Tiger Zinda Hai Box Office Prediction: Positives with the movie

1) The movie has created tremendous pre-release buzz. The trailer has received unanimous response and the songs have been loved by the music lovers. From the trailer, it looks like the most promising Bollywood movie of the year.

2) Salman Khan in itself is a big reason to watch this movie. His last release, Tubelight may have tanked at the box office but the stakes are always high with Salman Khan film.

3) Release Date: No one dares to take on with Salman Khan. TZH is releasing on a perfect day. With four days extended weekend and no competition from previous week movies, the movie is expected to make it large.

4) Ali Abbas Zafar: Zafar’s last film Sultan was a big blockbuster at the box office. With Salman reuniting with him once again, we can expect something magical.

5) Sequel factor: TZH is a sequel to 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger. Released on Eid 2012, Ek Tha Tiger recorded the highest opening of that time, earning 32.92 crores. It was the first movie to cross 100 crores in just 5 days.

6) Salman and Katrina Kaif’s dream pair: Salman and Katrina are reuniting after a long gap of 5 years. They were last seen together in Ek Tha Tiger, in which their chemistry was very much appreciated.

Tiger Zinda Hai Box Office Prediction: Opening And Lifetime

Keeping all above positives in mind, we are expecting Tiger Zinda Hai to take an earth shattering opening at the box office. As per our prediction, the first day collection of the movie should be around 38 crores. It will be one of the biggest openings of all time. In case of positive word of mouth, the movie will definitely cross 150 crores in the first weekend (It will be an extended opening weekend as Monday 25th December is a Christmas holiday).

So far, two Salman Khan movies, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan have crossed 300 crores at the domestic box office. With the current buzz and considering the above points, Tiger Zinda Hai should become his third 300 crore movie. It has a potential to shatter all box office records and emerge as highest grossing movie of Bollywood.

Tiger Zinda Hai Box Office Economics And Analysis

TZH is one of the most expensive films of Bollywood. It will release on 4000+ screens in India. The budget of the movie is 140 crores excluding Salman Khan’s fees. Salman Khan will take profit sharing like he did at the time of Sultan. Now, let’s talk about the economics of the film.

Verdict Domestic Collection (INR)
All-Time Blockbuster 370 crore
Blockbuster 320 crore
Super Hit 270 crore
Hit 220 crore
Average 180 crore
Flop Less than 160 crore
Disaster Less than 120 crore

As you can see in above table, TZH needs to earn 220 crores to be in a safe zone. This is a dream number for any other movie. Though the expectations are big and the movie will take huge opening, crossing 220 crores will not be a cakewalk. It will become tough if the content fails to impress the audience.

As the expectations are huge, anything below 300 crores will be a dissatisfying number for producers and exhibitors. Now, let’s have a look at opening day and lifetime collection prediction of Tiger Zinda hai based on the word of mouth of the movie.

Tiger Zinda Hai Opening Day Collection: 38 crores

If the word of mouth turns out positive
First Weekend: 150 to 155 crores
First Week: More than 230 crores
Lifetime collection: 350+ crores
