Ek Tha Tiger collected record numbers on Wednesday beating the numbers of Three Idiots. It had set records on many of the previous days also but that was all in the holiday period. Wednesday was the first day after the holiday period and bit like the Monday for normal Friday releases.
The Wednesday number should come in around 9 crore nett which is phenomenal. The film is being driven by business in mass pockets, UP is simply earth shattering and helped the Delhi/UP circuit to over 2 crore nett collections even though collections in Delhi city have come down from there high levels.
The central belts are also very strong though there were larger drops in parts of the Mumbai and South Indian circuits. Overall the film is looking set for a good run over the next few weeks.
