Will there be a miracle on Eid?
Salman Khan has been making records since 2008 on Boxoffice, but this time he is shocked by his fans. Mostly, all his movies cross the mark of 100 crores within 3 days. This is the rarest of the rare case when Salman’s movie is not performing up to the mark. The film Tubelight earned only Rs 42 crores during the first two days. After this, on the third day that was on Sunday the film earned Rs 22.47 crores. In this way, tubelight’s total collection on first weekend was Rs 64.77 crores. However, due to Eid celebrations on Monday, it is been predicted that the film will boost its earnings.
First shock on Eid
This is the worst Eid in the last 10 years for Salman Khan as far as Box Office is taken into account. In 2011 Salman Khan earned Rs 88.75 crores with ‘Bodygaurd’ in the first 5 days. In 2012, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ entered the 100 crore list in the first 5 days. In 2014, Kick earned 88.83 crores in just 3 days. Bajrangi Bhaijan in 2015 crossed the 100 crore mark in only 3 days and in 2016, Sultan earned Rs 105.53 crores at the end of 5th day.
It has been predicted that Eid may boost up Tubelight’s earnings from Tuesday. This means that Tubelight can come on Bajrangi Bhaijan’s and Sultan’s track after 5 days of release.
Poor reviews can make a loss
The reviews for tubelight, being poor can make a huge loss to the film. The predictions of boosting the earnings can be failed due to these reviews. On the other hand, Salman Khan believes that reviews rarely affects his films. He said that he has expected more less ratings, even in minus by the critics. Now, he will be hoping for better performance of his film after the Eid celebrations on Monday.
