Tiger Zinda Hai has been confidentially nearing the Rs 300 crore mark. But the unrest in certain parts of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, may well disrupt the march of the film into the exclusive Rs 300 crore club.
A trade source says, “Theatres are being wary. They do not want to risk any damage to their property. Many multiplexes did not do well in their morning shows on Wednesday and if the situation is not brought under control, the collections of Tiger Zinda Hai may dip. The film needs to hold good for three to four days now to cross the Rs 300 crore mark. It has crossed Rs 280 crore as of now.”
Only Salman Khan and Aamir Khan are proud members of the Rs 300 club in Bollywood, barring Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which stands at the highest with Rs 511 crore. Aamir Khan’s film PK and Dangal and Salman Khan’s Sultan and Bajrangi Bhaijaan have been a part of the league.
Whether Tiger Zinda Hai still manages to reach the Rs 300 crore mark, remains to be seen.
