salman khan tiger zinda hai box office Tiger Zinda Hai has begun 2018 in a spectacular fashion.

Tiger Zinda Hai, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, opened 2018 with an absolute crackerjack of a collection. The film has until Tuesday earned Rs 280.62 crore. This is the second week of Ali Abbas Zafar’s actioner and Tuesday was the first working day after the long holiday period including Christmas and New Year, but it hardly seems like that as the Salman-Katrina film raked in Rs 7.83 crore yesterday. Well, this is Salman Khan’s immense star power. As the saying goes, love him or hate him, you cannot ignore him.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted today’s figures. “First working day after a long holiday period [Christmas and New Year], yet #TigerZindaHai remains SUPER-STRONG on its second Tue… [Week 2] Fri 11.56 cr, Sat 14.92 cr, Sun 22.23 cr, Mon 18.04 cr, Tue 7.83 cr. Total: ₹ 280.62 cr. India biz. #TZH” he said.

Tiger Zinda Hai is the sequel to 2012’s Ek Tha Tiger that was directed by Kabir Khan, and it has demolished its prequel in every way, be it reviews or box office performance. To give you an idea, Ek Tha Tiger’s lifetime earning was Rs 198 crore, and the sequel went past it in a few days.

Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given it an average review and had also compared it to Malayalam film Take Off, which was also based on the same situation regarding Indian nurses stranded in Iraq. “2016 Malayalam film Take Off was a terrific re-creation of that very same knife-edge situation, and the bravery-in-the-face-of-certain-death shown by the nurses, spearheaded by Parvathy. Tiger Zinda Hai uses it simply as a peg to get Salman center-stage, only occasionally deigning to share the screen with Kaif (who has a terrific action sequence all to herself), and his cohorts (Mishra, Bedi and company). A menacing bearded type who goes by the name of Abu Usman (Delfroz) marches about, giving orders to shoot and kill, and the Americans, played by the most inept actors, as usual are the biggest losers,” she had said.

With little competition, Tiger Zinda Hai’s juggernaut is unlikely to face any opposition until the Republic Day, when Aiyaary and PadMan will release.

                News reports are trickling down on the eve as also in the beginning of 2018 to say that most of films in India are making record earnings. Tiger Zinda Hai is said to be one such film. Aptly and closely relevant to this scenario in Indian cinema , readers may like to read this Vedic astrology writer’s following prediction in article - “ Astrologically speaking , some highlights for India in coming year 2018” - published at theindiapost on 19 October , 2017 : - “ The year 2018 looks to be bringing to focus themes of ……………Economy may pass through tense times on more than one front except art , entertainment , cinema , creative or innovative talents which may do well to contribute whatever to the economy”.
