This Christmas weekend will saw the biggest release of the year. Tiger Zinda Hai features Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif and is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
2017 turned out to be an average year for Bollywood. The highest grosser of the year is Golmaal Again which collected 200 crores plus. None of the releases could even cross 150 crores mark. Now all eyes are on Tiger Zinda Hai to provide some much-needed relief to distributors and exhibitors.
With Tiger Zinda Hai, Salman Khan will be returning to his favourite genre which will appeal to each section of the audience. The film has action, romance, drama, dance and songs. The promos have been loved and the two tracks from the film have become huge chartbusters.
Advance booking has also received an excellent response. Also, Salman’s core following is in masses which does spot booking. The advance does not give you a clear picture for masala films. Golmaal Again had a low advance yet it opened to 29 crores. Though it was a Diwali holiday and here it is a normal working day.
Considering all the factors, we are expecting the film to open at 38.50 crores. Thus it will be the highest opener of 2017 and also highest non-holiday opener of all time.
