He tweeted: "Big thank you to all for giving me my career's biggest opening ever."

Earlier, Salman shared a video of streams of fans who gathered outside his house to greet the superstar Eid Mubarak.
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, "Bharat", which also stars actress Katrina Kaif, is Salman's biggest Eid opener.
"'Bharat' storms the box office. Proves yet again Salman Khan is the biggest crowd puller. 'Bharat' opens much bigger than Salman and Ali Abbas Zafar's 'Tiger Zinda Hai (Rs 34.10 crore) and 'Sultan' (Rs 36.54 crore). 'Bharat' - Wednesday (Rs 42.30 crore) India business," Taran tweeted.

After receiving a positive response from the audience, Zafar said in a statement: "It is humbling to be showered this kind of love by audiences. I have tried to present Salman Khan in a totally new light and as a totally new hero with 'Bharat'.
"I'm ecstatic that audiences have liked our attempt to make 'Bharat' a thoroughly entertaining joyride that also has its soul in the right place."
