Finally, Salmania, which was at the peak a few weeks ago, is now at rest. The roaring of Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger (ETT) has been completely silenced at the Box Office in India in the fifth week. The business of the movie was affected by the new releases like Ranbir Kapoor's Barfi and Bipasha Basu's Raaz 3.
For three weeks, Ek Tha Tiger did wonderful collection at the domestic Box Office. Until the release of Raaz 3, the movie was not even affected by Akshay Kumar's Joker. Raaz 3 snatched some of the screens from Ek Tha Tiger, thereby sending down its collections to bottom line. Salman-Katrina starrer had collected Rs 3.5 crores nett at the desi collection centres in the fourth week.
Ek Tha Tiger had to give away few more screens to most-anticipated Hindi movie Barfi starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz. With this, its business completely collapsed at the Box Office. It could not even collect Rs 1 crore in fifth week. It has just added Rs 72 lakhs to its 37-day total Rs 199.11 crore nett.
However, Ek Tha Tiger has become an all time blockbuster movie in just couple of weeks. It was expected to cross Rs 200 crore mark at the domestic Box Office. Now, it has come very closer to the bench mark and it needs just Rs 89 lakhs. It should be seen whether it will surpass the record in sixth week.
