Tubelight Box Office Collection Update: Struggle nears its end

When ‘Tubelight’ released in theatres during the Eid weekend, the absolute least that the trade expected out of the film was a 200-225 crore grosser. But with the film completing its 10-day run at the box office, ‘Tubelight’ is running on very few shows at multiplexes and the occupancy level for those shows – all across the country – is dismal.

The second weekend collections of a few films in recent times are as follows:

  • Bahubali 2 (Hindi) – 80.75 crore
  • Dangal – 73.7 crore
  • Bajrangi Bhaijaan – 56.1 crore
  • Sultan – 34.07 crore
  • Badrinath Ki Dulhania – 17.56 crore
  • Hindi Medium – 12.14 crore
  • Tubelight – 8 crore (approx)

The above comparison sums up the disastrous trend of ‘Tubelight’, as the second weekend collections is less than 10% of ‘Bahubali 2 (Hindi)’ and half of ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ which was a much smaller film.

The second weekend business of ‘Sultan’ wasn’t excellent last year, the trend wasn’t even close to as good as ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, yet in comparison to the latest Salman Khan Eid release, ‘Sultan’ business was on a different level altogether.

‘Tubelight’ has collected around 115 crore in its first 10 days. It’ll finish with lifetime business in the 120 crore net range, which is just a little better than Jai Ho – the only other under-performing Salman Khan film in the last 7 years.



  • @indicine, Would u answer my question? Now that Salman is to refund 65 Crores to his distributors, it will obviously reduce the losses incurred to them. Does it help a film to have a better verdit because of now less distributors’ losses? Thanks


  • only tubelight can break the record set by baahubali 2. it’s the biggest film of India cinema – Vivek oberoi .

    it’s foregone conclusion that tubelight will beat Raees within 5 days of its release,megastar has never disappointed during Eid – indicine.


  • Raees 2nd weekend -11.5 crore despite its 2nd weekend was from day 10- 12 and competing against big film Kaabil.
    Here normal weekend having no major competition from Bollywood but still 8 crores.
    Very very very disappointed !!!


  • Despite rejected outright by all other audiences and panned by critics and media, it had a 65 Crores pre-Eid non Holiday weekend and will still do 125-130 Crores.
    It’s not a small feat but a monumental tasks had any other super star been in his place.


  • I still dont want Salman to go back to masala entertainer like Dabang 3 which is now being rumored to be releasing on EID 2018. Dabang 3 is not going to work in today’s time how hard anyone may try. And as rumored, if Prabhu Deva directs it, it will be another setback for SK on EID 2018. He must choose scripts wisely which can cater to his mass audience as well as can bring family audiences in multiplexes for his movies. I still have high hopes on TZH but will not be surprised if too fairs average at the box office because ETT was a mediocre product and did not require a sequel. ETT worked due to some good action scenes, excellent trailer and good promotion strategy but ETT does not have a high recall value.


  • Graciously accepting this failure, we are now looking forward to earth shattering TZH.

    Then, spineless idiotic kritiks will be bashing Salman for doing films in his comfort zone.


  • Has Tubelight’s underperformance really changed anything? 0 votes
    Let’s talk with statistics (opening numbers)………..

    Highest first day – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first weekend – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first week – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first day WW – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first weekend WW – Salman Khan starrer

    Highest first Week WW – Salman Khan starrer.
    All the morons who are relentlessly blabbering on Tubelight must shut their mouth. Even after Tubelight’s failure Bhai is light years ahead of others (as far as opening numbers are concerned)..


  • Shocking numbers !
    Film is not dat Bad but I think SalmanFans didn’t like dis plot
    Seriously mein SS ME gaya #Tubelight dekhne
    N Salman Fans r making crazy noise in D beginning but afterwards dey r actually disappointed big time n started to irritate others who r actually watching D film
    I NVR witnessed dis much of negativity during a FirstDay show among audience
    N also post #Bahubaali audience wants something big frm EventFilms I guess
    So overall dis s pretty disappointing dat whenever some big star wants 2 do something diff in our country we didn’t appreciate their effort
    I think Salman /SRK ko aisi filmein bar bar karni chahiye BO ka lalach bhul ke.


  • Still other stars leave Eid & Christmas for him solo & fight on a normal weekends. When no one will fight he enjoys monopoly & then social media say megastar is back… Loll…


  • Out of top 20 highest openers 8 are Salman Khan starrers.

    Out of Top 20 highest weekend 9 are Salman Khan starrers.

    Out of top 20 highest first week collections 8 are Salman Khan starrers.

    Bollywood’s top 2 highest opening day still belong to Salman Khan.

    Out of bollywood’s 10 bumper openers of the decade 5 belong to Salman Khan.

    Out of top 15 Khans openers 8 are Salman Khan starrers.
    And some morons are trying to troll Bhai just bcz of one Tubelight..


  • everytime his fan came with so much negativity for srk even knowing that srk facing his bad phase every actor in recent time who clashed with srk got huge support from sallu fans and creat lots of negativity against srk

    srk’s dilwale with less than half screen of tubelight clashed against a big budget extremely postive wom movie did near 150cr domestic and 190cr plus overseas and did greater bussiness in ww but still haters were saying that srk is finished than what is their views on tubelight which is fail everywhere despite huge screen solo festive realised date ????

    that you guys came again to support kabil in front of raees but you know what once a superstar always a superstar srk against all odd like ban clash negatives stand strong and earn greater than other in every where domestic overseas and ww

    so dear this is srk for you in his bad phase he is capable to how to clash and deal with hatters i always said that dear srk bad phase is still better than some of golden phases star so don’t under estimate him
