If you want to understand the mega stardom of Salman Khan, get this. Despite not performing well at box office, his film Tubelight has still entered the list of ‘Highest 1st Week Grossing Movies of 2017’. This proves why he is one of the most popular actors of Bollywood today.
Where many films earn collect 100 crore in their lifetime, Tubelight has done that in 6 days and in first week, its total is 106.86 crore. Tubelight is now the 3rd Highest Week One Grosser of 2017.
Only Baahubali 2 (Hindi) and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees are ahead of it. Raees enjoyed an extended weekend of Republic Day holiday otherwise Tubelight would have surpassed Raees as well.
The expectations were huge from Tubelight but it failed at box office and is now a flop. There are not much hopes from it in 2nd weekend. All eyes are now on whether Tubelight will beat Raees’ lifetime total of 139 crore in coming days.
Here are the Top 5 Highest 1st Week Grossing Movies of 2017:
Baahubali 2 (Hindi) – 247 crore
Raees (Extd weekend)- 121 crore
Tubelight – 106.86 crore
Kaabil (Extd weekend) – 90.63 crore
Jolly LLB 2 – 77.71 crore
