Salman Khan’s first Tuesday collections do not look promising. In fact, film’s collection has fallen yet again. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Tubelight Fri 21.15 cr, Sat 21.17 cr, Sun 22.45 cr, Mon 19.09 cr [Eid], Tue 12 cr. Total: ₹ 95.86 cr. India biz.” Though the film is expected to collect Rs 100 crores in the first week, it is not performing as well as Salman’s earlier Eid releases.

Salman Khan’s film relied heavily on the festival of Eid. Unlike its opening day collection which was below expectations, the makers were looking for some good news. But sadly, it only managed to rake in Rs 19.09 crore on the day of Eid, a very low figure for a Salman Khan film in the recent years. The superstar’s dominates this big holiday weekend every year. And 2017 could’ve been equally celebratory for him. However, the harsh reviews from the critics and word-of-mouth on its release day rained on Kabir Khan’s film’s parade. The film has not even managed to cross Rs 100 crore despite being in the theatres for five days now, which has been a regular feature for any of Salman’s Eid release. It stands at a total of Rs 83 crore in four days and is likely to earn about Rs 12-13 crore on Tuesday which was the start of work week for people in India after Eid holiday.

The film is expected to earn a total of about Rs 95 crore after the Tuesday tally. The total Tubelight box office collection of Salman Khan’s Tubelight is expected to be Rs 150 crore, according to trade estimates. Meanwhile, the film has generated an estimated $1.2 million in five days in the US while it has eared $A392,000 ($297,000) on 42 screens in Australia, according to Forbes.

Tubelight earned Rs 21.15 crore at the BO on Friday. The figures remained almost same even on the following days. Saturday’s collections were Rs 21.17 crore, while Sunday recorded Rs 22.45 crore. But the numbers plummeted on Monday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared Tubelight’s box office report on his Twitter page. Taran had also expressed surprise over the film failing to touch Rs 30 crore on any single day till now. He tweeted, “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]… #Tubelight has underperformed on Eid… Generally, Salman films set new records/do roaring biz on Eid, but it’s an exception this time…”

Tubelight is Salman’s first film in the past five years to end up with such meager figures. His last year release Sultan earned Rs 105.53 crore in three days, the actor’s best among his Eid releases so far. Bajrangi Bhaijaan stood at a close second with Rs 102.60 crore for three days, followed by Ek Tha Tiger at Rs 100.16 crore.

Tubelight has also earned $1 million in the US (app Rs 6.62 crore). Though the numbers look decent, the film is facing a tough competition from Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham aka DJ in the US. This Telugu film is also tough competition for Tubelight back home. The movie which released with Salman Khan film, collected Rs 24 crore on its opening day, as against the latter’s Rs 21.15 crore. The Allu Arjun film is also inching towards Rs 100 crore soon.

A section of the audience and Salman’s loyal fans are questioning whether the heavy criticism from industry experts was the main reason behind Tubelight ending up flickering at the box office, others claim that the audience is smart enough to decide, and that the film’s weak script and Salman’s non-convincing act lead to the film’s bad collections. Many expected the film to pick up post Eid. However, its dismal performance doesn’t seems to get any respite in the coming days.
