Salman Khan, the king of Box Office, is ready for the release of his next movie Ek Tha Tiger. Known as a crowd puller, the actor, who is on a dream run with his last three movies joining the elite 100 Crore Club, is looking forward for setting a new bench mark at the Bollywood Box Office. And, traders are also expecting the same!
The actor had recently claimed that he wants all his movies to cross Rs 200 crore mark. Though it looked like a casual statement and merely a wish of Sallu, traders took it seriously and started predicting about its collections. As a result, there are quite a few reports emerging on the possibilities of Ek Tha Tiger breaking some records.
After registering his name thrice in the 100 Crore Club, which itself is a record as no male actor’s movie has scored century thrice, he is game for doing it for the fourth time with Ek Tha Tiger. Firstly, Sallu bhai has his own records before him. His earlier movie Bodyguard owns the record of scoring fastest century of reaching the mark in just eight days and his fans are hopeful of breaking it.
The next comes the overall domestic collections. Dabangg was his first entry to the 100 Crore Club and it went on to collect Rs 140.10 at Indian market. Then came Ready, which took 12 days to reach the mark, earned Rs 122 crore in Indian soil followed by Bodyguard that went on to collect Rs 145 crore alone in India. If Ek Tha Tiger can beat this record, there are strong chances of breaking the record of 3 Idiots, which is the highest-ever grossing Indian movie.
The Aamir Khan starrer movie had collected Rs 385 crore worldwide and no other Hindi movies in the recent years have come closer to beat the 3 Idiots record. Well, can Salman Khan break his own records? Will Ek Tha Tiger write a new history at Bollywood Box Office History? Only time can answer.
