It has happened once in this decade that Salman Khan’s film has not got a massive response; in fact the response for Tubelight is weakest among his films in recent years. From poor reviews, negative word of mouth to low footfalls even on Eid holiday, showed that nothing seemed to working in favor of the film.
Tubelight collected 106.86 crore (nett.) in India in 1st week, the gross collections are those are around 150 crore. The film has not performed in overseas markets too, bring in merely 25 crore. So Tubelight’s worldwide box office total so far is around 175 crore.
In coming days, it should touch the 200 crore mark but after that, it can’t go further. 2nd weekend is the last chance for the film in India to collect some decent amount. Its collections have already dropped and is earning in the range of 4-6 crore.
Even 150 crore mark in India is not looking possible for Tubelight. Its emotional content didn’t connect with the audience. Let’s see how much further it goes.
Directed by Kabir Khan, it also stars Sohail Khan, Om Puri, Matin Rey Tangu and Zhu Zhu. It is based on 1962’s Indo-China war and it shows an emotional bond between two brothers.
