Eid belongs to Salman Khan and considering the superstar has returned to his lucky date after a year, with his last Eid release being Sultan, Tubelight gotta be all the more special. So will Eid yet again turn out to be lucky for Salman? Famous trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted, "@BeingSalmanKhan ‘s #Tubelight is expected to take ₹ 100+ Cr Opening for the 1st weekend and Lifetime Biz of ₹ 350+ Cr Nett in #India..” He had also predicted that Tubelight has the potential to earn Rs 350 crore in the domestic market. If that happens, it will become Salman Khan’s highest grossing film ever. Bajrangi Bhaijaan had earned Rs 320.34 crore while Sultan was slightly over Rs 300 crore. Clearly, Tubelight will become his richest film ever. Also Bala had revealed that the film will get a release in 10000 screens worldwide. That makes it the widest release ever for an Indian film beating Baahubali 2 which had released with 9000 screens. Check out his predictions here again…
