Vidur’s Film Diary – August 2012


 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER  02, 2012           05.00 P.M.
Month of August had no surprises . Everything happened on the expected lines . ” Ek Tha Tiger “ came as a hurricane in 3300 cinema halls and multiplexes and devastated box office collections and wrote a new history .
It is the fastest film to earn 100 crore . It is the first film of  Yash Raj Banner to earn 100 crore . It is the 4th consecutive film of Salman Khan to earn 100 crore . And it is the 2nd biggest all time grosser Hindi film after 3 Idiots .
