Now, when the reports about the first day collection of Salman Khan starrer ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is out, the only question that remains in the frame is whether it will become the highest grossing Bollywood film of all time or not.
As per trade analyst Taran Adarsh, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ has opened to packed houses. He tweets, “Okay, here’s the *actuals* of #EkThaTiger on Wednesday: Rs 32.92 cr nett on 3300 screens in India. Beyond Historic!”.
As a result, the film has succeeded in beating Agneepath‘s record first day collections of Rs 25 crores, which was the biggest opening for a Hindi film until now.
Director Kabir Khan was ecstatic with the numbers. “We very happy,” he gushes over the phone. “It’s a mind-boggling opening. I never predicted any figures but this is beyond belief. I am happy that people have loved the film.”
The director claimed he was not competing with any other film. “I am not comparing my film’s box office collections with any other film’s. We are sitting on a good amount. I am sure this good run will continue at the box office.”
The film received mixed reviews on its release but the enthusiasm of Salman Khan’s fans made it a successful film on the very first day.
Salman has played a RAW agent in the film while Katrina Kaif portrays the role of his love interest.
The film has been praised for breathtaking action sequences and exotic locales.
