Ek Tha Tiger

When Tiger arrive, everyone has to run. “Ek Tha Tiger” is one such film that its release during Eid has sent jitters to other movie releases. Most producers are shying away from releasing their movie along “Ek Tha Tiger”. The year’s most awaited movie “Ek Tha Tiger” is produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films’ banner. The movie is romantic thriller, directed by Kabir Khan.

Salman Khan has given series of blockbusters – WANTED in 2009, DABANGG in 2010, READY and BODYGUARD in 2011. Bodyguard is the highest grossing Hindi movie ever after “3 Idots”.

The stacks for “Ek Tha Tiger” are very high and everyone expects this movie will gross over Rs.200 crore in domestic collections in the initial weekend itself. The movie is releasing on 15 August – a very long holiday season in India. 15 August is Independence Day, followed by regular Friday, then the week end, which again is followed by Ramzan Eid.

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are back as pair after four years. We have to wait and watch if Salman Khan can deliver another blockbuster hit.
