Walking on the similar lines, Salman released Tubelight during the Eid extended weekend. The film marks Salman’s third film collaboration with filmmaker Kabir Khan. However, Tubelight has received mixed reviews from the critics as well as audience, Bhaijaan fans like celebrating Eid with Salman’s film.
Tubelight collected Rs. 21.15 crores on Friday, Rs. 21.17 crores on Saturday and Rs. 22.45 crores on Sunday, making the total first weekend collection stand at Rs. 64.77 crores. These numbers although are good but not very striking considering the buzz it had and also citing all other Salman’s past releases. Tubelight seems to be the lowest in the first weekend collection track. Trade experts are predicting to bring in good numbers on first Monday i.e. today as the festive biz.
