Ek Tha Tiger will enjoy a long weekend of four to five days. In our multiplex, weare going to have 23 shows every dayin five screens. We will have a family entertainer after a long time, sothe audience will respond. Thefilm’s first-day collections will be nothing less than Rs 20-30 crore.But I think pan-India; business shouldbe over Rs 60 crore. As far as the film’slifetime collection is concerned, it will definitely cross Rs 100 crore plus.
There are alot of enquiriesabout the filmand we too havehigh hopes fromthis film. Its firstdaycollectionin our multiplex will be Rs 7-8 lakh andits first weekend Rs 20 lakh. We expectEk tha Tiger’s collections to cross theRs 100-crore benchmark as SalmanKhan has proved himself with films likeDabangg, Ready and Bodyguard.
Ever sinceYash Raj signedSalman Khan forEk Tha Tiger, thefilm has createdwaves. It will bethe first time wewill be seeingSalman Khan ina Yash Raj film. Both of them have theirown kind of audience – Salman Khanhas his own fan following and familieslove watching YRF films. So expectationsare very high. I think the film’sfirst-day collections will be Rs 15-20crore. On its first weekend, which is sixdays long, business should easily crossRs 100 crore. During its first week (tillanother film releases on Friday), themovie will earn up to Rs 130 crore.
Ek Tha Tiger will definitely cross Rs 100crore on its firstweekend as it’s asix-day weekend. Also, it’s been along time sinceSalman Khan andKatrina Kaif wereseen together. EkTha Tiger is anaction film but it’s different from Khan’sprevious films. That’s why the audienceis very excited. On its first day, the movie will break many records and will cross Rs25 crore as it is releasing in more screens.It’s hard to say whether it will break the 3Idiots record for lifetime collections. But it will definitely break Khan’s own records.
There are a lot of inquires about thefilm. We are goingto have 15 to16 shows for EkTha Tiger everyday, startingfrom 6.30 am.We are highlydependent onthis film for ourmonthly collections. The shows, fromAugust 15 to 20, will be packed forsure. I am also dead sure this film willclock a lifetime collection of more thanRs 100 crore.
