Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s spy thriller Tiger Zinda Hai is having a dream run at the box office. The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial has earned Rs 173.07 crore in just five days. The film is expected to cross the lifetime business of Ek Tha Tiger, the first installment of the YRF franchise, in its first week itself. The total box office collection of Ek Tha Tiger was 198.73 crore.
Tiger Zinda Hai sees former flames Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif play RAW and ISI agents, respectively. With no big release in the coming weeks, the romantic actioner is expected to mint money at the box office.
Overwhelmed with the success of his film, Salman Khan thanked all his fans in a statement. He said, “I thank my fans and audiences for showering so much love on Tiger Zinda Hai. It was an extremely challenging shoot for the entire crew given we had to pull off some incredible action sequences sometimes in the blistering heat and then in the freezing cold and the love that the movie is getting right now only validates the effort that everyone had put in to make Tiger Zinda Hai a really good entertainer.”
Yesterday on Salman Khan’s birthday ,Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and Bhushan Kumar’s T-series declared that they will join hands to produce Bharat, Salman’s next big project — an adaptation of the 2014 South Korean film ‘Ode To My Father’.
Bharat will again have Salman working under the direction of Ali Abbas Zafar, the man who has churned out two other big hits with the actor in Tiger Zinda Hai and Sultan.
Bharat is slated to release on Eid, 2019.
