Tubelight was supposed to get a grand release and it is getting one of the widest releases for a Salman Khan film. But despite all that it fell short of the actor's last Diwali release, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Tubelight is releasing on 5500 screens while PRDP had opened with 5600 screens. But of course, it has managed to get more screens than Sultan (5450) and Dangal (5300). However it goes without saying that Tubelight will manage to get some really cool reviews and thus, will score big at the box office. It's Eid and Salman Khan... the blockbuster combo!
Earlier it was said that Tubelight will open with nearly 10000 screens but now it has managed only 5500 screens. Sultan, which was one of the biggest films of the actor last year, shattered all records when it released on Eid. The actor's wrestler turn was praised heavily by everyone, which helped it get an entry in the coveted Rs 300-crore club. Aamir Khan's Dangal was a wrestling drama again but the way it was presented, it managed to earn over Rs 380 crore at the box office. Right now, it is killing it in China by becoming a Rs 1000 crore film there. So it is obvious that since Tubelight has more number of screens than Sultan and Dangal, it will be able to beat their collections as well. As for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, it seems Salman Khan is a threat to himself only.
Now the wait is to see how much the film earns on its opening day. What do you think? What will be the first day figures of Tubelight?
