an earth-shattering response with its collection reaching Rs 32.92
crore nett on the opening day. Salmania continued throughout the

Usually, movie business goes down by more than 50% on weekdays.
But due to Eid holiday, Ek Tha Tiger registered a good
occupancy in theatres across the country on Monday too. Eid
festivities were extended to next three days and the movie
continued to do very good collection at the Box Office on Tuesday
The break of its weekdays collection is Rs 20.68 cr on Mon, Rs
16.31 cr on Tue and Rs 10.45 cr on Wed. According to trade experts,
so far no movies had a chance to do such a wonderful business on
the weekdays. Ek Tha Tiger has done it and with this, the
film has crossed 150 crore mark at the desi Box Office in eight
However, Ek Tha Tiger has shattered all records of previous blockbuster films like Ra.One, Agneepath, 3 Idiots, Dabangg and Bodyguard. The movie has beaten the lifetime collection of Dabangg, which had collected Rs 147 crores at the desi Box Office. Trade analyst feel that it has set a new collection record, which is difficult to break for any superstar except Salman Khan himself.
