According to Tiger Zinda Hai makers, it is Khan's biggest hit so far.

Khan said in a statement: "I hope the industry has many more bigger successes this year. It is important that we see more hits, more blockbusters. It will expand our industry, provide more jobs for people and entertain audiences much more. I'm happy with the business that Tiger Zinda Hai has been doing at the box office. Records are never ever-lasting. Records are meant to be broken and it's good for new records to happen more frequently. It is healthy and extremely important."

The high-on-action entertainer is the third Salman Khan movie to surpass the Rs 300 crore mark after Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan.

Both Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai — helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar —  are produced by Yash Raj Films.

Tiger Zinda Hai emerged as the highest grossing Hindi film of 2017, next only to the Hindi-dubbed version of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.

What makes Khamoshi so memorable despite its flaws, and what makes it so different from the plethora of alleged ‘remakes’ internationally, is Bhansali’s insistence on making (and calling) it a “musical”.
