Salman Khan’s Tubelight has dropped further a day after the Eid holiday. The film collected Rs 12 crore on Tuesday, to take its 5-day business to around the 95 crore mark.
In comparison, Salman’s 2014 Eid release ‘Kick’ collected Rs 21.66 crore on the day after the Eid holiday – which would probably be equivalent to 23-24 crore of business after adjusting for higher ticket prices this year. So in real terms, Tubelight on its 5th day has collected almost half of Kick on its 6th day.
The poor trend over the 4-day extended weekend sealed the fate of the film, which is now looking at lifetime business of somewhere in the 135-140 crore range. It would still need to hold fairly well in the second weekend to beat Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and become the highest Hindi grosser of the year so far (not including the dubbed film Bahubali 2: The Conclusion).
In other words, the lifetime business of ‘Tubelight’ is likely to be lower than the 4-day collections of Salman’s last Eid release ‘Sultan’ which collected Rs 142.15 crore in its first 4 days.
