The much awaited Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight has released today, and all eyes are set on the Box office. After two blockbusters like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger, this is the third project in which Kabir Khan and Salman teamed up together.
Reports said that Tubelight has released across 10,000 screens worldwide and has received 35-40% opening in the morning shows. According to Business of Cinema, the occupancy in the North has been much better as the main multiplexes in the North have had an occupancy of 50%.
As far as the Box office battle is concerned, Prabhas-starrer Baahubali 2 broke all the records recently, and now it is to be seen whether Tubelight will be able to surpass Baahubali’s records. Baahubali 2 opened a massive opening of 75-80%, which was the biggest opening seen so far in the last decade. The Hindi version of Baahubali 2 did a business of Rs 128 crore in the first three days of its release.
If we talk about the last release of Salman Khan, Sultan did a business of Rs 106 crore, and now let’s see if Salman Khan breaks the record.
Besides Salman Khan, Tubelight stars Sohail Khan, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, Martin Rey Tangu and late Om Puri.
