Chennai: Salman Khan's Ek Tha
Tiger has got an earth-shattering opening in Chennai. The
movie, which is released in 45 screens in Tamil Nadu, ran to packed
houses in and around the city.
Traders say that as there were no big Tamil releases, Ek Tha
Tiger was grandly welcomed by Tamil audience. It is noted that
very rarely a Hindi movie gets such an opening in the state, as the
Bollywood movies are still not so popular in Tamil Nadu.
While Ek Tha Tiger did an amazing business in and
around Chennai, the other regions got decent response, say traders.
The Salman Khan starrer movie is distributed by Sathyam Cinema and
it is released in 20 screens in Chennai alone. In the recent times,
Shahrukh Khan's Ra.One and Akshay Kumar's Rowdy
Rathore (Hindi version of Siruthai), did notable
business at the Chennai Box Office.
The theatres across the country screening Ek Tha Tiger
were overflowing with movie buffs within and outside in the morning
shows. In many places, the theatre owners had to call the police to
control the mob. Trade analysts have already predicted that Ek
Tha Tiger would collect Rs 27 to 30 crores nett on the first
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Ek Tha
Tiger is an out-and-out action entertainer. It is directed by
Kabir Khan and produced by Yash Raj Films. Sathyam Cinemas is
distributing the movie in Tamil Nadu.
