Anticipating a roaring box office success, the makers of the recently released Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif spy thriller are already said to be making grand plans for the future. Buzz is that the production company has already registered two titles Ek Hai Tiger and Ek Rahega Tiger, indicating that there could well be a sequel around the corner.
Our sources say that though word-of-mouth has not been so encouraging, the makers are quite upbeat about the response the film has received. While the film raked in nearly Rs 30 crore on day one, the second day collections dropped drastically almost by 50 per cent to settle at nearly Rs 15 crore. A trade analyst on conditions of anonymity says, “With the long weekend coming up along with Eid, collections are like to increase. But right now, it’s still a long way to go to touch the Rs 150 crore mark.”
Pak says No
When the trailer of the film was released, Pakistani Censor Board officials banned it, claiming that the film tarnishes the image of their intelligence agency ISI. Now it has been announced that even the film won’t be screened there. The Yash Raj Studios spokesperson says, “The film has not been cleared for release by their Censor Board after they saw it day before yesterday.”
