At the start of the year, Dharma Productions’ Agneepath took a grand opening at the box-office due to some heavy advance booking, which is a rare occurrence in Bollywood these days. But the advance booking of Yash Raj Films’ Ek Tha Tiger has been even crazier. Ever since the booking started last weekend, the response has been unprecedented. This brings back memories of the good old days when advance booking was a norm for every big budget movie.
Judging by the crazy response for the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer, it is certain that the film will break Ra.One‘s record of earning Rs 25 crore in one day. At that time, Ra.One had broken the record of Salman’s Bodyguard which had earned Rs 21 crore in one day. Now that Ek Tha Tiger is all set to break Ra.One‘s record and SRK’s next releasing later this year, it looks like the see-saw battle of the two Khans is going to continue for a long time.
Coming back to Ek Tha Tiger, it won’t be surprising if it becomes the first film to earn Rs 30 crore in a single day and the second film after 3 Idiots to cross Rs 200 crore overall.Having said that, let’s hope the film also manages to impress with its content, unless Ra.One and Bodyguard.
