Salman Khan's Tubelight Fails To Break Sultan and Prem Ratan Record

Salman Khan's Tubelight Fails To Break Sultan and Prem Ratan Record

This weekend one of the most awaited movie of the year "Tubelight" released at box office and collected very good bucks for the makers.

Unlike the recent movies of Salman, Tubelight failed to impress critics, and the box office figures suggest that it could not charm the audience either.

Is Salman Khan's "Tubelight" in for a power outage in Pakistan?

The film's collection on Monday will prove to be crucial in deciding its fate and owing to the Eid holiday, things look positive for now even though the prestigious 300 crore club looks like a distant dream.

Salman Khan maintains his record of ruling the box office with his Eid release. Tubelight also emerged as the third biggest opener worldwide this year after Bahubali: The Conclusion and Raees. The film starring Salman Khan and Sohail Khan in the lead role, the film also starring Zhu Zhu in the important role Chinese kid. He plays the character of Laxman Singh Bisht aka Tubelight, a manchild whose world revolves around his brother. To which he responded back saying, "I'm the same person". But, should we not praise him for performing this good in these scenes in the film?

So, when Salman Khan himself was asked about what he feels of the importance of his film, and whether he's able to take the criticism, he has a very positive response to the negative comments.

Tubelight had a better start in the morning shows on Sunday. The actor said that he was expecting far worse ratings for his film.

However, this year their fans didn't get to see the same moment again. "Well, there was a time in my life when I was surrounded by the negativity, however, I have never talked about this to anyone, the passage of time healed everything automatically".

Analysts have predicted the movie to do around Rs 55-60 crore business over the weekend.

This didn't go down well with Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman Pahlaj Nihalani, who condemned the telecast of the mini-trail which was meant for digital consumption only.
