Prior to Tiger Zinda Hai, Salman was seen in Yash Raj's Sultan which also minted more than Rs 300 crore.
Tizer Zinda Hai has officially entered the Rs 300 crore club. On Day 16, the movie has managed to bag Rs 300.89 crore and globally the movie is moving towards the Rs 500 crore mark. However, it should be noted that the collaboration between Salman Khan and Yash Raj Films has been fruitful for both the partners. Prior to Tiger Zinda Hai, Salman was seen in Yash Raj’s Sultan which also minted more than Rs 300 crore.
The other Salman-Yash Raj movie which minted good money was Ek Tha Tiger which released back in 2012.
On Saturday, Tiger Zinda Hai minted Rs. 5.50 crore which allowed the total to reach Rs 300.87 crore. This happens to be the third movie of Salman Khan which has managed to grab more than Rs 300 crore.
It should be noted that Tiger Zinda Hai only took 16 days to reach the Rs 300 crore mark. However, it should be noted that Tiger Zinda Hai became the highest grossing movie for the Yash Raj banner.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote: Another record that was set up by the Tiger Zinda Hai is Yash Raj’s HIGHEST GROSSER so far… Overtakes #Sultan [now at No 2], #Dhoom3 [now at No 3], #EkThaTiger [now at No 4] and #JabTakHaiJaan [now at No 5]… India biz.

Despite the slow start to the year 2017 with Tubelight, Salman Khan made sure the end was not the same. Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai box office collection was clear proof that Salman is here to stay.
Not only Salman Khan and Yash Raj Film’s duet is making good music at the box office. In fact, Katrina Kaif and Yash Raj Films’ tie-up goes back even further. With Yash Raj Films, Katrina Kaif has given six major hits. New York, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Ek Tha Tiger, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Dhoom3 and the recent, Tiger Zinda Hai. However, it should be noted that upcoming Yash Raj movie Thugs Of Hindostan, which is slated for Diwali 2018 release, has Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan shares the screen space with Katrina Kaif. Another box-office hit in making, only time will tell.
