Salman Khan’s most awaited film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ might have received mixed response from critics, but the Kabir Khan film has kept the Box Office ringing since its release.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, ETT has been shot at expensive locales spread across 5 countries. The Rs 75 crore budget film has reportedly made a business of Rs 32 crore on the first day itself!
Early morning, on August 15, Salman Khan’s sister had tweeted: “The TIGER has arrived! Congratulation & all the best to the whole team of Ek Tha Tiger! You’ll have to break all records!”
Well, she was indeed right, as on the first day itself the film broke many records. Soon after the clock strike 9:30 am on Independence Day, crowd lined up in front of the ticket-window. Some were lucky, while some left disappointed, as getting the ticket of this much-anticipated blockbuster wasn’t an easy task for anyone.
Buzz says that it was indeed a lucky day for black marketers as sources say that a ticket that usually costs around Rs 90 was being sold for as much as Rs 750. Incidentally, the last time black marketers had a ball was during Dabangg when each ticket sold for as much as Rs 450. And hence, Salman broke the record of his own film.
