Though the theatres opened for advance booking just some time back, the seats are already fast filling up. Trade experts are expecting to see a record-breaking opening box office collection of Tiger Zinda Hai.

Salman Khan is back to doing what he does best and there is incredible excitement among audiences to see their favourite bhai deliver a power-packed entertainer.

"There is a huge expectation from Tiger Zinda Hai. The trailer was mind-blowing and the songs have become huge chartbusters increasing the excitement among consumers. Audiences haven't seen a big scale entertainer for a while now and they are hungry for a good film.
