Tubelight 8th day collection: Salman Khan's film continues to struggle

Tubelight 8th day collection: The movie was expected to remain steady in the second week but it continues to struggle.

Who would have thought that the most awaited movie of the year will find it difficult to cross attract the audience in the second week? Well, this is what happening right now. Salman Khan’s Tubelight is running almost empty theatres in most parts of the country. The movie has been struggling from the very first day. After an average opening week with the collection of 106.86 crores, the movie was expected to remain steady as it has no competition at the box office. But that didn’t happen. In fact, it witnessed a big drop in collections on its second Friday.

As per early estimates, Tubelight collected around 3 crores on its second Friday. After 8 days, the total collection of the movie stands at 109.86 crores. With the collection of 109.86 crores, it is now the fifth highest grosser of 2017 after Bahubali 2, Raees, Jolly LLB 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania.

Tubelight 8th day collection: Way Ahead

The current trend suggests that Tubelight will wrap up its box office journey this week itself. Tubelight may witness some jump on Saturday and Sunday but after that, it will be all over it. After 8 days, the worldwide collection of the movie stands at 190 crores. It will cross 200 crores mark by the end of the second weekend but after that, it will be all curtains.

We are expecting the lifetime collection of Tubelight to be in the range of 120 to 125 crores. Tubelight will be Salman Khan’s lowest grossers after Jai Ho (111 crores) released in January 2014. Salman Khan’s last four movies have crossed 200 crores at the domestic box office.

Tubelight is a flop as the distributors have incurred huge losses. Made on a budget of 100 crores excluding Salman Khan’s fee, Tubelight should earn 150 crores to be called a hit at the box office. The movie was sold to NH Studioz for whopping 132 crores.
