Tiger Zinda Hai is sort of a redemption of sorts for Salman Khan as his last release before this – Tubelight – opened to a rather lukewarm response.

Tiger Zinda Hai has done well all because of one reason, that is Katrina Kaif,” one news agency quoted Salman as saying. The Bollywood superstar was busy celebrating his 52nd birthday at his Panvel farmhouse when the paparazzi and the media caught up with him.

Joining Salman at his birthday celebrations were Katrina and director Ali Abbas Zafar, both were spotted at Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s Mumbai reception. Tiger Zinda Hai may have opened to middling reviews on Friday but the movie sure did cook up a storm at the box office, scoring over Rs 150 crores in just 4 days.

A further update is awaited on the film’s box office numbers, which is making steady progress towards the Rs.200 crore mark.
