Khan's recent release Ek Tha Tiger, which had collected Rs
194.84 crores in three weeks, has suffered a severe setback at the
Box Office in the fourth weekend. Its collection has been affected
by new release Raaz 3, which has completely sent down its
business, shattering its dream to cross Rs 200 crore mark at the
Indian collection centres in the fourth weekend.
Due to the wide release of the horror film Raaz 3,
Ek Tha Tiger lost a large amount of screens at the
domestic market. Secondly, the collection of Salman-Katrina starrer
was affected by the good opening of Emraan-Bipasha starrer movie.
The romantic action flick just managed to add Rs 2.5 crores nett to
its 23 day total Rs 197.14 crores nett. The breakup of its fourth
weekend collection is Rs 47 lakhs on Fri, Rs 77 lakhs on Sat and Rs
1.12 cr on Sun.
Ek Tha Tiger was expected to surpass Rs 200 crore mark
at the Indian Box Office in the fourth weekend. But now, its dream
seems to be very remote as its collection has been slowed down
considerably. The movie needs nearly Rs 3 crores to cross this mark
and it might collect another Rs 1.5 crore in the weekdays.
However, Ranbir Kapoor's much-awaited movie Barfi is
releasing in the coming weekend and it will surely snatch some
screens from the movie Ek Tha Tiger, which will further
slide down in the fifth weekend. Let us see whether it will be able
to cross the Rs 200 crore mark in the next weekend. Stay locked to
this space to read more updates on its business.
