Salman Khan’s Eid release Tubelight’s box-office performance is going down with every passing day. It has been six days since the movie made its way to the theatres but sadly, it has not been able to enter the much coveted 100-crore club which has never been a big deal for Salman’s Eid releases. On Wednesday, the film’s collection dropped further and it could only mint Rs 5.75 crore, taking its total collection to Rs 99 crore in five days. According to a report of Box Office India, the Kabir Khan directorial failed to attract movie buffs to the ticket counters and witnessed a 50% drop in the collection.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the collection of the film till Tuesday, “#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.” Tubelight started off slow but it was expected to make an upward swing in terms of collections on the day of Eid, which fell on Monday. However, the film did not show an impressive run. The reason for the film not finding its way through the audience can also be because Salman’s fans are finding it difficult to accept him in such a mellowed down role, which is far away from his larger-than-life image.

But while the film is barely making any mark as a success story, its songs are not failing to upset the actor’s fans. Interestingly, Tubelight’s song “Radio” has got an Arabic version too.

In terms of box office, the film is facing a tough competition from Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham aka DJ, not only in the country but abroad as well. This is for the first time that another release is standing in the way of Salman Khan. Post Tubelight, Salman will be seen in Tiger Zinda Hai, which also stars Katrina Kaif in the lead role.
