Salman Khan’s upcoming release Tiger Zinda Hai, directed by his Sultan director Ali Abbas Zaffar hits the theatres on 22nd December 2017 and is the most awaited film of the year. After the debacle of Tubelight where he experimented, Salman Khan is back doing what he does best and that’s action films.
He reinvented himself with Wanted in 2009 and has since broken box office records with different action avatars. Tiger Zinda Hai also reunites him with Katrina Kaif who would also like to taste box office after the failure of Jagga Jasoos. Here are 8 Box Office records that Tiger Zinda Hai can break:
Fastest To Reach 100 Crores- A film’s success is still determined by how soon does it take to cross the 100 Crores barrier and films like Dangal, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Dhoom 3, PRDP, and Happy New Year have done it in 3 days. Can Salman do it in 2?
Highest Opening Weekend- The highest weekend grosser of 2017 is Ajay Devgn starrer Golmaal Again with collections of 87.6 Crores while Happy New Year holds the all-time record with 108.86 Crores. Let’s see if he’s able to break either or both of these records.
Highest One Week Gross- The highest one week collections in 2017 belong to Golmaal Again which raked in 137 Crores. All-time one-week gross belongs to Salman Khan’s Sultan and it grossed 229.16 Crores.
Highest Grossing Christmas Release- Dangal holds the record for the highest-grossing Bollywood film released during Christmas season and it grossed a whopping 385 Crores.
Highest Grossing Film of 2017- The film can easily become the highest grossing film of 2017 and it can break the record of Golmaal again which has grossed 193 Crores to date.
Highest Grossing Film Ever – Now, this would be a tough cookie to crack as Dangal leads with 385 Crores lifetime collections but Salman Khan’s 2 films have earned more than 300 crores, Sultan and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, so it’s not impossible.
Highest Grossing Overseas- This year's highest overseas grosser is Raees starring Shah Rukh Khan which earned 95 Crores while all-time highest overseas grosser is Dangal which has grossed more than 1600 Crores and is still running strong.
Salman Khan’s Highest Grosser- Tiger Zinda Hai can easily become Salman Khan’s highest grosser. Bajrangi Bhaijaan with India collections of 320 crores and a total worldwide gross of 629 Crores is his highest grossing film to date.
