The theatrical run of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai has finally come to an end at the UAE Box Office. The action-entertainer, which had released on December 21 2017 in UAE had its final screening on Wednesday. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Yash Raj Films, Tiger Zinda Hai starred Katrina Kaif in the female lead.

Catch had previously reported that Tiger Zinda Hai ran for 56 theatrical days in UAE and also equals all-India blockbuster Baahubali 2's record to become the fourth highest running Indian film in UAE.

However, many are unaware that with Tiger Zinda Hai's final theatrical run in UAE, Salman Khan has set another record to his credit.

Interestingly, Salman Khan is now the second Indian actor after Malayalam superstar Mohanlal to have two films among the top 4 list of highest running films at the UAE Box Office. Earlier, the Dabangg actor's 2015 blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan ran for 75-theatrical days to emerge as the third highest running Indian film across the cinemas of UAE.

Mohanlal still holds the top two spots with his all-time blockbusters Drishyam (125 days) and Pulimurugan (98 days). 

Have a look at the highest running Indian films at the UAE Box Office: 

1) Drishyam – Malayalam – 125 days 

2) Pulimurugan – Malayalam – 98 days 

3) Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Hindi – 75 days 

4) Baahubali 2 – Telugu – 56 days / Tiger Zinda Hai - Hindi - 56 days
