Where is EK THA TIGER headed after a mind-boggling start on Wednesday [32.93 cr] and a dip in business on Thursday [14.50 cr]? Well, let's look at the 2-day totals from India and Overseasâ€¦
India [Wed + Thu] - 47.43 cr
U.S.A. [Wed + Thu] - 1.90 cr [some screens yet to report]
U.K. [Wed + Thu] - 1.25 cr
Australia [Wed + Thu] - 65.73 lacs
U.A.E. [Wed + Thu] - 1.96 cr
New Zealand [Thu] - 10.40 lacs
FRIDAY TO TUESDAY TRENDS
A further dip in business is expected today [Friday]. But the film should gather momentum towards evening/night shows, again. The business is expected to shoot upwards on Saturday and Sunday, while the Eid festivities on Monday and Tuesday is sure to witness incredible numbers. Like I keep saying, picture abhi baaki hain!
WILL IT OVERTAKE SALMAN'S HITS?
The one question on everyone's lips is [and my Twitter timeline is full with it], will EK THA TIGER overtake the lifetime business of DABANGG [147 cr] and BODYGUARD [148 cr]? Of course, it will. Just wait and watch! The Saturday to Tuesday business of EK THA TIGER will take the film to dizzy heights, for sure. Also, at the end of Week 1 [9 days], hopefully, EK THA TIGER will be able to cross the lifetime business of both these films. Yes, you read it right!
With Pakistan deciding against screening EK THA TIGER, Yash Raj will stand to lose at least 10 cr to 12 cr from this territory.
