Tiger Zinda Hai Box-Office Collection, Day 1: Salman Records HIGHEST Opening Of His Career, Film MINTS Rs 35 Crore

If you thought Tubelight could hamper Salman’s popularity, take a look at the box-office opening of his film, Tiger Zinda Hai....

Tiger is BACK and how! Salman Khan has recorded his career’s highest opening with Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai starring Katrina Kaif. The film has opened to a massive figure of Rs 35 crore (early estimates) making it Bollywood’s highest opener ever, second to  Prabhas-Anushka Shetty starrer Bahubali 2 (Rs 41 crore), which was a Tamil film.

This is a big achievement for the entire team as not only for Salman, but the film was also important for Ali Abbas Zafar, whose last film Sultan was a huge hit as well. Expectations riding on him were quite high as he had taken the reigns from Kabir Khan, who directed the first instalment, Ek The Tiger, (Rs 32.93 crore) a huge box-office money-spinner.

The reviews coming in for the film are extremely positive as well. Both masses and critics have given the film thumbs up. SpotboyE.com Editor, Vickey Lalwani reviewed the film and rated it 3.5 stars, assuring a magnificent opening of the film.

“I wouldn't mind betting my last shirt that the foursome (Abbas, Salman, Kat, Adi) did not sleep a wink last night. But now they can cushion themselves to brace the cold tonight, and wake up tomorrow to see the magnificent Day 1 collection, which wouldn't amass only if our janta jaani janardhan wants to see just rubbish. Ji haan, Tiger Zinda Hai. And he killed the wolves. Or, is the urban dictionary phrase 'he killed it'?” he wrote.

Well, this is just the beginning. Let’s see which all records Salman breaks with his latest offering with Ms. Kaif.
