Despite being Salman Khan‘s signature Eid release, it comtinues to witness a great fall in terms of collections at the box office. In four days, the film has not been able to mint Rs 100 crore at the theaters, which is a first for a Salman film in last one decade. It has been 6 days since Tubelight made its way to the theatres but sadly, it has not been able to enter the much coveted 100-crore club.
Tubelight is an entertaining family drama set in a small town in the hills of northern India, and tells the story of one man’s love for his family and his unshakeable belief in himself. After Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir Khan and Salman Khan come together to tell another heartwarming story about the power of doing good. Tubelight movie got mixed response and doing decent business at the domestic box office and overseas since the release.
Tubelight received mixed reviews from critics, also due to pre Eid time, it recorded lower footfalls in theaters than expected and remained almost flat over the weekend at box office. The below-expectations performance of the movie is very disappointing for fans as well as it’s entire team. After an under-performed weekend, this war drama was expected to take good jump on Monday due to Eid holiday.
In terms of box office, the film is facing a tough competition from Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham aka DJ, not only in the country but abroad as well. This is for the first time that another release is standing in the way of Salman Khan. Post Tubelight, Salman will be seen in Tiger Zinda Hai, which also stars Katrina Kaif in the lead role.
