In a previous piece, Firstpost had reported that the first day collection of Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight has been a dismal low.
Kabir Khan's period drama Tubelight has received mixed reviews from critics and a polarised reaction from the audience. But Salman Khan has maintained that his films are 'critic-proof' and will work at the box office despite low ratings.
The Indian Express reports that the film has garnered Rs 21.15 crore on the first day domestically.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh's tweet on 24 June on Salman's Eid releases shows that Tubelight has been the lowest grosser on day 1 so far:
The next day, Satuday, also didn't show any improvement in the box-office graph. The day 2 figures of Tubelight are out. Adarsh posted on Twitter:
#Tubelight Fri 21.15 cr, Sat 21.17 cr. Total: ₹ 42.32 cr. India biz.

There has been a rise of just Rs 2 lakh in the figures which is nearly nothing. Salman Khan films and Eid were like the best partnership at the box-office game. But this time, the figures say a different story.
However, it is just the second day for the film. Also, during the Ramzan period it is quite probable that many of his fans haven't yet been able to reach the theatres (abstinence period). So once the lent period breaks on Monday with Eid, the graph could shoot and compensate on all these low-performing days.
Directed by Kabir Khan, Tubelight also stars Chinese actor Zhu Zhu, Sohail Khan, late Om Puri and Shah Rukh Khan in a small cameo appearance.
