Salman's Ek Tha Tiger to have a sequel?
By Hindustan Times
After taking a stupendous start at the box-office, Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger is all set for a sequel. The Salman-Katrina starrer has earned over Rs. 50 crore so far and is expected to break more records.
Buzz is that the production company has registered two titles Ek Hai Tiger and Ek Rahega Tiger for the part 2 of the flick, reports Mid Day.
If all goes well, the tiger saga will continue and so its successful run at the box office.
A roaring success
Meanwhile the film is breaking records at the box office. The film that amassed over Rs. 30 crore on day 1, now stands at about Rs. 48.92 crore.
"After shattering every record possible to shreds Ek Tha Tiger moved to its 2nd day. As per early estimates the movie would have made 16 Crores on it's Day 2 at the Indian Box Office. Ek Tha Tiger had grossed a humongous 32.92 Crores on it's Day 1 and it's total box office collections till date stands at 48.92 Crores," reports Koimoi.com.
"The fall was quite expected as Thursday was a working day and not a holiday unlike Wednesday. However, the movie is expected to hit the chords again this weekend. There is no doubt that Ek Tha Tiger will prove to be an all time blockbuster at the box office if it sustains its momentum even for a weekend," adds the website.
No entry for Tiger in Pak
Apparently, post the back and forth pertaining to the release of the film in Pakistan, it is now learnt that Ek Tha Tiger will not hit the theatres there.
This comes after initial reports that of the film being banned in Pakistan on the grounds of its theme being anti-Pakistan, but recently an NOC was granted for Ek Tha Tiger to be screened for the censor board members there. However, now it appears that ETT failed to convince Pakistani board members of the benevolent treatment of their country in the film.
With Eid just around the corner, this setback may just prove costly putting a dent to the gross collection of the film.
