It is probably after 3 years that Salman Khan will be seeing a not so happy and ‘prosperous’ eid. The actor, who is known for giving some of the highest grossing movies of the year, could not do it this time. Yes, this year’s Salman Khan release Tubelight had a week opening with just somewhere around 20 crores, and even in spite of a holiday weekend it has not been able to collect a mere amount of 100 crores. The weekend collection of this Salman Khan starrer remains to be somewhere between 60 to 70 crore. The exact number that comes out is 64.77 crore. Surprising isn’t it? Never the less, Salman Khan had already announced a statement where he clearly said that it doesn’t matter even if the mocie does not work, as all he wants to earn at this point is respect. Besides, trade analyst Taran Adarsh has also said that the collections of Monday may help Tubelight haul up its pace and make it to the 100 crore club.

Various reasons are being speculated for the film’s weak running. One of which includes Salman not doing what he is generally known for doing in the movies. ‘The Salman Masala’ is missing. For many people the movie appeared very plain and weak, without any romance or action.

Salman Khan will be next seen in Tiger Zinda hai alongside Katrina Kaif. The movie is a sequel to the blockbuster hit ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.
