 crores.
Though the film’s collections are not up to the mark, it has still managed to become the 6th highest grosser of 2017 in just 4 days. Tubelight has beaten the lifetime biz of Hindi Medium.
