Ek Tha Tiger earns Rs 210 crore

Ek Tha Tiger’ is making it huge. In less than a fortnight, it has earned 210 crores. It has already surpassed Salman’s previous hits ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Bodyguard’. They had earned 147 and 148 crores respectively. The movie is expected to bypass the 300 cr earning of the movie ‘3 Idiots’.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh had also tweeted the same, “#EkThaTiger 12-day total of *approx* Rs 175 cr nett is from India alone. #EkThaTiger India + Overseas combined biz *after 2nd Weekend* is Rs 210 cr +. ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER…” It is also close to 3idiots, as Taran further tweeted, India Rankings TOP 3:- No 1 - #3Idiots 202 cr nett), No 2 - #EkThaTiger (175 cr nett, still counting), No 3 - #Bodyguard (148 cr nett).”

Salman has emerged as the man with the Midas touch. His movies have earned more than 750 crores in the last 3 years. Though most of his movies are released during Eid, they cater to people across all communities. The reasons for Salman’s success are many. Most of the Indian movie goers watch movies for recreation and entertainment. Salman’s action movies provide that to the hilt. Salman’s portal of larger than life characters with amazing stunts has become the talk of the town, especially amongst the youngsters. Add to that Salman’s extraordinary comic timing. All this combined; it is a total paisa-wassol for his fans.

This is not the end for the 46-year old actor. His ‘Dabangg 2’ is in the pipeline. It is also thought to be a block buster in the making.

Even his rivals are saying good words about him. Take for example Shahrukh Khan. When he was asked about Salman and Katrina’s pairing in the film, he said, “It is very nice they have done few movies together. I think chemistry is a too deeper word… media has created it. Kajol and I always had this issue, ‘what is this chemistry?’ It has taken me years to understand what this means.” He further said “I don’t know about the chemistry but it looks like a wonderful pair. I wish them all the luck.”

There have been some funny tweets about ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. Model Poonam Pandey had tweeted, “Save the Bengal tiger...or else very soon we will say #EkThaTiger”. KRK (Kamaal R Khan) had said, “#EkThaTiger jaisi film ko kisi critic ke review ki zaroorat nahi hoti. Woh release hoti hai toh sirf super hit hi hoti hai.” That’s true. The tiger is really roaring loud.
