Released on 4,600 screens in India, the film then saw a record single-day collection for any Hindi film, bagging Rs45.5 crore nett on 24 December, beating the Rs41.29 crore nett achieved by Aamir Khan's Dangal (2016) on its third day, which was Christmas day a year ago.
Interestingly, Salman Khan has three of his films in Top-5 while Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have a film apiece. The Ali Abbas Zafar-directorial took the box office by storm. It has already surpassed the Rs 100 crore mark in just three days, so it will be fair for fans to expect that the film will collect more Rs 200 crore by the wrap of the first week. Notably, the film held second position in the list of all-time opening weekend records. It managed to do better overseas, minting Rs 1.01 crore on the day of its release in Australia and Rs 38.54 lakhs in New Zealand.
Many critics have dubbed Tiger Zinda Hai the "ultimate masala entertainer" of the year. Taking the total collections of the film to Rs.114.93 crore and thus making it the highest earning Bollywood film on a weekend.
Again keeping Baahubali 2 aside, TZH is the highest opener for a Hindi film in 2017. East-West-North-South, the business witnesses remarkable growth. While Salman Khan was present, leading lady Katrina Kaif gave a miss to it. Metros and beyond metros, multiplexes and single screens - it's creating havoc. Its performance in the domestic market isn't out yet, but according to Rentrak, it has minted Rs 3.29 crore this weekend in the US.
