Tiger 3 is all set to roar at the Indian box office this Sunday onwards, and the storm is expected to grip the entire nation. Starring Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Emraan Hashmi in key roles, the film is poised to become the biggest outing in YRF’s Spy Universe.
Advance booking for day 1 is moving in the right direction, but Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan has set a big target to beat. Tiger 3 is expected to open with a bang, and with a strong word-of-mouth, it has the potential to break all box office records. The film’s high-octane action sequences, patriotic theme, and star-studded cast are likely to appeal to a wide range of audiences.
For those unfamiliar, Pathaan sold over 32.43 crores in gross tickets nationwide (excluding blocked seats) through advance booking for opening day. This was a historic response and a surprising number, given that the Shah Rukh Khan starrer was a non-holiday release.
In addition to the domestic market, Tiger 3 is also expected to perform well overseas. The film has a significant following in the Middle East, North America, and Europe. With its global appeal, Tiger 3 has the potential to become one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time.
After Kabir Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar, Maneesh Sharma has taken on the mantle of directing the Tiger franchise, a massive responsibility to bear. The pre-release buzz around the film is deafening, with many expecting it to surpass Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan as the biggest YRF Spy Universe film to date. While everything has fallen into place so far, the task of becoming the #1 Spy Universe film is no easy feat.
Pathaan generated immense euphoria among fans, as Shah Rukh Khan was returning to the big screen after four years. As expected, advance booking for the film went into riot mode as soon as it commenced. Across national cinema chains, normal multiplexes, and single screens, Pathaan received a phenomenal response and posted monstrous pre-sale numbers for opening day.
