The box office figures indicate Salman Khan's new film may rank among the highest grossing Bollywood movie this year. Considering the long weekend, due to the Christmas holiday, Tiger Zinda Hai has one extra day to rake in more money at the box office.
The movie is releasing across a whopping 5,700 screens all over the world. Although it is more than Salman Khan's Tubelight and Sultan, it is still less than SS Rajamauli's epic blockbuster Bahubali: The Conclusion and Shahrukh Khan's Happy New Year. In this sequel, RAW agent Tiger and ISI agent Zoya, who are married and have a child set forth to rescue 25 Indian nurses who have been kidnapped by a terrorist group in Iraq. From thereon, Tiger and Zoya burst from one frame to another by kicking and punching the bad guys. The film is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who also directed Sultan.
