The Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai is roaring at the box-office by earning more than Rs 250 crore at the 10th day of its opening. The movie crossed Rs 150 cr mark in just five days and now it is slowly and steadily moving towards the coveted Rs 300 crore mark . Now, Paresh Pahuja, who made his Bollywood debut with the film, says he predicted the box office success of the Salman Khan starrer.
"Success of the first film is extremely important for any actor's career, and 'Tiger Zinda Hai' is a blockbuster. I predicted it as it has Salman and (actress) Katrina Kaif together. It is also the sequel to the superhit film 'Ek Tha Tiger'," Paresh said in a statement.
"Life has changed completely. People recognise me now. Professionally, things have changed big time. My phone hasn't stopped ringing. My dream directors are interested in me. People have voted for me for the Filmfare Best Supporting Role and Best Debut. My speech is already ready," he added.
On his debut with Salman, he said: "He has been my favourite since 'Karan Arjun'. I got to be in the same frame with him in my first film. The feeling was surreal."
The movie starred the hit jodi of Salman and Katrina after a long gap. Tiger Zinda Hai is the sequel to 2012 film Ek Tha Tiger. The lifetime collection of the prequel was Rs 198.78 cr.
