Star Value: If a film has Salman Khan in the lead, nobody can disagree that its star value is supremely high! Since Ek Tha Tiger also has one of the most famous actresses Katrina Kaif, its star value becomes the highest.
Hype: These days, a Salman movie creates hype right from the time it is announced. The same was the case with Ek Tha Tiger. And as the promos and songs released, they created tremendous excitement, as expected.
Music: The music of the movie has added to the euphoria surrounding the movie. Songs ‘Mashallah’ and ‘Laapata’ have received thumbs up from the audience. The rest of the tracks too are gaining popularity.
If an unimpressive Salman movie like Bodyguard can create box office history, predicting the outcome of Ek Tha Tiger is a child’s play. The actor’s presence coupled by the hype will fetch the movie an earth-shattering opening at the box office, both in the metros as well as the smaller centers.
There is no doubt that the film will be the biggest hit of the year so far, regardless of the level of content. Don’t be surprised if Ek Tha Tiger becomes just the second movie after 3 Idiots to cross the Rs 200 crore mark. It is also certain that the film will break Ra.One's record of earning Rs 25 crore on the first day, which is highest collections for a movie on a single day. There are speculations that the Salman and Katrina starrer might even be the first film to earn Rs 30 crore on the first day.
