Serious number crunching kept twitterati busy on Sunday all for Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer Tiger Zinda Hai. The movie released on Friday, in a non-holiday week and made Rs 34.10 crore on day one. On Saturday, the amount reached Rs 35.30 crore, totalling to Rs 69.40 crore. On Sunday too the responses were so good that it is expected to cross Rs 100 crore.
The movie, a spy-thriller, is a sequel to Ek Tha Tiger, which released in 2012. With a whopping opening day collection of Rs 32.92 crore, Ek Tha Tiger became the highest opener ever, back then. It also became the film to rake in Rs 100 crore at the fastest rate, at that time.

Will it surpass Baahubali 2?
SS Rajamouli's Baahubali 2 collected Rs 40 crore on its first day, and reached the Rs 100 crore mark by the end of the opening weekend. Salman's fans expect Tiger Zinda Hai to match the figures.
As per reports from few trade sites, @TigerZindaHai is chasing mind-boggling number of Baahubali2.Yes,you heard it right, currently noon shows are running over 90% occupancy and if it maintains the same pace in evening and night shows then number will be in the range of 42-45cr— Prashant Yadav (@BeingPrashant96) December 24, 2017
Totally loved #TigerZindaHai . Salman looks breathtakingly hot in the movie. This is coming from a non Salman fan. I cant even imagine how his fangirls must have felt. Plus Salman has acted brilliantly. He is Indeed a Tiger.— Arshi (@Nakuulholic) December 23, 2017
