Salman’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ Earns Massive Opening Of 2017
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ is unstoppable in the box office at the end of the current year and the film is jumping the mighty $20 million USD mark at the worldwide box office.
After posting three-day weekend earnings on Sunday with $17.53 million in global ticket sales. It is Bollywood’s best showing of 2017.
After the debacle Tubelight for Khan and Jagga Jasoos for Kaif earlier this year, Tiger Zinda Hai has presented a perfect holiday gift to the stars.
Opening in 4,600 screens nationwide, Tiger Zinda Hai, a sequel to spy drama Ek Tha Tiger, nabbed the best opening of the year with $5.31 million on Friday, surpassing Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again’s opening day earning of $4.7 million.
One victor this year was S.S. Rajamouli’s tentpole Baahubali 2, which grossed a mind-boggling $6.4 million on its first day. But it’s worth noting that it is a Telegu film, dubbed in Hindi.
Tiger Zinda Hai should easily recover its production cost of $23 million USD in the first week.
The film embarks on a journey with Zoya -Kaif to rescue Indian nurses abducted by a jihadist group in Iraq that winningly indicates one route out of the region’s political conflict.
The plot is largely based on the abduction of 46 Indian nurses by Daesh militants and held in captivity in war-ravaged Iraq for 23 days in 2014.
Playing on India-Pakistan camaraderie when the relations between the two neighboring countries are at an all-time low.
