Tiger Zinda Hai box office collection: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif starrer stands at Rs 173 cr
Tiger Zinda Hai is likely to cross the lifetime collection of its predecessor, Ek Tha Tiger, in the coming few days.
Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai continues to roar at box office. Following its extended weekend collection, the film was expected to take a substantial dip on Tuesday. However, it still managed to earn a staggering Rs 21.60 cr on its fifth day, only about Rs 15 crore less than its Christmas collection.
Thus, its current collection stands at Rs 173.07 crore.
Speed at which #TigerZindaHai is racing, it is all set to cross *lifetime biz* of #EkThaTiger [₹ 198.78 cr] in Week 1 itself... Will also cross *lifetime biz* of #GolmaalAgain [₹ 205.67 cr; highest grosser of 2017, after #Baahubali2] in next few days... INCREDIBLE! #TZH

This Christmas, theatres across the country saw an eclectic mix of films that spanned across genres, languages and stars. While Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif made their presence felt with Tiger Zinda Hai, Nani-Sai Pallavi won hearts with their film MCA. Akhil Akkineni and Kalyani Priyadarshan's Hello has been slow on the uptake, but has been growing over this long weekend.
And then, of course, there is the Star Wars franchise, which has emerged as a global cinematic phenomenon, ensuring the legacy of Lucas continues till the end of time. The recent release Star Wars: The Last Jedi has already minted above $745 million (as of Sunday 24 December) since its release, reports Financial Express.
Film trade analyst and critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and revealed the box office figures of MCA and Hello in the US market:
