Tubelight 2nd Day Box Office Collection: The big Eid release Tubelight has hit the screens but it has fallen below the expectations. In fact, the opening day was one of the lowest for Salman Khan starrers. One hoped that the film will pick up over the weekend. However, it has fallen flat on Saturday which has increased the risks. Take a look at Tubelight collection report.
According to the early trade trends, Tubelight 2nd day collection will be in the range of 19-20 crores if it witnesses the expected growth in night shows.
The film started with a similar start as yesterday with limited drops in the morning shows as the occupancy was in the range of 30%. Again it was better in North Indian markets like Delhi/NCR and Punjab but the rest opened below par. In noon shows there was just about the normal trend and there was nothing extraordinary. The overall drop in the morning and noon shows was around 10%.
Tubelight did pick up in the evening shows due to the obvious reasons. Still, it was not up to the mark. The film remained poor in South India where Telugu film DJ continued to dominate. Pre-Eid effect is there but it is not affecting DJ at all which remained strong on Saturday. Allu Arjun starrer has also beaten Tubelight in some of the overseas territories.

Ideally Tubelight Saturday collection needed to show a good 20% growth but it might even fall below yesterday's figures. This would have sealed the fate of the film at the box office if there was no Eid. But there is a slight hope during Eid when the majority of the Muslim section comes to theatres. If that happens, then it can push the film towards a reasonable total. Otherwise writing is on the wall.
The trend is not looking good if we compare it to some of the last Eid releases. Tubelight box office collection in 2 days will be more than 40 crores. The film has also fared poorly in overseas markets. Tubelight collection in overseas is around $1.7 million which is lower than most of the biggies.
Now the only plus is that advance is better on Sunday so it can be the highest earner day for Tubelight. Though overall it needs a miraculous turnaround for even crossing 200 crores mark.
