Salman Khan's recent release Ek Tha Tiger has continued to get a good response at the Box Office in India. The romantic action movie has done a very good business in the third weekend when compared to new release Joker starring Akshay Kumar. But this weekend collection did not help the film to cross Rs 200 crore mark at the collection centres in the country.
The business of Ek Tha Tiger was expected to be affected by Akshay-Sonakshi starrer Joker at the Box Office this weekend. But negative reviews and bad word of mouth for Joker paved way for Salman-Katrina starrer to rock the viewers once again. Ek Tha Tiger remained first choice for many film goers. This is the reason for its good business at the ticket windows in India.
Ek Tha Tiger had collected Rs 100+ crore in the five day extended first weekend and its business fell down by 80% in the second weekend with its collection reaching Rs 21 crore nett. The movie seemed to be affected by Joker on its third Friday, but its business witnessed a big jump on Saturday and Sunday, which helped it to fetch good figures in the third weekend.
However, Ek Tha Tiger had collected Rs 184.83 crore nett at the Indian Box Office in 16 days and it needed to collect Rs 15+ crore to surpass the 200 crore mark at the domestic collection centre. But the film added Rs 7.75 crore nett to its 19 day total collection Rs 192.58 crore nett. The breakup of its third weekend collection Rs 1.25 cr on Fri, Rs 3 cr on Sat and Rs 3.5 cr on Sun.
It should be seen whether Ek Tha Tiger will be able to cross Rs 200 crore mark in the coming weekend. Stay locked to this space to read more updates on its collection.
