Amongst the three mighty Khans, he is now the only one to make an entry into 200 crore club and one can be rest assured that all eyes are on how he manages to achieve this feat.
It must be mentioned here that his Ek Tha Tiger came precariously close to gaining an entry into this club in Eid 2012. However, after a record breaking opening and then further superb innings in days to come, it came very close to Aamir's record of 3 Idiots (Rs. 202 crore) before ending its run in theatres at the Rs. 199 crore mark. He did have Dabangg 2 arriving later in the year and the film did well to cross the Rs. 150 crore mark.
However, with no release for more than a year, others make most of the open months in front of them, hence seeing many major biggies arriving in the form of Dhoom 3, Chennai Express, Krrish 3 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
The first big milestone for the film would be to manage the biggest release ever, which should be a good possibility, considering the fact that it has an immense appeal in single screens as well, in addition to multiplexes where it would arrive on record count. Though the promo has given a sense of deja vu, considering its action theme, the fact remains that ever since Wanted, it is this very element that has resulted in Salman films gaining audience from strength to strength.
With its status of being the first major release of 2014, Jai Ho could well set the tone for how the year would look like for 'masala' entertainers.
