Tiger Zinda Hai box office collection day 11: Salman Khan film is unstoppable.

A sequel to 2012’s Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai also stars Katrina Kaif and both she and Salman reprise their roles of spies once again from Kabir Khan directed original movie. Tiger Zinda Hai is helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar.

Tiger Zinda Hai is already become the biggest film in India after Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and as 2017 comes to an end, we can take it as the last hurrah of Indian cinema. Tiger Zinda Hai also does not have any competition in Hindi cinema until January 26 when Aiyaary and PadMan release. So, the rein of Salman Khan is expected to continue for a better part of January.

But you can see she enjoys kicking butt: you wish she had more to do,” she had said,
