Ek Tha Tiger Has Record 9 Cr Wednesday

Ek Tha Tiger collected record numbers on Wednesday beating the numbers of Three Idiots. It had set records on many of the previous days also but that was all in the holiday period. Wednesday was the first day after the holiday period and bit like the Monday for normal Friday releases.

The Wednesday number should come in around 9 crore nett which is phenomenal. The film is being driven by business in mass pockets, UP is simply earth shattering and helped the Delhi/UP circuit to over 2 crore nett collections even though collections in Delhi city have come down from there high levels.

Ek Tha Tiger is Excellent Overseas : Makes 22 Cr in first weekend .

The pre Eid period and a non Pakistan release has kept the overall Overseas figures of Ek Tha Tiger figures below Bodyguard. United Kingdom and UAE are affected the most but the film should go strong in these markets over the weekdays and second weekend and the lifetime business of Ek Tha Tiger should easily emerge higher than Bodyguard. Below are the comparative figures for both films in major markets.

Ek Tha Tiger had very strong numbers Overseas as it collected around $4.75 million in five days. The business was a bit weak in the United Kingdom due to pre Eid period but should be very strong from Monday onwards and despite this sort of start may still do $1.5 million in United Kingdom.

Ek Tha Tiger had a record breaking 18 cr Monday.

Ek Tha Tiger broke all box office records for collections on Mondaydue to the national holiday for Eid. The film collected around 18 crore nett which is a record collection for Monday by a distance. Films like Dabangg and Three Idiots had the biggest collections on a Monday before of around 10.75 crore nett.

The six day total for Ek Tha Tiger is 113 crore nett approx. The
collections on Monday were huge at single screens especially in areas dominated by Muslim audiences while multiplexes had larger falls.

 

Tuesday should also come out with a strong number as single screens remain strong and it may become the highest grossing film
of 2012 in just its nine day extended first week.


Ek tha Tiger Had a 57 Cr First 3 day Weekend.

Ek Tha Tiger Falls On Friday But New creates New Weekend Record(Only Hindi version)
:—–

1.Ek Tha Tiger fell around 20% from Thursday as Friday collections look set
to come in the the 11.50 crore nett range. The three day collections of the film will be around 57-57.50 crore nett
which is record for the weekend (first three days)…..

2.The film is falling in the mass belts dominated by single screens and this could be due to the fact that it is the last few days of the fasting period before Eid. The multiplexes in Delhi and East Punjab are holding up much
better and in these areas there is less muslim audience…

3.Ra.one All Version 59 Crore Record Is Safe…Only Beat Hindi Version..


Ek Tha Tiger collected a 1 5crore nett on day 2

Ek Tha Tiger collected a 14.50 crore nett on day two

Ek Tha Tiger had pretty big falls in the mass areas across India but multiplexes have held up better especially in North India. There are circuits which have seen falls of nearly 60% but big markets like Delhi/UP and East Punjab are down less than 50% going by early numbers.

This is the trend nowadays that the higher you go on a national holiday the bigger the fall will on the a normal working day. Still Ek Tha Tiger has grossed in the 15 crore nett range s per early estimates on its second day which is record or near record collections for a non holiday and the figure looks even better considering the first day was a huge 31 crore nett plus.

The two day figures are 46 crore nett plus as per early estimates and the first three days look like going towards 60 crore which is 7-8 crore more than what any other film has collected over the first three days.
