Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan Box Office Creates History! Beats Tiger Zinda Hai, Sultan & Every Other Salman Khan Film (Top 10 Openers) With A 62.89% Day 2 Jump
KKBKKJ box office discussion has been an interesting topic to look out for and discuss how Salman Khan’s stardom is giving the desired push to the film. But is it really the ‘superstardom’ some BO reporters want you to believe, or is it just the Eid holiday helping the movie in no way one would’ve imagined?
Well, of course, both of these things are interdependent, as there can’t be a single factor driving the force solely. So, to dive deep into numbers, we took the day 1 & day two figures of Salman Khan’s top 10 highest opening movies and calculated the jump/drop on the second day from the first.
Upon calculating the same, we concluded that KKBKKJ had created history because it has achieved something no other Salman Khan film has from his top 10 highest openers of all time.
Check out the data below before we reveal how’s the history created:
Day 1: 42.30 crores (Eid)
Day 2: 31 crore
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo:
Day 1: 40.35 crores (Diwali’s 2nd day)
Day 2: 31.03 crores
Day 1: 36.54 crores
Day 2: 37.20 crores (Eid)
Tiger Zinda Hai (22nd December -Christmas Weekend)

Ek Tha Tiger:
Day 1: 33 crores (Independence Day)

Bajrangi Bhaijaan (not to be confused with Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan):
Day 1: 27.25 crore
Day 2: 36.50 crore (Eid)
Kick: (25th July release, Eid on 29th July)
Day 1: 26.52 crores

Day 2: 25.75 crores
So, did you see what KKBKKJ has done for Salman Khan, which even his highest grossers like Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai couldn’t? Yep, it’s the historic 62.89% jump from day 1 to day two, which indicates this has much to do with Salman’s stardom than just being a holiday.
Interesting points to note:
– Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’s jump % (62.89%) is almost double that of the second best, i.e. Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which is at 34.04%.
– Though Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger witnessed the highest drop (55.91%), it was back in 2012, and it became Salman Khan’s highest-grossing movie film, maintaining the record for almost two years until Kick was released in 2014.
– Despite a gargantuan jump of 30.78% on day two from day 1, Race 3 managed to do a lifetime business of just 169 crores which is 5.79 times of its opening day and just a mere 1.16 times of its opening week (145 crores). If we apply a similar formula to Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, keeping the WOM content in mind, it could end up below 100 crores at just 91.60 crores.
