Everyone was surprised today when the first poster of Salman Khan‘s Tubelight was released. The movie is set to release this Eid (June 23) and like every Salman Khan release, we are sure Tubelight is going to rake in a huge amount of money. But even before the teaser has been released, the movie has collected a humongous amount and become a BLOCKBUSTER! If you don’t believe us then let me tell you that the makers of Tubelight have already pocketed Rs 227 crore from the music and theatrical rights alone.
Sony Music India had snapped up the music rights for Rs 20 crore. NH Studioz, on the other hand, has bought the Indian theatrical rights for Rs 132 crore. A Chinese company has also paid Rs 35 crore for the theatrical rights of Tubelight in China. When you add these three figures, you will figure out that Salman Khan’s movie has already earned Rs 227 crore. (ALSO READ – Tubelight first poster out!

Made on a budget of nearly Rs 100 crore, Tubelight is already a profitable venture. So once the film hits the screens, the theatrical collections and the satellite rights will add to these profits. And with that, we can conclude that Tubelight is already a blockbuster. But will it beat Dangal‘s lifetime collection and become the highest grossing film ever? Well, time will only tell!

Also starring Chinese supermodel Zhu Zhu, Tubelight has a backdrop of the 1962 Indo-Sino war. With such a backdrop and the presence of a Chinese actress, we are sure the movie will perform well in China too. Anyway, how excited are you to watch Salman Khan’s Tubelight?
