Although Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai became the highest Bollywood grosser of 2017, it did not really face much of a challenge, considering how the year saw one big-budget flop after another. Dethroning Rohit Shetty's Golmaal Again to become Bollywood's biggest earner, Tiger Zinda Hai hit the Rs 300 crore mark on its third week.
It additionally brings some great news for Salman Khan as the sequel of Kabir Khan's action flick, Ek Tha Tiger' becomes his third film to make Rs 300 crore. The other two movies are Bajrani Bhaijan and Sultan.
It continues its rule in its fourth week as well. According to Taran Adarsh, Tiger Zinda Hai made Rs 2.12 crore on Thursday, taking its India collection to Rs 318.86 crore.
