While the box office numbers have been a little disappointing, if the trade experts are to be believed, 'Tubelight' might have to struggle to reach the Rs 200 crore mark.
“I feel the movie can collect somewhere in the range of Rs 150 crore plus in its lifetime run. Next weekend we only have Transformers: The Last Knight, which will take just one screen from every multiplex and single screens. But largely, in its second weekend too, it is going to be Tubelight all over the country. There is no other choice that the public has at the moment. So it will continue to rake in the moolah," Bollywood trade analyst Akshaye Rathi told Bollywood Life.
Talking about 'Tubelight', the movie is set on a backdrop of India-China 1962 war. Apart from Salman, the Kabir Khan directorial also stars Sohail Khan, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, late actor Om Puri and child actor Matin Rey Tangu.
