Salman Khan’s Tubelight was supposed to bounce back on Eid at the box office. After all, Salman’s films are synonymous with the festival and have made record earnings on the same day in past. However, Tubelight seems to have bucked the trend as it actually saw a dip in collection on Monday. With this, the fate of the film also seems to be sealed and chances of it becoming a ‘Salman Khan blockbuster’ are bleak. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures on Tuesday, “#Tubelight Fri 21.15 cr, Sat 21.17 cr, Sun 22.45 cr, Mon 19.09 cr [Eid]. Total: ₹ 83.86 cr. India biz.” He also added how Tubelight has underperformed, “#Tubelight has underperformed on Eid… Generally, Salman films set new records/do roaring biz on Eid, but it’s an exception this time… What’s surprising is that #Tubelight hasn’t crossed ₹ 30 cr *on a single day* till now… Not on Sun… Not even on Mon [Eid holiday]…”

Salman Khan gave the Eidi to his fans like every year in the form of Tubelight. But this time, it wasn’t as sweet a gift as it mostly turns out to be. Despite Salman keeping his date with the festival of Eid, his big ticket film only managed to collect Rs 21.15 crore on Friday. The figures did not see much growth over the next two days. Its opening weekend collection stood at a total of Rs 64.77 crore, which is the lowest for any of Salman’s Eid releases in the last five years. Its Eid collection is also among the lowest a Salman Khan film has seen.

Trade tracker Ramesh Bala also wrote, “Tubelight Jun 23rd – 25th WW BO: #India : Nett – ₹ 64.77 cr Gross – ₹ 93.26 cr Overseas – ₹ 22.55 cr Total – ₹ 115.81 cr.” The film has also earned $1 million in the US (app Rs 6.62 crore). While the numbers in itself are good, they are tepid compared to what a Salman Khan film is expected to earn.

Here is the day to day break-up of Tubelight box office collection…

June 23: Rs 21.15 crore
June 24: Rs 21.17 crore
June 25: Rs 22.45 crore
June 26: Rs 19.09 crore
Domestic nett collection: Rs 64.77 cr
Worldwide gross collection: Rs 115.81 cr

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Monday, “#Tubelight Fri 21.15 cr, Sat 21.17 cr, Sun 22.45 cr. Total: ₹ 64.77 cr. India biz… Eid festivities should boost biz today + tomorrow.” He also tweeted the figures of Salman’s Eid films from 2011 to 2016. The list shows Sultan earning the highest in its opening weekend – Rs 105.53 crore while Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) collecting Rs 102.60 crore. Tubelight surely lags behind by a big margin.

Tubelight has, however, registered the second highest opening this year, staying only behind SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali 2’s Hindi version which collected Rs 41 crore. But Salman Khan film’s second day collection fell short of Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees. While Raees collected Rs 26.3 crore, Tubelight stood at Rs 21.17 crore on its day 2. But Tubelight has managed to break the records of many other releases this year including Arjun Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend and Sachin: A Billion Dreams and Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2.

With the nation celebrating Eid on Monday, trade pundits are expecting a growth in Tubelight’s collections.
