As predicted, Salman Khan’s movie Kick has collected Rs 100 crore at the box office in India, egged on by the Eid holiday of Tuesday, July 29. Kick’s three-day box office figures stood at over Rs 83 crores, and so it was obvious it will garner Rs 20 crore more in the next two days – Monday and Tuesday. The film’s opening collections were the highest this year yet.
