MUMBAI: Today morning India saw the magic of a ‘movie-star’. They queued up for ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ tickets even before the sun rose, while 80% of tickets were already sold out when the advance booking opened.
Maddening crowds conquered cinemas for the ‘First Day, First Show’ of the movie, which features their ‘icon’ – Salman Khan. This is not the story of just a city, or a single-screen cinema, but almost entire country experienced this ‘mind-numbing’ phenomena.
‘Ek Tha Tiger’ has opened to full-houses, registering 100% opening in Gujarat, Punjab, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Bihar regions. All opening shows in Mumbai too saw 100% occupancy.
It’s too early to put a figure to the collections so far by ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, but going by the 100% opening at not just few cities, but almost entire country, it would not be early to say that Salman Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ has taken the biggest opening ever, surpassing by far all the previous opening records.
