This is really very disappointing for the fans of Salman Khan that year’s one of the much awaited movies of their favorite star, Tubelight is not getting much response at box office as compare to the earlier expectations. Due to its initial buzz, it started on an excellent note on Friday but settled down so early despite positive reviews. Unfortunately Tubelight received mixed reviews from critics, also due to pre Eid time, it recorded lower footfalls in theaters than expected and remained almost flat over the weekend at box office.
The below-expectations performance of the movie is very disappointing for fans as well as it’s entire team. In its first weekend, Tubelight reported the second highest opening weekend collection of year so far with the amount of 64.77 cr, that includes 21.15 cr of Friday, 21.17 cr of Saturday and 22.45 cr of Sunday from 4350 screens. Although the collection of the movie is strong enough, but as compare to Salman Khan’s previous offerings, it is quite low.
Now the movie has entered in weekdays and unfortunately witnessing very low response of audience. On Monday it faced more than 8% of drop in its business and minted the amount of 19.09 crores as its 4th day collection. On the next day i.e. Tuesday, it reported almost similar response and added slightly lesser amount of 12 crores as its 5th day collection. On Wednesday too, it faced more drop and added the amount of 6.50 crores to its account.
After its 6th day, total domestic collection of Kabir Khan’s directorial Tubelight is recorded as 102.36 cr. While it has indeed turned out to be a huge underperformer, in all certainty he would strike back with his much massy Tiger Zinda Hai in Christmas this year. Yes, Salman Khan has seen a low with Tubelight but there is a lot more up his sleeves in months to come.
