Salman Khan and Eid: A Box Office Love Story

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Salman Khan owns Eid and there is no denying this fact. Eid is considered as the second best release period after Christmas. That is mainly because Muslims stay away from theatres during the whole month of Ramadan. This results in a huge boost to Eid which is a national holiday.

In recent years, Eid is associated with a Salman release. In fact, it was Salman who made Eid a lucrative period when he started the trend of Eid release in 2009 with Wanted. Since then, he has only missed it once in 2013 when he did not have any release. Almost all of his films have opened well and some of them were record openers.

Take a look at his recent Eid releases.

Salman Khan and Eid: A Box Office Love Story

By looking at the list it is clear that a blockbuster is given for Salman Khan on Eid. The opening of films was historic on holidays and was excellent on a normal Friday. (Dabangg and Bodyguard were released on Eid day while Ek Tha Tiger on Independence Day).

Now Salman Khan is back with Tubelight. Interestingly he is working again with Kabir Khan who gave him the first ATBB on Eid. From the promos, it seems that Tubelight is also on the same lines as BB. Now it is yet to be seen if it can match BB in terms of lifetime gross.

What are your expectations from Tubelight? Let us know in the comments section.

    Waiting 2 watch movie…. heaters go away bcz boxoffice strom cmg dis weekend😍😍

    • Just want to make one more statement here. Eid belongs to salman bcoz aamir never tried eid(after 2008).

      Right now u said eid is the second most eid release that is not true. But actually scenario is salman is second most succesful star in bollywood thats why eid is on second right now..

      Best release period right now..

      Christmas:- aamir
      Diwali:-srk + ajay

      Best release period after 2018:-

      Diwali:- aamir
      Eid:- salman

      So u vl realise that it is not about best release factor it is all about actor nd his audience faith on him.

      Mark my word diwali festival is way ahead as compare to eid nd christmas. Nd thugs of hindostan vl prove that.

  2. Bollywood Eid Releases 2001-2010
    1. Highest Grosser of all time In India-Chennai Xpress(Eid 2013)-SRK
    2. Highest Grosser of all time in Overseas-Kabhie Khusie Kabhie Gham-SRK(Eid 2001)
    3. Highest Grosser WW-CE/K3G-SRK/Hritik
    4. Clashes lost:-Salman has lost two Eid clashes(When Deewali-Eid coincided)
    -Kyun Ki vs Garam Masala against Akki
    -Don vs Jaaneman

    So I dont see any lovestory here

    • Abey idiot, read the article again….It was clearly written that Salman makes Eid a lucrative release period in 2009-10. Till 2009-10 there was no concept of Eid release. So there is no point of blabbering those bullshits.

      As far losing a clash is concerned, yupp… Salman lost couple of clashes in past. But he never runs away from any clash unlike your galaxy ka sabse bada bhagoda-star…#Mind it.

      • Tubelight achi movie lag rahi hai . Magar (Tiger -the real king) jaise insecure fans k karan mujhe shak ho raha hai . Bhai is tiger ne har comment pr reply kiya hai. Shows that he is insecure. I like Sallu but Tiger jaise fans k karan uska naam karab ho raha hai.

          • @Tiger theek hai reply krna . I m die hard Akki fan agar koi uske bare mein galat bole to mai bhi reply krunga . But one or two times . Bro again and again looks bad . Some even call u insecure .

  3. this article is nothing new… looks like it was posted just for the sake of it

  4. I don’t think arena why u wrote this article after disaster of fusslight iske haath se eid bhi nikal jaaeyegi

  5. Sallu’s eid graph πŸ“‰

    Poor Sallu fans and Sallu bahu.

    My prediction

    Fusslight – 280cr(20cr manipulation)

    Don’t forget.. mark it. πŸ˜‚

  6. Now for Sallu it’s not box office love story, it’s break up story. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      • @billy the real cat 🐱
        What about marigolds footfall

        And ur Sallu also chasing it(MPK)
        Atleast Aamir gives ATBB N ATHG

        Tera Sallu Kab dega ATHG πŸ˜‚
        Shayad agale janam me.

        • @parshya baby, Bhai’s blockbusters footfalls are higher than your 2008 born aukaatless nata star’s ATBB footfalls…. Eg- Sultan footfalls>>>3 idiots, Dhoom3 etc footfalls. Jitna bada star utna jyada footfalls chahiye movie ko ATBB banane ke liye.

          Not Salman it’s your nata star who is chasing MPK till now…Salman has already crossed 7cr footfalls… But nata star yet cross even 4.1cr footfalls. #Feel the difference you idiot.

          • hahaha..
            bihar me 40rs ka ticket hoga to 10 bar kya 50 bar dekhenge prem ratan bartan dhoke jao ..usme konsi nayi baat hai..

            Aamir jaisa megastar chahiye…log daude chale ate hai movie dekhne ke liye..aur wo bhi without promotion.

            lallu the local flop star..

            tere lallu star bhikari hai…TV pe,cycle pe,idhar udhar ghum ke promotion karta firta hai..lallu serial bhi nahi skip karta..

            Aur fultan ka kaise band bajaya Dangal ne.. shayad uss sadme se tu bahr nahi aaya..

            • u r saying lallu crosses MPK footfalls by HAHB..
              its a madhuri starer DVD HAHB not lallu starer..

              all d movies of lallus in 90’s were multistarer n sallu was supporting non actor.

              what about footfalls of lallus movies in 2000-2009..
              ex.3idiots>>>>>>>lallus all movies btw 2000-2009

            • Why don’t you talk about their overall career? Salman’s debut movie (as lead) MPK footfalls>>>>Aamir’s whole career footfalls… Hahaha.

              Ye apne pure career me Ajay/Akki se bhi kam hit denewala 2008 born aukaatless nata star is a Megastar now…..More jokes plz!

              If HAHK is a Madhuri starrer then Ghajini is a Asin starrer, 3i is a kareena starrer, Dhoom3 is a katrina starrer, Pk is a Anushka starrer and Dangal is a Fatima starrer.. That’s mean nata star hasn’t delivered a single clean hit in the last 10 years…. What a shame!!!

              • @Tiger

                bhai Maine Pyar kiya….ka footfall 4.3/4.5 crore h….or 14 crore kmaye the….

              Too much fun

    • Local star 150cr walo ko bolte hai parshya aamir aur salman to neck 2 neck chal rahe hai pk aur bb ka difference 19cr hai aur bb ke footfall bhi high hai while dangal ka record is baar tubelight tod raha hai footfall ka aur collection ka bhi only salman and aamir have 300cr club in bollywood rest is struggling to touch 200cr so who is local star?

      • SRK has been dominating overseas for 2 decades. He is not 2011 born star like Gangu Teli sallu with 3/4 overseas blockbusters. He is called the world’s biggest moviestar by the westerns, no question of calling him a local star. You better worry about Eid made Gangu Teli sallu.

        • @NN


          west me Srk ki movie 5000 crore kmati h naπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

          jo westners use Biggest movie Star khengeπŸ˜‚

          bhai fact ko dekh….media ki bato me mt aa…..

          only srk jese looser hi media or press ka sahaara lete hπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰

          • Abey bhikhari SRK can buy 100 bhikhari Aamir with his wealth. He doesn’t need media for that. And as for the media, the biggest superstar always gets the biggest coverage, otherwise Sam worthington or bhikhari aamir will be called the biggest star…!!!

            • @NN

              bhai indian media janta h , stk kitna bda bhikhari h….

              or 2 baar US airport pr roka gya h srk…..

              or na hi Aamir , kpil sharma show , reality show , big boss , twitter pr bhikh mangta hπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

              Or Aamir k pass kitna pesa h , ya nhi h , tuje malum hπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚…..

              shadi-party me pese k liye nachne wala Bhikhari kingπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

              • Abey bhojpuri, SRK is a self-made Superstar, not a uncle-fed bhikhari like Aamir. His popularity has demand so he attends TV shows and social media. nobody wants to see bhikhari aamir so only his film’s content has demand. The same officials who detained SRK in US apologised to him and sought his autograph. SRK has been given tribute in one of the oldest Film Festivals in US. Everybody knows what a bhikhari aamir is, his payment is even lower than Toilet Kumar…!!
