Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer big ticket Christmas release Tiger Zinda Hai had a roaring run at the box-office, with the film having bagged over Rs 327 crore in its stupendous run. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and bankrolled by Aditya Chopra under the banner of Yash Raj Films, the film released across 5825 screens in India and abroad, which is a record. The wide release, however, paid off handsomely, as Tiger Zinda Hai turned out to be the biggest success ever for Salman and YRF.
Tiger Zinda Hai has brought the makers a profit of around Rs 188 crore. While the film has Rs 148.50 crore coming in as the distributor's share from the domestic box-office collection, it has earned Rs 49.8 crore as the distributor's share from the overseas collection.
Besides that, it has obtained Rs 70 crore from the satellite rights, Rs 55 crore from the digital rights and Rs 15 crore from the music and merchandising. The total becomes a staggering Rs 338.30 crore. Minus the budget of Rs 150 crore from it and you have the profit of Rs 188.30 crore. Going by these figures, the return on investment for Tiger Zinda Hai is an impressive 125.53 percent, highest for a Hindi film released in 2017.
Like most of Salman Khan's recent movies have gone on to become blockbuster hits. Irrespective of when it releases, theatres running the superstar's movie receive an unparalleled footfall.
Tiger Zinda Hai is the sequel of Kabir Khan's blockbuster hit, Ek Tha Tiger, so it was bound to see packed theatres.
Not only an overall good collection, Tiger Zinda Hai also set a record of becoming Salman Khan's highest single day grosser ever, with a collection of Rs 45.53 crore at the box office on its first Sunday itself.
Directed by Ali Abbas Khan, Tiger Zinda Hai revolves around the lives of ISI agent Zoya and RAW agent Tiger, who are now married and have a son. Tiger and Zoya set out to rescue 25 Indian nurses & 15 Pakistani nurses, kidnapped by a terrorist group of Iraq. Katrina Kaif's action sequences have particularly been appreciated by both viewers and critics.
