This is a very rare time for Salman Khan’s film wherein the box office is not getting set on fire, despite Tubelight releasing during Eid festival, Salman’s favorite release slot. From advanced booking to opening day, the audience response for the movie has been only good but not at all great.
Tubelight collected 21.15 crore on Friday. The scenario on 2nd day (1st Saturday) is almost same as its opening day. The growth in footfalls has been decent till afternoon but nothing like Salman Khan’s previous films. Poor reviews and negative word of mouth are hurting the earnings of Tubelight.
Being a Saturday, many working class population and families might turn up for the film in evening which can give a boost for Tubelight’s collections. Overall, the response has been majorly from North India.
Tubelight can collect upto 23-24 crore on Saturday if evening and night shows pick up pace otherwise its earnings will be in the same range as its 1st day or even lower than 20 crore. All eyes are on 4th day which is an Eid holiday. It can take the best numbers on that day.
Tubelight also stars Sohail Khan, Zhu, Zhu, Matin Rey Tangu and Om Puri and it is directed by Kabir Khan. It is a story of two brothers and their emotional bond during the Indo-China war of 1962.
